One of the most important parts on a vehicle, and one that many people don’t appreciate enough, is the windshield. It’s your first line of defense against the elements, crashes and accidents, as well as debris being kicked up while on the road. It's important to make sure that it stays in the best possible condition, and that’s where our mechanics at McGee Toyota of Dudley come in! Continue reading to learn more!
How to Know if You Need to Repair or Replace Your Windshield
In many cases, you can simply repair your windshield and be done with it. This is often the case when it’s superficial damage, like a small chip or crack that can be easily mended. In other, more extreme, cases a full replacement could be required. This is done when a windshield’s integrity looks to be failing and as such poses a risk of completely shattering while on the road, leaving you without protection.
One of the signs you should get your windshield looked at is if you notice that there’s a crack or chip in it. A tiny crack or a small chip might seem like it’s not a big deal, but over time they could become bigger and develop into a real problem. They could have weakened the windshield's integrity enough that it eventually breaks and a simple repair becomes a complete replacement, costing you a lot more time and money. That’s why we recommend bringing your vehicle to our service center and having us inspect it right away if you notice a chip or crack!
