Is It Time for A Full Windshield Replacement?

There are many causes of cracks, chips or in extreme cases, even a fully broken windshield on your vehicle.

Whether you witnessed the crack as it occurred or found your vehicle in a different condition than you left it, it is important to get your windshield repaired as soon as possible. The experts at All-West Glass can provide you with a new windshield. You should be driving with full visibility to stay safe on the road.


Why Is It Important to Replace a Cracked Windshield?

No matter the degree of the chip or crack, it is important to get your vehicle’s windshield repaired promptly. Not sure why? Here are a few reasons it is crucial to get your windshield replacement:



  • Weather: A crack or chip in your windshield opens up your vehicle and the surrounding glass in your windshield to dirt, debris, water and other elements. Discolouration from windshield washer fluid can occur and you may experience damage to the interior of your vehicle if left untreated.
  • Possible repairs: Sometimes you can avoid windshield replacement and just get a simple repair performed. If you wait too long, a crack could grow bigger and make repairs impossible. As the damage gets worse, your windshield becomes more difficult to see through and more challenging to fix. The glass damage won’t get better with time, so getting it looked at sooner rather than later is a smart decision.
  • Higher costs: The same principle applies to cost. If you wait longer, the windshield repairs or windshield replacement will likely cost you more. Save your money by getting your windshield fixed promptly.
  • Failed inspection: Windshield issues such as a chip or crack could lead to your vehicle failing an inspection. This could end up costing you in hefty fines or other legal repercussions. Don’t risk being in the wrong place at the wrong time with a damaged windshield.
  • Safety: It can be difficult to assess the severity of a crack or chip in your windshield. The structure of your windshield could be compromised, even if the damage doesn’t look too serious. The next small pebble that hits your windshield might cause shattering or a serious break in the glass.
