Common Causes of Windshield Damage


A crack, chip, or break in your car windshield isn't the most visually appealing thing, but it can also be a real danger to you and your passengers. A tiny nick in the glass can quickly stretch into a long crack and weaken the structural integrity of the entire windshield. Here are 7 of the most common causes of damage requiring windshield replacement in Kent, WA.


The first cause of windshield damage that typically comes to mind is an auto accident. The windshield is often one of the first things to go, even in fairly minor accidents. And accidents include more than unfortunate incidents on the road. You may not even be in your car when your windshield is damaged; the accident may happen when you are in a store or when your car is parked in your driveway as a child's baseball comes down in the wrong place.

Changes in Temperature

Extremes in temperature can be very hard on your windshield, especially if changes happen suddenly and frequently. Rapid changes weaken the windshield and may cause cracks as the glass expands and contracts. Harsh winters and intense sunlight are especially problematic. Where possible, use covered parking and other protective measures to keep your car from unnecessary exposure to the elements.


Hail isn't terribly common in most areas of the country, but if and when it hits, it is a major threat to your windshield. If you are on the road when it starts to hail, slow down to decrease the force at which the ice hits your windshield. If the storm becomes more intense or the size of the hail starts to worry you, pull over and wait it out inside your vehicle. Find a covered area to park your car, if possible.


A windshield that is installed incorrectly will likely be too loose and leave space for the glass to vibrate when you drive at high speeds or when the wind pushes against your car. This vibration will eventually cause cracking and other damage.


Changes in pressure put a lot of strain on your windshield. This pressure may be the result of high speeds or nearby explosions.

Rocky Roads

Gravel is made up of hundreds of thousands of little rocks, each of which can create big problems for your windshield. Even on a paved road, there will almost certainly be pieces of gravel scattered around. The best thing you can do to protect yourself is to stay observant, obey signs and speed limits, and slow down if you see an area with a lot of gravel on the road.


Like bits of gravel, other kinds of debris can also do serious damage to your windshield and the people in your vehicle. Objects may fall or blow directly onto you car or be kicked up by tires. In many cases, the most dangerous debris comes from other vehicles on the road in front of you. Construction vehicles, for example, often have unsecured tools and rocks on them that may find their way into your car. Leave a safe distance between your vehicles to minimize your risk.

You should also be diligent in watching for natural debris, such as falling rocks, and other hazards when driving through canyons and less developed areas. One of the deadliest (and heaviest) of these other hazards is animals crossing the road.

It won't always be obvious when your windshield has sustained damage. If anything seems or sounds out of the ordinary, consider having your car looked at by a professional. It may be tempting to put off windshield replacement in Kent, WA, until the damage affects your ability to safely see through the glass, but this is one area where it simply isn't worth the risk. Instead, make sure damages are addressed as quickly as possible.
