Some signs that you need auto glass replacement in Markham
Whether you drive a car or truck, your window glass needs to be secure, reliable, and defect-free. Even the slightest defect can compromise the integrity of the window itself. And while the highest priority is the front windshield, all of your window glass should be kept in good shape and free of any defects.
If your driver’s view is blocked
Even those smallish chips, cracks or discolorations can block your view. The safest approach is to have a completely clear window, particularly the windshield – no flaws, no blemishes, no imperfections.
With an upcoming inspection
If you’re up for any type of vehicle safety inspection, you will fail the test with chips, cracks, or other damage to your window glass. Damage to the front windshield will bring special attention to the test.
Winter induced glass damage
In winter, your window glass can be damaged by ice, hail and salt – not to mention stones and gravel. In fact, extreme temperature fluctuations in winter can cause even small chips and cracks to widen.
White haze around your glass
If you notice some white haze around the edge of your front windshield, it’s a sign that the lamination material is compromised. It may seem harmless, but an auto glass professional should check it out.
How much will it cost to replace my windshield?
Basically, windshield replacement cost will depend on the type of vehicle involved. While window damage does not always require complete replacement, it’s still best to get a professional assessment and reliable estimate. At General Auto Glass, this can all be done online at your personal convenience.

Should I repair or replace my windshield?
The good news with small chips or cracks is that they can be effectively repaired. If the damage is in the driver’s sightline, it’s wise to replace the windshield completely. If the damage is apparent at the edge of a windshield, this too is a sign that the windshield should be replaced (by a professional).
By any definition, it’s important to repair cracks and chips before they grow – this will avoid the need to replace completely. For auto glass repair in Scarborough and throughout the GTA, General Auto Glass can assess your damage and determine if the windshield can be repaired or must be replaced.
Are cracked windshields dangerous?
A small windshield crack is not particularly dangerous. However, as a rule, damaged windshield glass should be repaired immediately. A cracked windshield will likely decrease the driver’s visibility and compromise driving safety. To prevent more extensive damage, it’s better to make immediate repairs.
A small crack or chip in a windshield can actually compromise the structural integrity of your window glass. In most cases, when a crack is long, or if the damage is close to the windshield edge, then full windshield replacement may be necessary – an experienced window glass technician can diagnose.
Can water get through a cracked windshield?
Whether it’s a fierce rainstorm or a car wash, there’s a chance that water will seep through a cracked windshield – or not. It’s also not uncommon for a crack to get bigger after a car wash. This is because of the high-pressure water, the heat, and even the vibration from the brushes. Water seepage is possible.
As for the interior of the vehicle, it’s unlikely that water will get through a windshield in that volume. The thing is – why worry about water seepage or driving visibility or additional damage when there’s an option to have the windshield inspected and assessed. There may even be an option to repair!
The benefits of replacing your windshield
In some cases, a cracked or chipped windshield can be successfully repaired. When this isn’t possible, professional replacement is the best option – this ensures the integrity of the windshield as intended.
- expert windshield replacement ensures safety
- a brand new windshield allows for clear visibility
