We hand select each piece of auto glass that we use on our auto glass repair jobs. The choice of auto glass is very important. If you have ever read one of our other articles you probably already know about pressure cracks. If you have not read about pressure cracks, they are cracks that come from poor quality auto glass. These cracks normally start as almost invisible nicks in the corners or the auto glass. Once the auto glass is installed these large cracks usually form within a few days. Some auto glass companies will not replace the auto glass even though there was a default in the auto glass that was installed. That is why the auto glass that an auto glass repair company chooses is so crucial.
Stress cracks do happen but they are not the most common reason people need an auto glass repair company. The most common cause for chipped or cracked auto glass is a break-in or debris on roadways coming into contact with your auto glass. The fall and winter months in Seattle are great times of the year. However the months of October through January have the highest auto break-in rates. You should try to make sure that you keep a clean car with nothing left on the seats or floorboards. Most times thieves will look in the windows of a vehicle to see if there is anything they can see of potential value. Even if you have something like a jacket obstructing the view of the seat or floorboard this may leave a potential thief to question whether or not there is something of value underneath the jacket. Keeping a clean car will help you deter thieves from breaking your auto glass. Another thing most people will commonly overlook that will increase the odds of a break-in is a navigation device su h as a Garmin. Many people will leave such devices on the dash of their car which is an invitation for thieves. Simply taking a few moments to place your Garmin or other navigation device in your glove box will keep it out of site and save you money on replacement costs as well as keep your auto glass in tact.
The other way you are most likely to get a crack or a chip in your windshield is from road debris. This typically happens when a small rock is flipped up into your windshield from a vehicle in front of you. Larger trucks including dump trucks are the most likely to pick up a rock that is large enough to chip or crack your windshield. The tire tread on these vehicles is a much larger tread that is able to pick up larger rocks. There are a couple of things you can do to reduce the chances of having debris from the road come into contact with your auto glass. The first thing you can do is keep a safe distance from larger trucks. Staying distance away from these trucks will allow most rocks to not come in contact with your windshield. You can also choose to not drive behind these vehicles if you are on a double lane road.
