Windshield Crack Safety Tips

It can happen to any of us, at any time while on the road. A branch clips your windshield, debris flies up from the street, or a gravel road gets the best of your car. Even if the crack in your windshield starts off small, it can continue to grow as outdoor conditions fluctuate or external pressure is put on the windshield. If you don’t have time to look into Chicago auto glass repairs just yet, remember these windshield crack safety tips.

Avoid Extreme Temperatures

Extremely high and low temperatures can jeopardize auto glass, potentially exacerbating structural damage to already cracked windshields. To avoid this, park your car in a garage during the cold winter months and avoid letting your car bake in the sun over summer.

DIY is Not Recommended

When you’re considering Chicago auto glass repairs, don’t attempt to fix the crack on your own. More often than not, those who attempt to fill in the crack themselves end up causing more damage. Make sure you seek help from an auto glass professional to fix the crack.

The Sooner the Better

Time is of the essence with windshield cracks. The sooner you can get into a shop for Chicago auto glass repairs, the better. The crack will have less time to spread and you can get back to driving as you usually would.

Keep in mind that a fast response is likely to mean lower repair costs. Contact Frank’s Auto Glass today to learn more about the repair process and cost.

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!
