HOW YOU KNOW IT’S TIME TO REPLACE YOUR BOAT WINDSHIELD

When you’re behind the wheel of a car, it’s not a great idea to ignore a cracked or chipped windshield. But while it’s not necessarily the safest choice, most drivers can get away with putting off a windshield chip or small crack for a short period of time without any serious consequences.

But the same is hardly true for boat windshields. A boat’s windshield is subjected to a high amount of pressure, and serious breakage can be dangerous to you and your passengers. Postponing even minor boat windshield damage can put you at risk of spontaneous window bursting.

Don’t take a risk with your safety. Follow this guide for signs that your boat windshield needs repaired and then call the auto windshield repair technicians at Zenith Auto Glass in Duluth, MN.

Look for these signs that your boat windshield needs to be replaced:

●        Chips

●        Bulls-eye damage

●        Cracks

●        Edge damage

●        Combination glass damage

●        Recent frame replacement

●        Recent collision

DANGERS OF POSTPONING WINDSHIELD REPAIR

Boat windshield damage can occur in a number of ways. Boats are subjected to plenty of debris when traveling at high speeds on the water. And boat windshield damage can also occur while a boat is being transported to and from the lake, at the marina, or even at home if your boat is left out in the open.

Anytime you put off windshield repair whether for your car or boat, you’re taking a chance with the safety of anyone in its vicinity. This is because even minor chips or cracks can easily spread when exposed to the pressures of cruising at higher speeds.

As the damage becomes larger, the chance that your windshield could suddenly break or burst increases. And when a broken boat windshield falls apart, each piece of glass becomes a projectile that could harm you or anyone else in or near your boat.

And even if your windshield holds up, it’s unsafe to risk driving with your visibility impeded. For all of these reasons and more, it’s important to identify and repair any boat damage as soon as it appears.

WINDSHIELD REPAIR FOR BOAT RESTORATION

For vintage boat collectors, restoring a boat can be a passion project. If you’re in the process of restoring an older boat, it’s easy to overlook the windshield. But repairing the windshield is easy and affordable with professional windshield replacement from Zenith Auto Glass.

BENEFITS OF WINDSHIELD REPLACEMENT

At Zenith Auto Glass, our experienced boat windshield repair and replacement technicians can service a wide range of boat windows and windshields, including glass doors, glass hatches, custom glass designs, and portholes.

IS WINDSHIELD REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT NEEDED?

If your windshield damage is minimal and the windshield frame is in good condition, it may not need to be replaced. Our windshield repair technicians can perform a repair that restores the structural integrity of the windshield without removing the glass. However, if the windshield damage is more extensive, it may require a windshield replacement.

Follow these rules of thumb to determine if your windshield can be repaired:

●        A crack is shorter than a dollar bill length.

●        A crack does not touch the edge of the windshield.

●        The chip isn’t more than halfway through the windshield in depth.

●        The glass is laminated rather than tempered.
