One of the more common issues that are going to be able to be repaired involve rocks hitting your windshield and causing minor cracks. When you have a windshield that has one of these minor cracks you are going to want to act fast. Especially if you are hoping to fix the problem with a quick repair rather than a full replacement. We talk about rock chips because the most common cause for a chip or crack is, rocks hitting the windshield. If the chip on your car occurred in any other way you can still give us a call and we will be sure to find a way to help.
What Needs To Be Done In These Cases?
A lot of times people will have their windshield be hit by rocks as they are driving around they won’t even notice. A couple of hours later when they leave the vehicle they will see the impact and the damage that it has caused. In some cases, you can just leave things as they are, but you do run the risk of the crack expanding over a matter of minutes. We recommend that you give us a call once you notice and you have time to handle the situation. We will come to you so we adapt to your schedule not you to ours.
How Common Is This?
It is actually more common than a lot of people realize. Heck, if it wasn’t people like us would not be able to have a business. Who are we kidding here? That does not mean though that you should be going out on the streets in total panic mode all of the time. Although this is something that could happen any time anywhere, for the most part, the consequences don’t tend to be overly severe.
Can This Be Prevented?
Pretty much all of the people that we get a chance to work with want to know how they can be better prepared so that these things don’t happen again. To be honest virtually all of the replacements that we use are made with some of the most durable materials on the market. So we hope that this is an issue that is not plaguing people for a long time. We could say that the best way to prevent being hit by a rock would be to not go places where you will find a lot of rocks. At the end of the day, it is mostly about luck. We would not recommend that anyone change their driving style to avoid these issues.
Give Us A Call Sooner Rather Than Later
The best way to make sure that we will be able to have at least an opportunity to repair these types of issues is to give us a call as soon as you see these chips and scratches start to form. If the situation is not all that bad you are going to have more options to chose from.
