What size windshield crack can be repaired?
Many windshield cracks can be repaired quite successfully. However, every repair depends on a number of factors – depth, size, and location. At MRM Auto Glass, one of our window glass specialists will assess your windshield damage and then recommend whether it can be successfully repaired.
Generally, windshield cracks of a couple inches in length can be effectively repaired – the maximum would be about three inches in length. Today, with the newest technology, MRM can also repair bigger cracks. One of our in-house technicians will determine the success potential of your specific repair.
Is a cracked windshield dangerous?
It’s not necessarily dangerous to drive with a cracked windshield. However, a cracked windshield should be repaired as soon as possible. In many cases, a cracked windshield decreases a driver’s view and that’s simply unsafe. More than that, immediate repairs will prevent additional vehicle damage.
The fact is, even a small crack in a windshield can compromise the structural integrity of glass – and this lessens the intended protection. When a windshield crack is large, or quite close to the edge, it’s possible that complete replacement may be needed. An experienced technician can diagnose this.
Can you stop a windshield crack from spreading?
A windshield crack can easily block your view and compromise driving safety. Worse, it can quickly spread and cause more damage. Yes – there are ways to stop a windshield crack from spreading. But the bigger question is why not fix it properly – with professional window glass repair or replacement.
It’s possible that a DIY approach could temporarily stop a crack from spreading. But eventually, the window glass will have to be properly repaired. In severe weather (or in a car wash) many DIY options will fail. The best approach with windshield damage is professional repair or complete replacement.
Can heat cause a windshield to crack?
While waiting for an appointment to repair a windshield crack, the windshield should be protected from the sun and extreme heat. Heat can actually cause glass to expand and cause the crack to spread. To protect the windshield, it’s best not to let the heater blow on the windshield, and obviously avoid going into a car wash with extremely hot water. As well, it’s better to park in the shade when it’s sunny.
Why do windshields crack?
Automotive glass is fragile – and window glass does break. The most obvious cause for a windshield crack is impact – like a flying stone, rock, or some debris. However, there are also “stress cracks” which appear for no reason and without any area of impact. Whatever the damage, it’s key to have windshield repair addressed immediately, and it’s far better to have the work done professionally by the experts.
