Why You Should Fix Your Windshield Before Winter

It’s never a good idea to drive around with a crack in your windshield, but it’s even riskier during a typical Midwestern winter. There are all sorts of extra hazards including reduced visibility due to shorter days, snow, ice, sleet, and fogging of the windshield. There are some other reasons as well.

  • A Crack in Your Windshield Will Always Get Worse – The heat on the inside of the car reacts with the ice and cold on the outside to create a temperature differential, and therefore more stress on the crack. Freezing temperatures always make your windshield more vulnerable to cracking.
  • Cracked Windshields Don’t Hold Up Well During Any Type of Impact – With snow covered roads, you are more at risk for getting into an accident. Your windshield provides structural integrity when it is intact, often preventing serious injury in a rollover, and stopping occupants from being ejected in other types of accidents. It is also designed to transfer energy down to the chassis on impact, which it can’t do if it breaks due to a crack.
  • Airbags May Not Deploy Properly – When the airbags deploy, if they push outside of the vehicle because the glass fractures prematurely due to a crack, they don’t offer the same amount of protection as they normally would.

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!
