Windshield & Auto Glass Repair
Windshield repair is challenging because shatterproof, tempered or laminated automotive glass is incredibly unique. A windshield must curve to the structure of the vehicle’s frame and get accurately installed to provide protection during a crash. For expert glass windshield repair, schedule an appointment at your nearest NAPA Auto Care center.
Signs You Need Windshield Repair or Replacement:
- Is the lack of visibility from your scratched and chipped windshield becoming a safety concern? An older deteriorated windshield with several small chips can impair your view or is even possibly illegal to operate.
- Is there a large chip in your line of sight? Chipped glass can contract and expand as sunlight or freezing temperatures hit the exterior of a windshield. A chip can expand into a long crack that heavily impacts the integrity of your glass.
- Is the windshield crack larger than the size of a dollar bill? DIY glass repair kits are only designed to ‘fix’ minor damage. To prevent a crack from becoming a safety hazard, it is important to get professional windshield glass replacement.
- Is there a hole in the windshield or a large spiderweb of cracks? Replacement is critical to prevent glass shattering into flying shards when hit by a stone or stick while driving.
You need a front windshield that is strong enough to withstand sharp flying debris kicked up from the road, but also sleek and smooth so that mechanical wipers can easily clean it and deliver a clear line of sight. That is why auto glass repair or cracked windshield repair is a common vehicle maintenance investment.
