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.

Auto Glass Cleaning Tips

With spring upon us, this is a great time to get your car washed to get rid of the winter grime. When you clean your car, you should pay special attention to your auto glass.

  • Put your car outside to clean it, or if you are in a garage open your windows so that you are not breathing in any fumes.
  • Find a glass cleaner that does not contain alcohol or ammonia. These chemicals can damage the tint on your auto glass. Also, cleaners with these chemicals can be damaging to leather and interior fabrics. When you use the cleaner on the inside of your car windows, you want a cleaner that can drip off them without damaging your interior.
  • Find a glass-cleaning, microfiber towel. These types of towels do not leave streaks easily, and do not scratch the auto glass.
  • Use long strokes to reduce the chance of leaving any streaks.
  • If you are cleaning your car outside, try to stay out of direct sunlight. This can cause your glass to dry faster than you are cleaning it. You might end up leaving stains where the cleaner dries.

 

Six Spring Driving Tips

Every season brings their own unique challenges for the driver. In the spring season, rains and the thawing winter make driving slippery and dangerous. Follow these tips to be ready for spring driving:

  • Potholes can be found everywhere in March and April after winter starts to let up. In early spring, this is especially a danger when municipalities have not fixed many of the potholes yet. Keep an eye out for potholes and watch for cars ahead of you driving outside of their lane; they could be avoiding a pothole you can’t see yet.
  • Spring rains combined with melting snow causes serious flooding and slippery roads. Reduced handling and slower brake time causes many accidents in slippery conditions.
  • Misty and foggy conditions are also common during the spring. Drive slower in these conditions because visibility is reduced.
  • Be wary of animal crossings in woodsy areas. Animal life usually begins stirring awake in the spring, and many wild animals are on the move in this season. If you see any deer crossing signs, heed the warning and keep your eyes peeled.
  • Windshield wipers often get damaged in the winter. Check their conditions and replace them if they have taken a bruising over the winter. With upcoming rains, you will want to have them in good condition.
  • If you live in a city or busy suburban area, be aware that nice weather is going to bring out bicycles, skateboards, motorcycles, and other recreational vehicles. While melting snow opens up the roads, you are going to have to share them!

As we enjoy the warming temperatures and begin to roll our windows down, don’t forget that slippery conditions and winter wear gives the spring time its own unique driving challenges.
