Four Ways To Avoid Windshield Replacement

Harold Ross

Windshield replacement is definitely something that is necessary if you have any large cracks or chips that are disrupting your field of vision on the road. Driving with your windshield in this condition is also illegal and often results in a fix-it ticket or, in some cases, a fine. However, windshield replacement can be expensive. This is why it's important to avoid situations in which your windshield may become damaged. Here are four ways to avoid it:

  1. Don't Drive on Gravel Roads: If possible, try and avoid driving on gravel roads. If you must drive on a gravel road, be sure that you drive slowly to prevent kicking up as many rocks and other debris. You should also be sure that you stay a distance away from vehicles in front of you so that they don't kick up any debris that can land on your windshield. Take the same precautions when traveling on pavement that is under construction since the pavement is likely loose and will kick up debris, as well.
  2. Don't Drive Behind Construction Trucks: Any time you are behind a construction truck, it's best to keep your distance, as well as try to move into another lane if possible. This is because construction vehicles have likely been to multiple construction sites and have a great deal of debris stuck to their tires and on the top of their vehicles that can fly off. It's best to take precautions to ensure that no debris flying off these trucks damages your windshield. 
  3. Go to Professionals: Whenever you do have to get your windshield replaced, always be sure that you are going to certified professionals. This is because the windshields they have will be made of high quality materials that won't shatter easily. If you have a poorly constructed windshield, the chances of cracks is much more likely resulting in you having to replace the windshield much sooner than anticipated. 
  4. Avoid Extreme Temperature Changes: With extreme temperature changes, the glass expands and contracts, which can cause cracks. The best way to avoid extreme temperature changes is to park in the shade, as well as park in your insulated garage if possible. Be sure that the weather stripping on your garage door is always in good condition and replaced when necessary to keep your garage as insulated as possible. 

When you consider these four things, you can be sure that your windshield lasts you for a long time before ever needing to be replaced. Contact a business, such as Buy-Rite Auto Glass, for more information.
