A windshield replacement may be a bit of a hassle to deal with it but it should last for many years with proper care. Here are a few steps to help you extend the lifetime of your windshield.
You may want to inspect the windshield repair installation once it is complete and check for leaks and cracks. You may ask the replacement specialist to walk you through and explain what has been done.
It’s a good idea to wait a few hours after the installation before heading on the road. Some replacement procedures utilize urethane sealant which takes time to set. Wait a few days before taking your vehicle through the car wash and be extra careful in order to avoid putting any stress on the windshield.
You may also want to take steps to avoid cracks and the need for a windshield replacement in the future. Keep a distance from large trucks in front of you on the road, as these vehicles can hit small rocks and debris which in turn can hit your car. Keep your vehicle parked in a garage during storms and hail.
