Reasons why a windshield can get chipped or damaged
Your windshield is an integral part of your car and one of it’s most vulnerable parts. It can get cracked or chipped, it can be get scratched and occasionally it can also get out of shape. There are many reasons why something like this can occur.
Windshields are nowadays manufactured with a layer of vinyl on them. When a stone dinges or chips them, then you do not really need to go in for a replacement job. You can apply a resin on them, which will adhere to the glass and repair it.
Weather can play havoc with your windshield. Storms frequently crack the glass and in areas where storms are a commonplace occurrence, windshield repair or replacement is also a common occurrence! Hailstorms can also cause considerable damage to your windshield. Large hailstones can chip your windshield in various places. Hot weather can warp your windshield, and the AC inside the car can also cause it to change shape to a small extent. During cold weather a chip in the glass can get converted into a crack.
Take care of the chip on your glass as soon as possible before it becomes worse and needs a full replacement.
