Cracked Glass? Why You Should Get a Windshield Replacement Now July 30, 2018

Cracked Glass? Why You Should Get a Windshield Replacement Now, Cincinnati, Ohio

If your auto glass has a small crack, it may seem like an issue you can safely ignore. However, you should arrange for a windshield replacement or repair promptly after the crack first forms. Even a small amount of damage will get worse with time, and in the meantime, it can affect your driving.

Decreased Visibility

Windshield ReplacementThe larger the crack in your glass, the more it will affect your ability to see the road, creating blind spots across your field of view. While most of the time you will be able to see around a small crack, it could be the crucial factor affecting your response time in an accident.

Worsens Over Time

Once a crack has begun in your windshield, it won’t stay small. The vibration of driving will make it expand, as will the freezing and thawing of water that seeps into the minuscule gap. For small cracks and chips, windshield repair may be effective, but the larger the crack becomes, the more likely you’ll need a full windshield replacement.

Not Safe to Drive

As cracks get larger, they begin to affect the stability and structure of the entire windshield. This means that as you drive, a badly cracked windshield could reach a critical stage and shatter at any moment. If this happens while you are on the road, you’ll have to cope with decreased visibility, and you’ll be a danger to other drivers on the road. It’s much better to avoid this risk by having the glass replaced promptly.
