Windshield Repair and Replacement in Mississauga, ON
Your vehicle's windshield is among the most important safety structures in your car. Driving with a chipped or cracked windshield may put you and your passengers at risk for injury in the event of a collision or rollover. While chips and cracks may seem like only a nuisance, the truth is any damage to your windshield must be repaired when possible so that the structural integrity of your vehicle stays intact. Schedule a service appointment with Erin Mills Acura to help identify if your windshield needs to be repaired or replaced. In the meantime, here are some signs that can help you determine if you need a windshield repair or replacement:
- Obstruction of view. Cracks that resemble a spider web can distort your vision, particularly in severe weather conditions. Your ability to drive safely depends on the ability to drive with an unobstructed view.
- Evidence of pitting. Flying debris, including small sharp rocks, can form small pits in your windshield. These small pits reflect light, making it problematic for the driver to see clearly.
- A white haze at the edges of the glass. If you spot a white haze around the edges of the windshield this may indicate the plastic is starting to detach from the glass. This plastic ensures the windshield shatters as designed to minimize injury in the event of a collision.
- Any part of your windshield is missing. Do not tape or tarp any part of your windshield. If you elect to drive without replacement you can risk your safety and potentially cause glass alignment issues in the future during replacement.
