Driving with a broken windshield is extremely dangerous. Not only does it obstruct your view of the road, but the glass may also shatter if you hit a large bump or pothole.
If you are like most people, you may want to put off calling for car window repair Burlington VT; however, this isn’t a smart move. Keep reading to find out why calling for repairs right away is so important.
Cold Weather Makes the Cracks Worse
You may not thing a small chip in your windshield is that big of a deal until you come outside to discover your windshield is covered in a sheet of ice. You may try to pour hot or boiling water on the windshield to melt the ice, but this isn’t a good idea. This sudden change in temperature can cause the materials inside the glass to expand quickly, causing a break or chip to get much bigger.
It’s Impossible to Fix Long Cracks
If you wait too long and a small break or chip gets longer, you may not be able to repair the windshield. A simple test you can use to determine if your windshield is fixable is to hold a dollar bill next to the crack. The bill is just over six inches long. If the crack is longer than this, repair isn’t possible. At this point, replacement is the only option you have.
Since cracks get worse quickly and for several reasons, you need to act as soon as the problem occurs. The longer you wait, the more your options are going to diminish until a replacement is the only choice left.
It is best to work with the professionals for windshield repair. They will be able to take the right steps to ensure your glass is fixed and that no other issues will arise.
