With weather chill in the air, not only are we having to bundle up a bit more but we also need to be on the lookout for changes in the windshields of our car. Because changes in temperature can expand and contract your vehicles windshield, it’s important to look for small cracks that can travel the length of your auto glass.
For instance, if the inside of your car is around 60 degrees but the outside is in the 20s, the inside layor of the class will expland while the outside will contract, causing distortion and often cracked auto glass that is in need of windshield repair. Even a small difference in degrees can stress your auto windshield.
If you’ve had a small windshield crack after about a month or so you will notice it begins to get dirty. How do windshield cracks become dirty? Typically the windshield wipers push dirt into the crack over time or when it rains dirt can be carried into the auto glass crack. It’s important to have your vehicle looked at by an auto glass service company because preventative measures will take care of the crack before it spreads.
