Like many things in life, you just can’t predict when a crack or a chip in your windscreen is likely to happen. This means it’s an inevitable expense whenever it does occur. What’s worse, though, is discovering that your driver or passenger windows have been deliberately smashed in! Whether you live in Cape Town or are here for work or a vacation, you need a company that is a specialist in car window repair in Cape Town. Here at Auto Glass Cape Town, we get you back in the driving seat as soon as possible.
According to the organization Arrive Alive, you are legally allowed to drive a car if you can see the road with no obstructions in the glass. If, however, your view is obstructed by a chip or a crack, you need to be towed to a glass fitment centre to have it repaired or replaced. Once you are with us at Auto Glass Cape Town, we will assess the problem straight away so that we are able to determine what needs to be done in terms of repairs.
With a small chip, you can be back driving after a few minutes! If, however, there is more substantial damage to the windscreen, repairs will take a minimum of two hours as this requires a replacement windscreen.
What causes chips or cracks in windscreens?
Most often, a chip or crack in a windscreen is caused by an object hitting the glass. Often, another car will cause an object like a stone to fly into your windscreen. Here is a full and detailed list of things you can try to avoid to save your glass.
- Avoid driving on gravel roads. If you do drive on a gravel road, then make sure you keep really far back from the driving in front. By doing this, you avoid being hit by airborne rocks, stones and other debris that the car in front kicks up. Keeping a safe distance means that even if the car in front kicks up a rock, it will not hit your car.
- Avoid driving behind building and construction vehicles. These often carry materials and debris that might fall off and hit your car causing windscreen damage. If you find yourself driving behind a construction vehicle, keep a safe distance.
- Obviously, there are many reasons why you will want to avoid accidents aside from glass issues. However, avoiding an accident is difficult simply because they are really difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate. Things you can avoid, however, include being hit by balls or stones in the street where children are playing. It’s best to park away from popular areas for children’s play, a garage is your best option here.
- Avoid poor installation of windscreen and auto glass. Always go to a reputable company like Auto Glass Cape Town for your auto glass repairs in Cape Town. A poorly installed windscreen will become loose and will vibrate and move in strong winds or during fast acceleration. These vibrations and movements will eventually cause cracks in your windscreen. If this happens, the windscreen needs to be replaced without delay but ensure that you go to a reputable company.
- Avoid changes in pressure. Cracks caused by stress happen during abrupt changes in pressure. These occur from explosions, going at high speed or when an object is pressing on the windscreen for example.
If something does hit your windscreen, the place of impact often determines what happens to the windscreen. A crack doesn’t always appear large at first. In fact, it might begin as a tiny chip that starts to branch out. Here at Auto Glass Cape Town, we can repair chips and cracks on all types of windscreens. We can replace all windscreens too!
