Windshield repairs provide a reliable and cost-effective way to safely extend the life of your windshield. By repairing the chip or crack in your windshield, Adkins Glass can restore the structural integrity of the windshield and save you from a more costly windshield replacement.
Small chips and cracks in your windshield pose a safety risk and should be repaired as soon as they appear. The longer you wait, the more likely it is that the damaged area will spread. If left for too long, the damage will eventually ruin your windshield. In extreme cases, the windshield may even fall out completely! When your windshield is impacted by rocks and other road debris, a small bit of glass is lost from the damaged area creating a void in the glass. This void can be further expanded through the infiltration of water, changes in temperature, small bumps in the road, and time. The longer you live with your cracked or chipped windshield, the larger the damage will become.
Get to Know Your Windshield
The windshield in your vehicle does more than keep out wind and rain. It is the first line of defense against flying debris and is essential to the deployment of the passenger side airbag which can even save your life in the event of a rollover accident (learn more about windshield safety). Any damage or loss of integrity can cause the windshield to fail when it is needed most. The most common way a windshield's strength is compromised is by impacts from road debris. Chips and cracks in your windshield may appear insignificant, but that small amount of damage can spell disaster for your vehicle's windshield. During normal driving, small bumps in the road, tight turns, and other factors will cause your windshield to flex slightly. This very small flex will cause any damage on your windshield to expand from the stress. When the stress on damaged windshield is multiplied, it can cause the damaged windshield to fail which puts your safety at risk.
