Automobiles have been around and evolved over a number of centuries. Cars are now becoming technology nests. Back-up screens make parallel parking a breeze, built-in navigation systems help us get from point A to point B and some vehicles even come equipped with WiFi, OnStar and television screens.
However, as safe as manufacturers continue to make automobiles throughout the years, there’s one feature that we tend to overlook: the windshield!
Although the windshield has also evolved over the years, it’s still one of the most fragile pieces that go into making a car. According to Angie’s List, “The windshield is part of the structural integrity of the vehicle, and protects occupants during an accident, especially a rollover accident”. https://www.angieslist.com/articles/why-replacing-cracked-windshield-important.htm
So why aren’t windshields replaced or fixed when a minor chip or crack happens? For starters, the price may be a little too hefty for an unexpected expense. For two, many drivers believe a little chip or crack can’t do much harm and they couldn’t be any more wrong. Letting an auto glass expert at least check out the minor damage done can save you a good chunk of change in the future. Cal Star auto glass experts in West Covina advise drivers to get that chip or small crack fixed ASAP before it spreads. The bigger the crack, the bigger the bill.
