Environmental conditions have their own way of playing havoc with your vehicle. When that havoc results in damaged window panels, you have to get off the road to deal with the problem. A CBC News report from New Brunswick dated January 7, 2015 reported about some ice that was jolted off a truck, and hit a car trailing behind.
It may not be too farfetched to imagine that a similar occurrence could happen in places like Kelowna, B.C. Temperature lows in the Okanagan Valley during the first quarter of the year dip to at least five degrees below zero Celsius, with snow a regular occurrence, but the potential for ice buildup remains. When your vehicle is struck by any flying objects, be it a solid thing like ice or even a rock, professionals at auto glass in Kelowna such as Enterprise Glass Ltd, are ready to solve that issue for you.
Letting your preferred auto glass repair expert look over the damage, may aid in determining whether a simple repair job or a full windshield replacement in Kelowna is needed. The CBC News article’s main picture showed a man’s car while he was driving outside Moncton. The picture showed the damage having a large detailed spider web of cracks rippling out to the driver’s side of the windshield, but the ice didn’t punch through. Some cracks were also present on the other sections of the windshield.
Insurance is never far behind when your windshield’s been damaged. Many comprehensive and collision coverage policies account for them in a claim. Your preferred auto glass repair professional may aid you in filing a claim with your insurer.
Mobile support may prove critical in windshield snow breakage situations. Some professional auto glass repair shops have emergency service crews that can be called in for help. You should furnish them your contact details, information on make and model, and your immediate location to have a service standing by.
Damage brought to a windshield by “natural missiles” like ice blocks may be all but rare. Still, when driver visibility is compromised, you cannot let that slide. Call on an auto glass repair/replacement company like Enterprise Glass Ltd. today.
