No one is exempt from having chips or cracks appear in their windshield. Auto glass can become cracked or chipped from gravel spitting up from the road or some other object that comes flying our way. If the chip is smaller, you may be able to have it repaired. If the damage is more severe, auto glass replacement in Edmonds is the best option.
How Do I Know if My Windshield Needs Replacing?
There are certain things you can look for that tells you whether auto glass replacement is the best option. These include:
- How deep is it? Windshield glass has multilayers to it. If the chip or crack happens only on the top layer, it may be easy to fill. If the break has gone through several layers, replacement is required.
- Where is the damage located? If you have a crack that is off to the side or at the top, you might get away with a repair. But if it is in your line of sight, it affects your driving, and you need to have it replaced. If you get in an accident, the integrity of the structure could be compromised.
- How long is the crack? If it is longer then 5 to 6 inches long, again, the structure is compromised, and you consider a replacement.
These are a few reasons to consider auto glass replacement in Edmonds. If the crack is in front of your car’s sensors, those could be impacted too.
