Windshield crack: from small chips to problems.

Having a few small chips in your windshield might not seem like a big deal. After all, they generally just sit there for months on end, staying the same size. And since they are so small,  they don’t mess up your line of sight or cause any other issues. However, there is an underlying problem in allowing cracks to remain in your windshield glass. Due to a number of factors, even the smallest crack can split and turn into a massive windshield crack.  Consequently ruining your windshield in a mere instant.

There are a few factors that can cause a severe windshield crack. Many of them are related to extreme temperatures ( winter and summer ) and other inclement weather.  As strong as windshields seem and are made to be, micro-chips and small “stress cracks” can seriously compromise the integrity of your glass.


Moisture is a major culprit, as it can seep into even the *tiniest* cracks. Therefore, once it freezes, it will expand and likely spread any small chip into a full-blown massive crack. 

Extreme Temperature

Similarly, atmospheric pressure and extreme temperatures can cause a strain on your auto glass, causing serious damage. Either if it is a few inches of snow adding extra weight, or high temperatures of glass from an extra hot summer day. These can all cause small chips to spread in mere seconds into a massive crack. Hence, leaving something once easily reparable can turn into a full-blown windshield replacement.
