“Recently, Joanna’s windshield was cracked by a rock on Oracle Road. At first, she left it alone, but then it started spreading.
“It spread slowly, and then would go quickly. So it wasn’t all at once.”
Quickly due to the increasing temperatures! The folks of Northwest Auto Glass say that it’s crucial to fix those windshield cracks as soon as possible during the summer, which is their busy time of year.
“During the summertime, glass when it’s hot… it’s softer,” said Matt Gipson, owner of Northwest Auto Glass. “So it becomes easier to break, so even the littlest pebble will break it.”
Matt also told News 4 Tucson that the state of Arizona insurance regulations say that if a crack is larger than 6 inches, then the full windshield does need to be replaced.”

The risk one takes when delaying a small crack or chip repair in their windshield is that it might spread. In that case, it’s often that a full windshield replacement is necessary.
