Chipped or Cracked Windshield? Don't Ignore the Damage

Driving down a highway, interstate, or even a quiet country road has its dangers. Flying debris, rocks and pebbles kicked up by vehicles in front of you can cause damage to your car and especially to the windshield. The glass on your car is the most vulnerable to damage, and the windshield takes a lot of punishment on a daily basis. When your windshield gets struck by a flying object and damage has occurred, the most important thing to remember is not to ignore the damage no matter how small.

By ignoring chips and cracks you risk causing greater damage to your windshield by allowing the damage to spread. Heat, cold, and bumps in the road can cause the crack to expand which may eventually require a full windshield replacement. The first thing you should do if you discover a flaw on your windshield is to have it looked at by an auto service professional. After an initial inspection, a professional will determine if the crack can get repaired or if you need to replace the entire glass. If you would like our dealership to take a look at your windshield, contact us at Tom Ahl Family of Dealerships in Lima, OH.
