Summer Driving Hazards: When To Get Your Windshield Fixed

As we all know, summer comes fast with rising temperatures and hotter car interiors can lead to some issues. From new road construction to increased travel, your car can go through unexpected wear and tear. Here are some things that can lead to unpredicted auto glass damage. If you need glass window repair near Chicago, make sure you visit Frank’s Auto Glass.


Summer construction not only causes traffic delays but can also damage your windshield. Loose debris can be launched off of a freshly torn up roadway and crack your windows and windshield. Road construction sites can also lead to more hazardous driving conditions, so in order to avoid these hazards, be sure to reduce your speed around heavy road construction.

Increased Road Travel

Increased road travel can lead to a mass surge of traffic, especially in large metropolitan areas. The increased traffic can lead to road deterioration, which can loosen pavement. As mentioned from construction hazards, loosened pavement can become airborne, hitting your car when you least expect it. When you are driving faster than usual on a highway, even small pebbles that hit your windshield can cause damage.


Any type of impact to your windshield or windows can cause cracking. Make sure that this summer in Chicago, you are staying up to date with the rapid change in temperatures. Quick weather changes from cold to extreme heat can cause cracking that need repairs. If you notice cracks, don’t hesitate to call a glass window repair near Chicago.

If you have any questions or concerns about your windows or windshields contact Frank’s Auto Glass at (773) 488-7700 or visit our website. We are happy to help you repair your windshields so you can go off on your summer road trips without a concern!

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!
