Trenton, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/01/2019 -- When drivers experience uncontrollable chips and cracks on their windshield, they turn to ABS Auto Glass for windshield repair services in Princeton, NJ. While windshield damages often show up without any warning, it is imperative that drivers monitor weather conditions leading up to their repair appointment.

Excessive changes in temperature can have significant effects on a windshield. When glass is exposed to extremely hot temperatures, it expands. On the contrary, when it is cooled down, it contracts. When a windshield struggles between two competing temperatures, it experiences an intense amount of pressure, which can cause existing cracks and chips to expand. Drivers should take caution after noticing visible cracks and chips and should avoid using hot temperatures to defrost a cold windshield. This forceful change in temperature is one of the leading causes of expanding windshield cracks.

When a crack or chip becomes visible to the driver, seeking repair services should be a top priority. If a crack is left alone for too long, it can bare the effects of moisture buildup. Moisture that enters the glass through a crack or chip can freeze in cold temperatures. Once the moisture freezes, it can put pressure on the existing crack and cause it to expand. Driver's should contact ABS Auto Glass for emergency services to take care of a damaged windshield right away. Cracks that are left unrepaired can spread further and require total replacement, which can lead to higher expenses.
