Are Your Wiper Blades Showing Signs Of Wear and Tear?

You may not notice until it’s raining that your wiper blades aren’t performing as well as they should be. Take notice if your wiper blades are squeaking, leaving moisture behind on the glass, or wearing unevenly.

When should I change my wiper blades?

It’s recommended to change your wiper blades every 6-12 months. You may wait longer or change them more often depending on weather, seasonal, and environmental conditions.

Signs Of Damage

Check for cracked rubber especially where the rubber meets the glass surface. If you see these signs of damage, it may be time to replace your wiper blades:

  • Cracked Rubber
  • Torn Rubber
  • Worn Rubber
  • Contaminated Rubber
  • Damaged Superstructure

Change Your Wiper Blades In Pairs

Even if only one wiper blade is causing the problem, it’s best to replace them in pairs. Not all wiper blades are created equal. Be sure to purchase the correct size and type of blade in addition to the brand.

How To Buy Wiper Blades

If this is your first time purchasing new wiper blades, consult your owner’s manual to ensure you know exactly the size you need for your car. Also look at your current pair of wiper blades to determine how they are connected. Hook-style connectors tend to be the most commonly found, but you may also find pins or pinch-tabs. Your local auto parts store should carry exactly what you need.

Windshield wiper blades are relatively inexpensive to replace and many opt to swap them out themselves. If you already get an oil change nearly every 6 months, you could also plan to buy new wipers at this time and have them installed. Don’t forget to check your back wiper blade every so often if you have one!

I recently brought my car in to have the broken passenger window replaced. The guys at Frank’s were very professional and the prices were good compared to other places. I’d recommend to anyone. Thanks guys!

Couldn't ask for a better establishment! I been driving around with a cracked windshield for longer than I should have. Finally had am off day and dropped them off my car. I was running late to pick up the car and they were very accommodating. Some places would make you wait until next day. Reasonable straightforward prices. They have gained a customer for life.

Frank’s was great. They didn’t have my windshield in stock and had to order one, but they were ready for me the next day. The work was completed very quickly, and the staff were all friendly. The price was fair. Would go back again if necessary!

I am extremely happy with the service I received from Frank's Auto Glass Repair. The replacement took a few hours because of the business' excellent service that it is first come first served. I have nothing but good things to say about this business. I pray I do not need another one anytime soon but I will definitely refer family and friends for premier services!
