Park In The Shade
Believe it or not, overexposing your windshield to direct sunlight can actually shorten its lifespan. That’s why our professionals always recommend that clients take proactive measures when it comes to expanding the life expectancy of their windshield.
Whether it be in the summer or the winter, we suggest that car owners park in the shade whenever possible. Seek shade near a building or an underground parking garage to spare your windshield from direct sunlight. The excessive heat produced from prolonged exposure of the sun can put unnecessary pressure on your windshield resulting in unsafe and unsightly cracks on your windshield.
If your windshield incurred stress breaks due to extreme temperatures, don’t wait for these to worsen. Book an auto glass repair or replacement with us today!
Change Your Windshield Wiper Blades
Did you know that a lot of the scratches on your windshield are actually a direct result of your dirty windshield wiper blades? As accessories on the exterior of your car, it is inevitable for them to not collect all any dirt and debris flying out and about while you’re on the roads.
What this means is that when you finally turn on your wipers on to clean your windshield, you’re in fact sending a mix of either rain or windshield wiper fluid and debris back and forth. With sand particles and possibly even rocks thrown into the mix, your windshield could easily become scratched and damaged as a result. That’s why we recommend replacing them every 6 months to a year (depending on useage) to help you better maintain your windshield.
