Do I have to fix a scratch on my windows or windshield?
It’s very important to fix any flaws on your auto glass because of the pivotal role it plays in the safety of your vehicle. Your windshield isn’t just glass for you to see out of while driving, it provides support for the roof of your car! Also, scratches can affect your visibility during your commute.
You should fix any flaws in your windshield, windows, or other auto glass on your vehicle to keep you and your passengers safe.
How can I fix a light scratch on my auto glass?
A light scratch can often just be polished away. This can completely remove a scratch or make it nearly invisible. All you have to do is use a special polish, mix it with water, and apply it to the scratch. You can buy a kit for this from an auto parts store.
If you find the scratch was worse than you thought after attempting to polish, give us a call to get your windshield replaced and safe again. Don’t forget – replacement is covered by auto insurance most of the time!
