Fall is officially here, and you know what that means—colder weather is right around the corner! Did you know that chilly temperatures can have an effect on your auto glass? Fall is the perfect time to educate yourself on the ways you can avoid a glass repair in the coming months. Let’s take a closer look.
Replace Your Wipers
If your windshield wipers are damaged, cracked, look worn or leave streaks across your windshield when you use them, it’s best to replace them as soon as possible. They can scratch up your windshield if you aren’t careful! This can lead to an avoidable repair or even full windshield replacement if they do enough damage.
Clear Off Your Windshield
Falling leaves and debris will no doubt clutter your windshield at some point this fall. It’s best to park in an enclosed space, like your garage, when possible. However, when you have to park out in the open, it’s important to clear the leaves, twigs and debris off of your windshield before driving. This is especially important if it’s raining, as debris can get caught in your windshield wipers and damage your windshield.
Repair Cracks As Soon As Possible
If you notice a small crack in your windshield, it’s best to go ahead and get your windshield repaired or replaced before the crack has the chance to spread. As temperatures drop and it becomes colder outside, freezing temps can put stress on the cracks that are already present on your windshield. Play it safe and take care of the cracks as soon as you can.
