The most common cause of damage to your windshield is road debris such as rocks, gravel, or even pieces of metal that are picked up from a tire and strike your windshield. Weather such as high winds and extreme temperatures can also cause glass to crack or shatter. Car accidents are another common cause. Even a minor accident can result in chipped or shattered glass.
If you are involved in an accident, it’s important to have the damage assessed by a professional as soon as possible to determine if any repair or replacement is necessary.
