They offer newer model courtesy cars and vans for their clients... and they will also pick up your vehicle, take it to your SGI appointment for you, and deliver the courtesy car to you at home. In their latest Saskatoon Autobody and Collision Repair Tips article, they discuss the benefits of replacing your cracked windshield this fall, particularly before the cold temperatures hit.
Auto glass repairs on your vehicle such as windshield replacements can provide peace of mind to drivers particularly before those cold winter months hit. Investing in quality windshield repair is crucial in ensuring the structural integrity of your vehicle, and ultimately the safety of the driver and passengers.
The windshield of your vehicle is essential for both driver and passenger safety, which is always a priority. When you have a cracked windshield, the integrity of your vehicle is compromised and can create unsafe driving conditions. When your windshield is damaged there is a higher likelihood of the glass breaking should you find yourself in a collision or a situation where an object was to come in contact with your vehicle.
In the event of a rollover, a windshield can account for up to 30 percent of roof support. Therefore, a damaged windshield can compromise the roof of your vehicle and there is a higher likelihood that the roof may cave in, impacting the safety of the driver and passengers.
Simply put, a chipped or cracked windshield impairs the driver’s ability to view the road ahead. Replacing your windshield eliminates obstructions due to cracks and chips, particularly if they are in your line of sight, and reduces the potential for accidents to occur.
DAMAGED WINDSHIELDS AND COLD WEATHER
If there are any existing damages to your windshield, extremely cold temperatures can negatively impact these damages further. Glass expands and contracts due to weather changes, as most materials do. Cold weather will cause your windshield to contract, and as a result, it will become more concave in shape. This is a stressful change for your windshield, and can result in cracks, chips, and may worsen other issues due to shifting. Many drivers find that as soon as cold temperatures hit, they find minor windshield cracks grow. That is why it is so important to replace or repair your windshield as soon as possible when you notice a crack. If you put windshield repair off for too long, a full replacement becomes your only option.
The main concern, particularly in inclement weather, is a windshield losing its seal. When glass loses its seal, chips and cracks allow air and water to enter your vehicle. During those cold days, it is especially important to keep heat in the vehicle. Replacing your windshield ensures the cold air stays out, and the hot air stays in.
Overall, it is essential to make sure your windshield damages are remedied before cold temperatures strike. Your windshield is an important part of your vehicle’s structural integrity.
