Why you should bring your car in immediately after noticing a crack or chip in your windshield
When you first notice a crack or chip in your windshield you should immediately bring it in for one of our auto glass specialists to take a look at it. When a windshield first develops a crack, it is important to get it repaired immediately if possible, if you leave a crack for a prolonged period of time, the vibrations from regular road driving will cause the crack to lengthen. If a crack lengthens beyond a certain length it becomes impossible to repair and will result in a full auto glass replacement which is much more costly than a regular windshield repair.
Did You Know That Driving with a Cracked Windshield Is Dangerous
Driving with a windshield that is cracked or broken can be very hazardous. The front windshield is designed to enhance the structural integrity of your car so that it is better able to withstand vehicle accidents and rollovers. A cracked windshield adversely affects the strength of your vehicle during collisions which can result in injuries that are more severe and life-threatening. We highly advise that you do not drive your vehicle long distances if you have a major crack or chip. If possible, bring your vehicle into your local Carglass1 auto glass center and our technicians will be more than happy to inspect it for you for free. In addition, if you bring your vehicle into Carglass1 as soon as you discover a chip in your auto glass, your chances of preventing that chip from spreading significantly increases, saving you more money.
Why you should hire a San Diego auto glass company to help you with your windshield replacement or repair instead of doing it yourself
It is strongly recommended that you visit a Carglass1 Windshield Replacement San Diego, CA center or technician if you have a crack in your windshield rather than trying to repair it yourself. There are a variety of different windshield repair kits available that you can purchase online or in a store. However, before you go out and buy these windshield repair kits there are several things that you should know about them. First, the polymer that is used in most common store bought windshield repair kits is a watered down version of the commercial grade polymer that is typically used by auto glass professionals. This lower grade polymer means that your windshield has a higher chance of cracking again if you repair it using a repair kit. Whereas here at Carglass1, we use a specialized industrial polymer that is specially designed to withstand significantly higher levels of auto glass stress. Along with the strengthened repair polymer, our specialized windshield repair process ensures that you get a clean and superior repair that will last significantly longer than any store bought repair kit. Many of our clients have reported that when they attempted to repair a windshield using a store bought repair kit, the glue would wear off and begin cracking within 2-5 months depending on the weather. Meanwhile, our industrial strength sealant is designed to last for the entire life of the car.
The most important thing to remember is not to wait too long after discovering a chip or crack in your auto glass
If you discover a chip or crack in your auto glass the most important thing that you should remember is that you need to get it repaired as soon as possible. The longer you wait to get a chip or crack repaired in your windshield the more time you are allowing the crack to become longer and larger. The longer a crack becomes the more increasingly difficult it is to fully repair, and at a certain point if the crack becomes too long it becomes impossible to repair. If a crack becomes so long that it is impossible to repair then you will have to get a full auto glass replacement. The cost between a car glass repair and a full front windshield replacement is often several hundred dollars depending on the make and model of the vehicle. So, to save money it is highly important that you immediately address any cracks or chips in your auto glass as soon as you discover them. We are open 7 days a week, if you have a crack or chip and you aren’t sure if its able to be repaired, bring it into the Carglass1 Auto glass center of san diego.
