Auto Glass and Windshield Repair Repair Tips

Rockwall Windshield Repair is pleased to provide the following helpful tip to answer your questions about automobile glass and windshield repair.

How a Small Crack in Your Windshield Spreads

Most people have had the experience of having a small stone hit their windshield and cause a small crack. Sometimes the crack remains tiny, but often times it spreads and becomes larger. When this happens, you may need to replace the entire windshield. Moisture is one of the biggest reasons that small windshield cracks get bigger. Even a tiny nick in the glass is enough for raindrops to get in and spread moisture all across the glass. This can cause buckling and even more cracks.

Damage caused by the sun and extreme temperatures are additional reasons that your windshield may eventually develop a crack spreading all the way across it. Cars that are parked in the sun all day are at risk because the heat increases the temperature across your windshield and causes the glass to crack. If the crack in your windshield is still small, you may be able to prevent further damage by parking your car in the shade or leaving it in your garage.

Extreme temperatures cause problems due to the difference in air temperature from the inside to the outside of the vehicle. This puts added pressure on a windshield that is already strained. Please contact the Rockwall Windshield Repair Company for additional help.
