If Your Windshield Can’t Stand the Heat, Bring it in For a Repair

If you already have a crack or chip in your windshield, the hot sun of summer won’t do it any favors. In fact, if you don’t have the chip repaired quickly, the sun and heat can increase its size and expand it beyond repair.

Contrary to what some may believe, heat and sunlight will not cause damage to your auto glass, but rather increases existing damage to glass. If your vehicle has been parked outside in the hot sun for days and you find a new crack on the windshield, it’s because there was already minor damage that was invisible before. This can also happen when there is a dramatic and sudden change in the temperature of the glass, so don’t blast your car’s A/C system as soon as you get inside on a hot day.

The best way to make sure your windshield remains in good condition through the summer is to check frequently for existing damage, especially after long road trips and when a rock hits the glass. If you find even minor chips or cracks, it is best to have them addressed right away, before they get worse. Small repairs can be done rather quickly and inexpensively, while extensive damage will result in your vehicle spending more time in the shop and more money out of your pocket.

When you first notice a crack, contact Frank’s Auto Glass – we have fast, professional service for all types of auto glass repair.

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!
