Seasonal Auto Glass Care

At Glass Inc. in Atlanta, GA, we understand that the changing seasons can present unique challenges for maintaining your auto glass. Each season brings its own set of environmental factors that can affect the integrity and functionality of your glass. This guide provides essential tips for seasonal auto glass care to ensure your vehicle remains safe and your visibility clear throughout the year.

Spring and Summer Care

Address Winter Damage

  • Inspect for Damage: Winter can be harsh on auto glass. Start the warmer months by inspecting your windshield for any chips or cracks that may have developed from thermal stress or road debris.
  • Repair Damages Promptly: Small chips and cracks can quickly worsen with spring rains and temperature fluctuations. Timely repairs by Glass Inc. can prevent the need for more costly replacements later.

Prepare for Summer Heat

  • Use Sunshades: Protect your vehicle’s interior and prevent the windshield glass from getting too hot, which can stress the glass and exacerbate any existing minor damage.
  • Maintain Wiper Blades: Replace any worn wiper blades to avoid scratches on the glass from grit and dirt that may have accumulated during the winter.

Fall and Winter Care

Regular Cleaning

  • Keep Glass Clean: Reduced daylight in fall and winter months can impair visibility. Keep your windshield and windows clean to maximize visibility and safety.
  • Check for Leaf Debris: Falling leaves can trap moisture against the glass, promoting mildew or obscure visibility.

Winterize Your Auto Glass

  • Apply Water-Repellant: A water-repellant can improve visibility in heavy rain and snow conditions.
  • Ensure Proper Seals: Check that window seals are intact to prevent cold air and moisture from entering your vehicle. Glass Inc. can replace any damaged seals or address leaks.

Year-Round Tips

Regular Inspections

  • Check Regularly: Perform regular inspections of your auto glass for any new damage or changes to existing imperfections.
