Windshield Cracks Should Be Fixed Before Hot Weather Hits

When your windshield is damaged, and sustains a crack, it is very important to get the crack filled. Not only does this prevent the crack from worsening, but it also gives you peace of mind about your windshield. Often times, however, people continue to drive and put off their windshield repair. With summer in full swing, you really should have the damage addressed sooner rather than later.

Higher temperatures make your windshield glass heat up, which cause the glass molecules to expand. When the glass molecules expand, the damage to your windshield also begins to expand. It is a gradual process, but over time the crack or chip will continue to grow due to expansion. Filling the crack before summer heat waves can help prevent this. If you wait too long, and allow the damage to linger throughout the summer months, the crack stands the chance of growing past the point of being eligible for repair. This is incredibly important to keep in mind, as a repair job is much cheaper than a full replacement.

If your windshield has sustained damage, but you aren’t able to get it fixed before a strong heat wave, do your best to keep it in the shade. Keeping the windshield out of the sun will help keep the crack from growing while you figure out what to do about the damage.

What Other Vehicles Can Wisconsin Windshield Centers Work On?

Wisconsin Windshield Centers provides windshield repair and replacements for more than just automobiles. We also work on larger specialty vehicles including mobile homes, tractor trailers, and buses.

Mobile homes have many sections of auto glass, all of which have the potential to break. They are also commonly used on very long trips, which increases the chances of breaking auto glass. Our auto glass repair technicians can service any area of a mobile home’s auto glass.

We also service windshield and auto glass repairs for tractor trailers. Like mobile homes, tractor trailers spend a lot of time on the road. Taking long trips on the highway leads to a high chance of auto glass damage. Our certified windshield repair technicians have the necessary training in order to repair these vehicles.

Another type of vehicle we do work on are buses. With dozens of windows and large windshields, buses have a good chance of suffering auto glass damage. Buses are also vulnerable to damage caused by vandalism. Our auto glass technicians can repair bus auto glass damage.
