The Importance of a Windshield
Did you know that in most average-sized vehicles a windshield will make up to 30 percent of your vehicle’s strength? This shows, in real terms, just how important the windshield is to your vehicle’s overall functionality. A windshield is also much more than a front-facing window. In most modern vehicles your windshield and passenger side airbag work together to keep you protected in the event of a crash or sudden stop. If your windshield’s integrity is compromised even slightly then it could affect the safety of you and your family. Don’t take this risk. Contact Jim D's Body Shop today and let us get your windshield back to its factory best.
What Causes Windshield Damage?
The range of different factors that can lead to your windshield chipping or cracking is quite broad. That being said, sudden and stark temperature changes are certainly a windshield’s worst enemy. Unfortunately, the changeable climate that we have in Dowagiac means that such fluctuations are a very real and common problem. While most people feel that the Dowagiac winter, with regular snowstorms and sub-zero conditions, would be the worst time of year, the opposite is actually the case. During the humid summers that we have in Dowagiac, even the temperature variation between day and night can be enough to cause minor cracks to your front shield. If left unrepaired, this crack can turn into something much more serious. It is important that you have your windshield repaired at the first sign of an issue.
