Common Auto Glass Problems

Auto glass issues can range from minor annoyances to significant safety hazards. At Glass Inc. in Atlanta, GA, we encounter a variety of common auto glass problems that vehicle owners face. Understanding these issues can help you identify and address them before they worsen. This guide outlines the most frequent auto glass problems and explains how Glass Inc. provides effective solutions.

Frequent Auto Glass Issues

Chips and Cracks

Chips and cracks are among the most common auto glass problems. They can be caused by road debris, hail, or even temperature fluctuations. While chips are generally small, cracks can extend across your windshield if left unrepaired, potentially requiring a complete replacement.

Scratches

Scratches on auto glass can occur from improper cleaning techniques, abrasive dirt, or faulty windshield wipers. While they may not always impair vision, deep scratches can weaken the glass structure and compromise its integrity.

Leaks

Windshield leaks are less common but can be particularly troublesome. They often result from poor installation or seal failure, leading to water entering the vehicle. This can cause interior damage and encourage the growth of mold.

Pitting

Over time, small craters called pits can form on your windshield due to sand, dirt, or other particles striking the glass at high speeds. Pitting can reduce visibility, especially under direct sunlight or at night when oncoming headlights cause glaring.

Discoloration

Certain types of auto glass can become discolored due to prolonged exposure to UV light or due to defects in the glass itself. Discoloration can reduce visibility and the aesthetic appeal of your vehicle.

How Glass Inc. Addresses These Issues

Expert Repairs and Replacement

Glass Inc. offers both repair and replacement services for all types of auto glass problems. Our skilled technicians can determine the best course of action based on the severity and nature of the damage.

  1. Chips and Cracks:

    • Small chips and cracks can often be repaired quickly and cost-effectively. We use advanced resin injections that restore the integrity and clarity of the glass.
    • For larger or multiple cracks, a full windshield replacement may be necessary to ensure safety and compliance with traffic laws.
  2. Scratches:

    • While minor scratches can sometimes be polished out, deeper scratches might require the glass to be replaced to maintain safety and visibility.
  3. Leaks:

    • We assess the seal and frame condition around the glass to identify the source of leaks. Our team can reseal or replace the windshield to ensure it is watertight.
  4. Pitting:

    • If pitting significantly impairs visibility, replacing the windshield might be the recommended solution. We provide glass that can resist pitting under normal driving conditions.
  5. Discoloration:

    • For discolored glass, replacement is often the best option. We offer a range of high-quality glass options that include UV protection to prevent future discoloration.
