Windshield Repair & Replacement in Brampton, ON

Windshield and automotive glass damage is a serious safety issue that should be addressed by a professional. Fortunately, the team here at Attrell Toyota can help drivers with windshield repair and replacement, depending on the severity of the damage. Below, we’ve put together all the information drivers need to know about

Should I Drive With a Damaged Windshield?

Drivers should get windshield damage addressed as soon as possible, as it will only worsen with time. Because vehicles vibrate as they move, any cracks or chips in the windows or windshield will spread over time. In severe cases, damage that could have been easily repaired may require a full windshield replacement if left unrepaired.






Does My Windshield Need to Be Replaced?

When assessing windshield damage, a service technician will be able to tell you whether the windshield can be repaired or if a complete replacement of the glass pane is required. While windshield damage can vary greatly in size and shape, these are some common rules of thumb to help drivers determine when a complete replacement is required:

  • The crack is located in one of the four corners, compromising structural integrity
  • The crack is too large to be repaired
  • The crack is too deep to be repaired
  • The crack, even if repaired, would severely hinder visibility



Tips for Protecting Your Windshield From Damage

Wondering how to prevent damage to your windshield? There are several safety tips you can follow to mitigate the risk of windshield chips and cracks, such as:

  • Avoid parking underneath trees
  • Maintain a proper following distance from the vehicle ahead of you
  • Replace worn-out windshield wipers
  • Avoid gravel roads
  • Drive defensively
  • Park in an enclosed space, such as a garage
