When some form of damage appears, the first thing to do is to measure the breach. Smaller damages like chips, or any damage smaller than a quarter, or cracks that measure less than a foot, are less urgent, though precautions have to be taken, such as limiting the use of your car’s air conditioning or defroster before you can take your car to an auto glass repair center. Temperature changes can make the cracks expand, and get even worse.
Repairing minor windshield damage involves technicians applying polymer to the cracks or pits, then smoothing it over with tools to make it look brand new. For more serious damage, such as a direct hit which resulted in a hole or long cracks running through the glass, it’s time to visit a reliable Seattle windshield replacement service like Bullseye Auto Glass, without further delay.
