4 Winter Windshield Care Tips

The last place you want to be standing in below freezing weather is on the side of the road with a cracked or chipped windshield that could have been prevented. That’s why it’s imperative to check your car’s auto glass (windshield, back glass and windows) before the snow starts to fall.

Here are four windshield care and repair tips to help you stay safe and warm in chilly conditions:

  • Keep an ice scraper and pair of gloves in your vehicle. Before you drive, be sure to remove enough ice or snow to ensure visibility through the windshield, back glass, and side windows before setting out on the roads.
  • Leave your windshield wipers in the out and up position when you park. DO NOT attempt to use them to wipe the ice and frost from the windshield before manually scraping it. This will damage the wipers.
  • Consider getting a full car cover or a windshield snow cover. This will prevent frost and snow from accumulating on the windshield overnight.
  • Check your wipers to make sure they are working efficiently. Don’t wait until the snow hits and you have to drive in poor visibility.

REMEMBER: Winter windshield care is essential to keeping your car in good shape and getting where you want to go safely, no matter the weather.


Save Money With Proactive Auto Glass Repairs

Headed into winter with chips and cracks on your windshield, windows or mirrors? Many auto glass professionals advise against this risky decision. This is because a chip is 60% more likely to crack in below-freezing weather and 80% more likely to spread than in warm driving conditions.

That being said, it is ALWAYS cheaper and easier to have any cracks and chips in your windshield repaired before the problem gets worse. Otherwise, you may just end up paying more for an entire windshield replacement.

3 Tips To Keep Your Window From Chipping This Winter

Winter comes with sudden fluctuations in temperature, which can greatly increase the risk of damage to your windshield and other auto-glass parts. To prevent any emergency windshield/mirror repairs or installations, follow these three tips:

  • Allow the windshield to warm up gradually by using the defroster on a lower level of heat for a longer period of time.
  • NEVER pour boiling water on your windshield, thinking it will defrost faster. This will cause damage to the glass.
  • Most importantly, repair any windshield chips or cracks prior to driving through harsh winter conditions.
