Most people in Chicago rarely think about their vehicle’s glass needs unless there’s a problem. However, your car or truck has a windshield, back shield and windows, which could all start causing you problems later in the vehicle’s life. Have you ever driven down the road and heard a rock or similar debris hit the windshield? While it may not have done damage, this time, another rock or item of debris may do so later, especially if you live or drive in areas that frequently have debris.
Chip or Crack
When a rock does chip or crack the windshield or other glass components of your vehicle, you may ignore it (or be unaware of it). However, even a tiny chip that you barely notice could get bigger and bigger over time. A small chip or crack can be easily remedied, but when it gets too large, a full replacement is necessary.
Most body shops can repair or replace windshields and windows with cracks or chips, so it makes sense to do it as soon as you notice the problem.
Because the chip may be small, you should consider visually checking each window after every trip to ensure that everything is still okay.
Most body shops can also help you with lock and window problems. For most people living in Chicago, a locking door is a necessity to ensure that your property and vehicle remain safe and sound.
A window that won’t roll up (or down) could be problematic, as well. For one thing, a window that is permanently in the down position means that the inside of your car is at risk for weather damage. In winter, you’ll be cold, even if you put a piece of plastic over the hole. In summer, you’ll be hot and won’t get good gas mileage because the wind will slow you down. Plus, it would be easier for a would-be thief to get inside the car.
Most auto body shops understand that you lead a busy life. You may work early in the morning until late at night, which leaves little time to get to the shop and get the repairs your vehicle needs. Therefore, most body shops will come to you for repairs, whether it be at work or your home. Plus, you’ll be safer because it’s not a good idea to drive when you have compromised windows or windshields.
