A cracked windshield causes a lot more than aesthetic damage to your vehicle. This glass protects you from debris on the road and ensures adequate vision. If the structure is compromised, it can lead to serious issues. You should visit a service centre to deal with cracks quickly.
Here is how to care for your windshield.
Don’t park under trees or in direct sunlight
When you park under trees, you put your vehicle in the path of potentially loose branches that can fall and damage the windshield. On the other hand, staying in direct sunlight exposes the glass to extreme temperatures, which can cause stress cracks.
Don’t slam your doors
Slamming doors can cause vibrations that might damage your windshield and side windows. It won’t happen all at once, but the minor cracks will get deeper and longer over time, eventually leading to visible deterioration.
Replace your windshield wipers regularly
Windshield wipers have a metal structure coated with rubber. Over time, the soft outer layers wear out, exposing the hard element underneath. If you don’t replace them right away, they will scratch the glass.
