Four Signs That You Need a Windshield Replacement

Four Signs That You Need a Windshield Replacement

You know that the windshield on your vehicle isn’t looking how it should be, but how can you know whether you truly need a windshield replacement? There are definite indications to look for that will tell you that you cannot repair your windshield, but that you will need to replace it. Four signs that point to windshield replacement are:

  1. White Haze – If you are starting to notice a white haze around the perimeter of your windshield, it is likely that you are going to want a windshield replacement for that window. The white haze is an indication of the PVB, or the plastic thin layer of your windshield that ensures that the glass breaks into small round pieces if the glass breaks, is failing. This is an important feature of your auto glass as it helps to protect you and your passengers in case of an automobile accident.
  2. Pitting – Pitting is when your window scatters reflected light which makes it difficult to see the road in front of you. Pitting is caused by small dings in the windshield that are usually scattered across the glass. Also, a pitting windshield won’t shed water very well.  
  3. Blocked View – If you have any chips or cracks that are blocking your view, it is very important for your safety to have a windshield replacement done.
  4. Missing Windshield – This may seem obvious but if you have a windshield that is missing, it is important to have your windshield replaced ASAP. Allowing your car to not have a windshield can shift the frame of the car and can make future replacement difficult. Clearly, driving without a windshield is a very bad idea!
