Tips for maintaining your auto glass
“Clean the Glass Thoroughly
The build-up of dirt or bugs on your windshield is going to affect the clarity of vision you have when on the road. To ensure that your glass is thoroughly cleaned, you need to buff it using the microfiber cloth.
Park in the Shade
Your auto glass can be damaged if it is exposed to too much sunlight. If possible, you need to park your vehicle in as much shade as possible. This is especially important if you live somewhere with extremely hot weather. If it is not always possible to park in the shade, then you can get a car cover so that your glass is protected from constant sun exposure.

In order to limit the potential damage of your windshield due to rock chips, you should always maintain a safe following distance. Large commercial vehicles can kick up dirt, rocks and other debris many feet in the air so allowing for as much space between you and the vehicle ahead is crucial. As stated above, don’t delay getting cracks repaired as the damage will surely worsen quickly over time.
