The Importance of Windscreen Maintenance in the Summer Season

DC Auto Glass is looking forward to Christmas and the end of the year, and is grateful for the year we have had.

As we welcome a hot, dry summer this December and bid farewell to 2023, it’s a crucial time to ensure our vehicles are in top-notch condition for the sunny road trips ahead. One aspect that often gets overlooked is windscreen maintenance.

At DC Auto Glass, we understand the role a clear, undamaged windscreen plays not only in your vehicle’s aesthetics but also, more importantly, in your safety.

Why Is Windscreen Maintenance Important?

Your car’s windscreen does more than just provide a view of the road. It’s an integral part of your vehicle’s structural strength, contributing to its overall durability. In addition, it plays a critical role in the deployment of airbags during unforeseen incidents, protecting passengers from getting ejected from the vehicle.

During the summer season, your windscreen is exposed to intense heat and sunlight, which can exacerbate any existing damage or cause new issues to arise. Small cracks can quickly spread across the entire windscreen due to thermal expansion, impairing your vision and compromising your safety.

Summer Windscreen Maintenance Tips

Here are some tips to keep your windscreen in prime condition during the summer:

Regular Inspection:

Regularly inspect your windscreen for any signs of damage, such as chips, cracks, or scratches. These can expand with the summer heat, so it’s best to get them repaired immediately.

Use a Sunshade: A sunshade can protect your windscreen from direct sunlight, reducing the risk of thermal expansion and subsequent damage.

Avoid Sudden Temperature Changes: Don’t pour cold water on a hot windscreen to clean it. The sudden temperature change can cause the glass to crack.

Professional Repair and Replacement: If you notice a chip or crack, contact DC Autoglass for professional repair or replacement. Our trained technicians use high-quality materials and state-of-the-art techniques to ensure your windscreen is safe and secure.
