No matter how careful you are, you may not be able to keep your car windows flawless forever. Cracks can happen in a variety of ways on and off the roadway. Here are a few of the most common ways for car windows to break.
An impact does not necessarily have to directly contact the car windows in order to break them. If enough force is involved from close enough, a window may crack or break completely.
Dirt roads are often involved in this type of car window breakage, but you can also get a cracked car window from driving on a paved road. This is especially true if construction vehicles are on the roadway, because they may track rocks from off-road areas onto the blacktop.
Windows can also break because of poor-quality construction, bad installation, or sun exposure. Weak areas within the glass, road vibration, and uneven temperature changes are common causes of breakage due to these issues.
The smallest breaks in car windows can sometimes be repaired, but replacement is often necessary when window damage happens. You can contact our auto glass repair company to learn more about how auto glass replacement can become necessary.
