I have a crack or ding in my windshield- is it really important that I fix it right away?
Yes! It's important for two reasons:
A. If the ding is small it may be repairable. That means Mikes Auto Glass can "mend" the break without replacing your entire windshield. Repairing your windshield typically takes less than 30 minutes.
Best of all, in most cases, your insurance company will waive the deductible on repair service, so it's free to you! But the longer you let the damage remain without having it fixed, the more dirt and debris will collect in the break; and the more the break will spread. If it gets too big, it's very likely that a replacement will be necessary.
B. The second reason to have a damaged windshield fixed is for your own safety. The windshield is more than just a "shield" from wind and road dirt, it's an important structural element of your car. It helps keep you and your passengers in the car in a front impact accident, and keeps your car's airbag in the optimum position so it can function as designed. If your windshield is weakened due to damage, it could be dangerous to you and your passengers in the event of an accident. Also, damaged glass may cause optical impediments when driving, particularly at night, which is a significant safety hazard.
