Spring has finally sprung here in Colorado! While many residents are enjoying the longer days and warmer weather, there’s still the potential for some serious snowstorms to hit. If you’ve lived along the Front Range for the last decade, you know that spring is when we get some of our harshest weather. With the “Bomb Cyclone” that hit Denver recently, that is a sure sign there is more inclement weather ahead.
Today, the Denver Mobile Auto Glass team will share a few springtime auto glass care tips with you to help prevent windshield damage from occurring. Is your vehicle ready for a repair or replacement? Don’t spend hours searching “auto glass Denver” when your Top Rated Local® windshield replacement experts are just a call away.
Handy Springtime Auto Glass Care Tips
Don’t Park Under Trees
If you there’s bad weather on the way, avoid parking under trees and low-hanging foliage that could damage your auto glass. Those heavy, wet snowstorms we get in March, April, and sometimes May, can snap even the heaviest branches. The last thing you want is to have your car parked in the pathway of a falling branch.
Don’t Put Away Your Ice Scraper
While these warmer days can make it seem like the snow is gone, don’t be deceived by the Colorado sunshine. Chances are, you’ll put away your ice scraper for the next six months, and then one of those crazy storms will hit while you’re at work, and you won’t have anything to clear the snow and ice away except your poor, cold hand.
Repair Rock Chips Immediately
If you’ve been putting off those rock chip repairs, now’s the time to address them. You see, with the roller coaster temperatures that are characteristic of springtime in Colorado, the rapid changes can worsen existing auto glass damage. That tiny miniscule chip is suddenly a giant crack stretching across the length of your windshield.
Use Good Wipers
Between the snow and the rain that Colorado gets during spring, you want to make sure you have good wiper blades to keep your windshield clear. Replace wiper blades that have fallen apart and keep your wiper blades functioning properly by wiping them down with a cloth and rubbing alcohol or glass cleaner.
Keep Your Wiper Fluid Topped Off
Don’t get caught in a springtime snowstorm without windshield wiper fluid. Top your wiper fluid off weekly to ensure you’re always fully stocked.
Get A Windshield Replacement
If your windshield, side windows, or rear windscreen are damaged beyond the point of repair, continuing to drive with severely damaged auto glass is dangerous — to you, your passengers, and other drivers. If your windshield is riddled with spidering cracks that make nearly impossible to see as you drive, it’s time for new auto glass. Our technicians have the skill, top-notch equipment, and high-quality materials to install a fresh, new windshield on your vehicle.
