Can My Windshield be Repaired in Extreme Temps?
Heavy snow, and or low temperatures, can also lead to higher amounts of broken glass—and that may include a chip or crack in your windshield. So how do you make sure a technician does the job right in extreme winter weather conditions?
Take it Inside
If an auto glass company has a shop location, they will likely have you come to the shop for the repair or replacement. Some companies may even pick up the vehicle and deliver back to the customer at no charge if it’s not too far from their shop.
Repairs Done Outside
If your technician tells you it’s safe to repair or replace your glass in extreme cold, don’t worry. The Auto Glass Safety Council says replacements can be done in extreme temperatures, as long as the tech uses a urethane rated for the appropriate minimum drive away time. “Mobile work can be conducted safely in temperatures down to zero degrees Fahrenheit,” says one safety expert. Just make sure your technician follows the written procedures for cold weather installations, paying special attention to the curing time. Be sure to ask your technician when it is safe to drive your vehicle.

How to Ensure a Quality Repair
Your windshield is classified as a “safety device” because it provides structural strength to the body of your vehicle and supports inflation and performance of passenger side airbags. This being said, it is vital to ensure a grade A repair is made when having your windshield replaced. The quality and proper installation of the auto glass adhesive is equally as important as the quality of the windshield.
When Should I Replace My Windshield?
The moment you see any sort of damage to your windshield, such as from a recent hail storm, you should schedule an appointment with your local body shop to have the glass replaced or, at the very least, repaired. A small crack or chip may seem innocuous at first, but these can grow or, as it’s commonly called, “spider web” over time. The larger cracks that can form if the glass isn’t taken care of quickly have the potential to become not only a danger to you but your passengers as well.
You may not realize it, but the windshield of your car is actually a very important safety feature; it is actually labeled as a “safety device.” The windshield assists your car in maintaining its structure. For example, if your car were to flip over in an accident, the windshield would keep the roof from caving in on you.
It also supports the performance of your car’s passenger-side airbags. This is why you should never hesitate to schedule an appointment with a mechanic if you discover that you have any chips or cracks in the windshield of your car.
Windshield Replacement or Repair: What Does My Car Need?
Glass Doctor can repair most chipped windshields. Chips that are over one inch (25 mm) in diameter usually require windshield replacement to protect the structural integrity of the glass and the safety of the car’s occupants. A windshield replacement is also most likely needed if a damaged area obstructs the driver’s view.
When deciding if you need to have your windshield repaired or replaced, consider these three factors:
- Size—There are a few exceptions, but chips larger than one inch in diameter may require windshield replacement.
- Location—Cracks that run all the way to the edge of the windshield typically require replacement, due to their tendency to spread. Chips or cracks directly in the driver’s line of vision require replacement as well.
- Timespan—The longer you leave chips unaddressed, the more likely dirt will build up. Dirt accumulation inside a chip makes it difficult to perform a successful repair and makes windshield replacement the better option.
Of course, a member of our team will provide our professional recommendation during your free consultation.
