6 Signs You Need a New Windshield

Your windshield is more than a visual navigation tool; it’s also an essential safety component. Extreme temperatures, road bumps and debris all take a toll your windshield. For that reason, it’s better not to compromise your safety by driving around in a car with a damaged windshield. It’s important to understand that not all types of windshield damage can be successfully repaired. Here are some signs that indicate you need a windshield replacement.

Impaired Clarity

If your windshield is affecting your vision of the road, that’s the first sign you need to replace your windshield. Almost 46% of road accidents are due to sudden visual impairment.

Cracks on Your Windshield

When you’re on the road, you have a split-second to react to things. Cracks on your windshield may create a blind spot that could have devastating consequences.  

PVB is Worn Out

Modern windshields have a layer of PVB, which prevents the glass from shattering into shards. If you notice a white haze building around your windshield, have it replaced immediately. The white haze indicates that the PVB inside the windshield has deteriorated.

Car Safety Inspection

If your car is due for its safety inspection renewal and you have minor chips or scratches, your car may be deemed unsafe to drive.

Improper Repair or Installation

If you’ve had your windshield repaired, and feel as if the glass hasn’t been fixed, you may have no choice but to have it replaced. A compromised windshield can be very dangerous. What happens in the instance that your windshield is not installed appropriately? The uneven pressure can further make it susceptible to chips and cracks.

Pieces Are Breaking Off

If your windshield’s missing a piece or part, don’t try to fix it with duct tape. Have it replaced at once. The temporary fix won’t do, as the missing piece can’t be replaced by a substitute product that doesn’t match the structural requirement of the windshield.
