The longer you wait to get your cracked windshield fixed or replaced by an Auto Glass professional, the greater your chance is of having to endure some fairly severe consequences. Continue reading today’s article to find out what could go wrong with a cracked windshield and how it can affect you and/or your loved ones.
Small Issues Can Quickly Become Very Large Ones
Glass damage only gets worse with time and small chips and cracks should be repaired before they turn into big problems. Fixing small dings and chips in your windshield takes far less effort and will help reduce the chance that a small imperfection turns into a much more invasive issue.
Repair is MUCH Cheaper Than Replacement
Did you know that many insurance companies will waive your deductible for professional repairs of windshield damage? Chips, dings and even many cracks can be repaired to the point that they no longer pose a threat of spreading and resulting in a more expensive replacement. However, some insurers will set a cap on how much they will authorize payment for on repairs or replacement, so you are always better off using a certified windshield repair expert from Clear Quality Auto Glass to address the issue now, before it escalates and costs you more money than it really has to.
It’s a Liability
If you regularly have passengers in your vehicle or you allow other drivers to operate your vehicle, then you owe it to them to ensure that your auto is as safe as possible. Failing to properly address known structural issues with your vehicle could not only seriously injure yourself, friend and family, it can leave you open for liability if others are harmed in an accident and it is determined that you knew of the danger beforehand.
Most Importantly – Cracked Windshields Aren’t Safe
Structural damage to your windshield compromises its ability to protect you when you need it to shield you the most. If the windshield has cracks, the odds that the entire windshield will stay intact in a collision are not very good at all. Your best insurance in this area is to restore your windshield’s stability with a professional replacement.
