Typical reasons for windscreen replacement

If you drive a lot of miles or you’ve been driving for a long time, it’s a statistical probability your vehicle will have incurred a broken windscreen. They are imperative for obvious reasons, but when damaged, they can become an obstruction to safe driving. We’ve worked across Banbury, Birmingham, Bromsgrove, Coventry, Tamworth and Worcester, and have encountered all conceivable situations where a chipped or smashed windscreen can arise. Below we’ll discuss the most well-known and any preventative measures you can take to avoid a windscreen replacement.

Stones, pebbles and other projectiles

Even in perfect conditions, debris can strike your car at any moment. Tractors working during the summer harvest, birds migrating or insecure chippings from resurfaced roads can hit a windscreen. Admittedly, there isn’t a lot you can do to mitigate against these potential pitfalls other than maintaining your distance from the vehicle in front and always remaining observant of your surroundings.

Adverse weather conditions

If you live anywhere near Banbury, Birmingham, Bromsgrove, Coventry, Tamworth and Worcester, then you’ll know how unpredictable the weather can be. The aftermath of storms is one of our busiest times for windscreen replacement. To minimise the risk of damage, try to park your car somewhere covered and only go out if necessary.

Thermal shock

Any sudden fluctuations in temperature can create stress in a windscreen, causing it to crack. Using a kettle on a frozen car or turning the air conditioning to max cold in a hot interior can both cause damage.

Incorrect installation

One of the most frustrating reasons we see for cracked windscreens is poor quality installation. Any deviation from where the glass should sit can create stress cracks around the edges. To ensure the glass in your windscreen is fitted correctly, you should use a reputable firm like us. We provide affordable and competitive windscreen replacement across Banbury, Birmingham, Bromsgrove, Coventry, Tamworth and Worcester.
