Happy Holidays From Aspen Auto Glass!
Our team here at Aspen Auto Glass wants to wish you and your family a Happy Holidays and an abundant New Year. As a local auto glass shop in Canmore, we value each and every one of our customers. We thank you for your continued support and for trusting us with something as important as your vehicle’s windshield and auto glass.
With the holiday season upon us, roads are busier than ever with Christmas shoppers, tourists, and people commuting to and from holiday parties. Kicked-up gravel and salt on icy roads are the most common cause of windshield chips and cracks this time of year. Now is a great time to remind our readers of windshield safety.
Why you need a strong windshield
Windshields play a crucial role in your vehicle’s structural integrity. They not only give you a clear view of the road but also provide protection during a collision and help keep the cabin’s roof from collapsing during a rollover. Any damage to the windshield compromises its strength, increasing the risk of the glass shattering during an accident and causing serious injuries to you and your passengers.
Unfortunately, windshield damage can’t be avoided completely, but there are ways to prevent cracks and chips. Here are some simple tips to help you avoid windshield damage:
- Avoid extreme temperature fluctuations by giving yourself enough time to warm up your car.
- Never pour hot water on your car’s windshield, regardless of the trends you see on social media.
- Avoid driving close behind large trucks on the highway.
- Park underground or in a garage whenever possible.
- Have cracks and chips repaired as soon as possible before they spread.
