No one plans for a crack in their windshield. Instead, you’re trying to finally end your busy day by running through a drive-through for dinner and pull back onto the highway when CRACK! Gravel from a passing dump truck falls onto your car and you’re left with a huge crack and even more stress. If you chose the right windshield repair shop, your day doesn’t have to end in disaster.
While it may be tempting to go ahead and continue driving with a cracked windshield, this is extremely unsafe. You are certainly busy and have a lot in your life already, but broken glass is not just a cosmetic issue. It’s crucial to take the time to get it repaired, as soon as possible. The windshield plays an important role in a car’s safety restraint system, keeping passengers inside during a collision and debris out. Just like your windshield crack was a surprise, a collision won’t be planned either.
If your windshield damage is less than one inch in diameter and not directly in the driver's line of sight, you are lucky and it can be repaired with no problem. However, if the cracking process is not stopped soon, that small crack will expand and a full windshield replacement becomes the only option. To find out if your damaged windshield can get repaired instead of having to replace it completely, contact North Coast Auto Glass today. We’re Oceanside’s most-trusted windshield crack repair shop.
