Auto Glass Replacement in Markham - Should I Replace My Windshield?
It’s not that uncommon for drivers to wonder if their windshield needs replacement. Some of the signs would be quite obvious, however, there are some signs that may not raise an alarm. To be 100% sure, count on a professional shop for glass replacement in Markham.
If you have a chip, crack, or discoloration, your windshield needs attention. The fact is, any type of window damage has the potential to distort your view of the road. In bad weather conditions it’s even worse. In some cases, repairs can be made and replacement can be avoided.
If you’re up for a vehicle safety inspection, even minor windshield damage could give you a failing grade. Clearly, it’s smarter to have the windshield repaired or replaced before the inspection date. This is particularly important when annual renewal stickers are involved.
From hail, to freezing rain, to rock salt, your windshield can take a beating in the winter. If there are noticeable chips or cracks, the integrity of your glass may be compromised. Here, it’s wise to consider immediate repairs, although full replacement may be the only option.
In high-traffic situations, window glass is vulnerable to flying debris, loose gravel, and even big rocks. This can cause “pitting” on the surface of your windshield. The small “pits” cause light to be scattered, which creates visual distraction during the hours of dusk and dawn.
White Hazy Edges
Vehicle windshields are treated with a special plastic coating to ensure occupant safety. If you see a white haze around the edge of your windshield, it’s a sign that something is not right. The best option is to check the windshield and identify the problem that needs a fix.
Unfortunately, drivers try to “make do” with a damaged windshield, and postpone repairs. Neglecting repairs can actually lead to additional damage and additional repair costs. For auto glass replacement in Markham, MRM Auto Glass recommends making repairs ASAP.
Can I Drive with a Broken Windscreen?
Choosing to drive with a broken windscreen is a personal decision. The bigger question is about safety. Depending on the overall damage, driving with a broken windscreen can be a distraction and a safety hazard at the same time. Truth is, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Driving with a broken windscreen can cause a small chip or crack to get bigger. Naturally, it means more repair work and more cost. Eventually, windscreen damage has to be repaired, or in a worst case, the window replaced. It’s much better not to ignore and not to postpone.
What Kind of Windshield Damage can be Repaired?
Depending on the shape, size, and scope of your windshield damage, there is a chance that the window can be effectively repaired. For auto glass replacement in Markham, MRM Auto Glass has technicians who will examine your damage and advise on repair or replacement.
The location of a windshield chip or crack is probably the most important factor in deciding between repair and replacement. To be sure, if the driver’s “primary viewing area” has been compromised by any window damage, then immediate repairs (or replacement) are a must.
Some window damage simply cannot be repaired, and therefore, complete replacement will be necessary. For example, damage that has penetrated the outside and inside of the glass cannot be repaired. Neither can a crack that is longer than 6 inches from a point of impact.
If you have discolouration of the plastic “interlayer” of the windshield, this can’t be repaired. As well, any damage that has a pit-size more than 3/8-inch cannot be effectively repaired. At MRM Auto Glass, our technicians will expertly judge between a repair and replacement.
