Delaying Windshield Replacements: The Consequences

Windshield cracks and chips are bothersome, yet it’s tempting to drive about with a damaged windshield. Many people who notice a crack in their vehicle’s windshield wait as long as possible before repairing it—many view it as a nuisance than a serious problem. But irritating as it is, the problem goes deeper.

Here are some of the reasons why you should bring your vehicle to AAR Auto Glass’s auto glass repair service as soon as possible if your windshield has a crack or chip:

1. Protection Against Collision

The windshield is an important safety barrier that prevents flying objects from impacting the car’s occupants. If your windshield is cracked, it has already served its purpose, and you shouldn’t put its remaining strength to the test. Instead, you should get that cracked windshield replaced so it can continue to protect you in the future.

2. Fracturing Further

Temperature changes can cause cracks in your windshield to widen and spread. What may seem like a little crack now might become a huge issue if delayed for too long when the windshield contracts and expands with the weather.

3. Damage To The Car’s Interior

If the windshield has cracks, the seal may be compromised; because of this, water may seep inside and cause damage to your car’s interior. In addition, due to increased exposure to ambient air, maintaining an adequate internal temperature also becomes more challenging.

4. Limitations On Full View

Even if your glasses are slightly foggy, you’d still get them fixed, right? So, even if the windshield cracks are just off to one side, they might obscure your vision. Because of this, driving with them might be hazardous because of your obstructed peripheral vision. Cracks are already annoying enough, but when sunlight reflects off them, it’s another level of discomfort.

Don’t risk an accident by putting off getting the windshield repaired. If you can’t get your car to a repair shop, that won’t be a problem anymore. We also offer mobile windshield replacement in Houston.

5. Problems With The Law

Any damaged windshield must be repaired following the legislation in several jurisdictions, including Texas law. As damaged glass lowers visibility and safety, it might lead you to fail inspections or even be pulled over.

Should I Get A New Windshield Or Get The Old Windshield Repaired?

Windshield replacement is advised if the damage is severe and can’t be fixed. However, it’s essential to have any damage checked out before it becomes worse and requires a complete replacement.

If the procedure is not carried out properly, it might lead to several unexpected complications. However, damaged or broken windshield replacement is a specialty of AAR Auto Glass, and we’re ready to assist you.
