The Twin Cities has accumulated more than five feet of snow this winter. This means the plows have been doing overtime on the highways and city streets. Has your windshield been the victim of an errant rock or other debris flying off the back of a plow? It’s important to get your windshield repaired promptly. Here’s why.
The longer you wait to get your windshield repaired, the worse the damage gets, especially in winter. Cold weather can cause chips and cracks to expand and shatter. If your windshield is damaged sometime between November and March, give mobile glass repair company Glass Source a call as soon as you can. Our team can replace your chipped or cracked windshield even when it’s freezing outside.
Replacing a Windshield in Cold Weather
Replacing a windshield in freezing temperatures requires an experienced installer who understands how cold affects adhesives. Most adhesives take longer to cure in cooler weather. For this reason, your Glass Source mobile windshield installer may use a fast-acting adhesive in the winter, or ask that you wait a little longer to drive your vehicle so the adhesive has a chance to cure. However, you don’t have to worry about whether or not the adhesive will take. Glass Source uses a product that works as low as 0 degrees Fahrenheit, something our competitors cannot provide.
What to Expect at Your Mobile Windshield Replacement Appointment
At Glass Source, cold temperatures don’t prevent us from fixing your chipped or cracked windshield. To keep temperatures warm, we may ask to work on your vehicle in your garage or in the parking ramp at work. If needed, we will use your vehicle’s heater to keep the windshield warm.
Cold temperatures aren’t a reason to delay getting your windshield replaced. Schedule your mobile windshield replacement appointment with Glass Source today.
