Cold winter weather can be hard on our bodies…and it can be hard on our cars as well. Even the windshield can suffer from the effects of the cold winter weather. But, luckily, there are some easy ways to save your windshield and save the full cost of a replacement windshield.
1. Make sure that your windshield wipers are free from tears and are in good condition.
Windshield wipers are inexpensive to replace and can be easily changed out. Damaged or worn windshield wipers can easily scratch your windshield and lead to deep scratches that impair the driver’s view. Simply changing the windshield wipers can avoid a windshield replacement and keep your windshield looking like new for a longer period of time.
2. If you get a rock chip, get it fixed as soon as you possibly can.
A windshield repair is a inexpensive way to lengthen the lifespan of your windshield. It is an inexpensive and fast way to prevent a rock chip from running. With our cold weather temperatures we tend to use the defrosters and heat in our cars and when a windshield goes from cold temps to warm temps those small cracks can turn in to large ones in an instant. Get your windshield repaired as soon as you see a rock chip and you can avoid the costs of a whole new windshield.
3. Keep your windshield clean.
Dirt and debris can lead to scratches on your windshield. Always wash with a non-abrasive glass cleaner and a soft cloth. In the winter months avoid using extremely hot water as it can change the temperature of the windshield very fast which can lead to cracking if you have any rock chips that you may not have noticed.
