Stay Safe This Winter by Caring for Your Windshield

If you can’t see clearly, you can’t drive safely. You may be glad that summer’s finally over, since you can stop cleaning dead bugs off your windshield, but winter presents its own challenges for visibility on the road.

Don’t let the upcoming seasonal weather stop you. You can stay safe on the road by following these tips for caring for your windshield in the winter.

Should You Repair or Replace Your Windshield?

When your windshield is in good condition, you likely don’t think about it often. After all, the purpose of the glass is to give you an unobstructed view of the road and drivers around you while protecting you from the elements.

However, as soon as your windshield sustains a chip or crack, you may find yourself thinking about it constantly as you drive. You may wonder if the glass is still safe and structurally sound, whether the damage will interfere with your driving habits, and if the issue can be repaired.

Modern windshield repair can return many damaged windshields to smooth, clear surfaces. However, not all windshields can be repaired. In this blog, we discuss some of the characteristics that determine whether your windshield needs to be repaired or replaced.

The Hidden Benefits of Storm Windows

Many people, even those in older homes, do not have storm windows inside or outside their home. If you don’t live in an area that is at risk for very bad storms, you might wonder if you even need them at all. However, there are some excellent benefits that come from storm windows outside of basic glass protection in the event of a storm with hail and high winds. 

5 Steps to Take after a Window Breaks

The windows in your home can let in natural light and give you access to beautiful views of your property. However, when the glass breaks, the window immediately becomes a hazard rather an asset.

Knowing what to do in this situation is vital. The choices you make right after a window breaks will determine the extent of the damage, whether or not injuries are sustained, and in some cases how easy and cost-effective the replacement is to handle.

Here are the first five steps to take when a window breaks in your home.

4 Glass Updates to Make Before Selling Your Home

Glass Updates For Your HomeIf you’re thinking of selling your home in the next few years, you might consider investing in renovations. Renovating your home can increase its likelihood to sell, and can even get you a higher sales price.

On average, 75% to 85% of what you spend on renovations will come right back to you through an increase in your home’s value. Your return can be even greater depending on your location, the current housing market, and the type of renovations you invest in. Plus, if you don’t plan to move quite yet, you can enjoy the renovations yourself in the meantime.

People often focus on basic renovations like walls and carpets. However, there is also enormous potential to improve your home with glass features. These features not only impress buyers with their beauty, but they can also save buyers money by protecting other features of the home. Here are a few examples of ways you can modernize your home with glass.

What Our Clients Say

Hidden Gem

I had 2 windshields replaced on my previous car at a different glass company. I went back there and got an estimate for this windshield but thought I would get a second estimate from Central Glass. I am sure glad as it saved me over $140. This is now my glass company of choice.
