3 Things You Should Never Do to Your Auto Glass

After yesterday’s snowfall, was your car covered in snow and ice? Now that winter is here, we are all too familiar with shoveling to get our car out of its parking spot and scraping ice off the windshield. You may have heard the following tricks for removing ice and snow from your windshield, but take our word for it – do NOT try them!

  • DO NOT pour hot water on the windshield if ice has formed. If there are any underlying chips or cracks in the glass, the extreme temperature change can cause it to expand. Instead of using hot water, try to cover your windshield at night, or use a de-icing wiper fluid.
  • DO NOT scrape ice off the windshield with tools not designed for it (objects with sharp edges you may have lying around your car). These materials may scratch the windshield, which not only impairs your vision when driving, but will also require replacement. Be prepared! Have a proper scraping tool in your car at all times.
  • DO NOT wait to call for a repair! During the winter, moisture mixed with cold temperatures can make even the smallest chip or crack much worse, so be safe and repair your windshield while the damage is still minor.

I got my windshield replaced recently and it took less than an hour. Then as I was driving home the rear view mirror fell off. It kept doing it so I rode back and they replaced it. No haggling or anything. With this kind of service I will keep coming back. I am a repeat customer as they do not dissapoint!

Decent prices on the parts you need. Honest and informative workers. Reasonable and efficient service. They’re also pretty well stocked and will likely have the part you need for just about any replacement or repair. If not, they’ll order it for you and usually have it in a day or so. Overall, no real complaints on my end. I’d recommend this place.
