Your windshield is likely something you take for granted until driving becomes unbearable. As winter quickly approaches, the local experts at Van Go Auto Glass have a few tips to help you handle your auto glass needs with confidence in harsh Colorado conditions!

  1. Check your insurance policy. If you have comprehensive coverage, then auto glass repairs will not drive up your premium! In the state of Colorado, you can receive a ticket for a crack across your windshield that may impede your sight. Keep yourself safe and insured by electing glass coverage on your plan!

  2. Inspect your windshield. Any chips or cracking in your auto glass need to be filled sooner rather than later. As cold fronts come in, so does exposure to excessive moisture. Freezing temperatures cause moisture in cracks to freeze and expand, causing even the smallest cracks to grow in a very short period of time.

  3. Block excessive moisture. To help block excessive moisture exposure, carry clear tape to patch chips on the windshield until you can schedule an appointment for repairs. Also, avoid washing your car before your auto glass appointment.

  4. Consider working with a local auto glass expert. Your auto insurance company may not refer you to a local shop. Working with a local shop such as Van Go Auto Glass, you can count on personalized service! The experts at Van Go pay attention to the details, and will go the extra mile for you. Need a ride to work while your windshield is being repaired? No problem!

  5. Save time by having your information ready. Grab your VIN number, then give us a call! This helps to quickly find the right parts for your specific vehicle. For example, there are 17 different types of windshields associated with the Jeep Compass!
