Damaged Windshield: What to Do
Your hectic day-to-day schedule might prevent you from getting your windshield repaired in Thunder Bay immediately, but you do have some options to stay as safe as possible. At Breeny’s Auto Body Shop, we recommend measuring the crack or chip. If the crack is less than 12 inches long or the chip is smaller than a quarter, it usually means the damage can be repaired. But, if the damage is larger, it will probably mean you need a windshield replacement and it’s unsafe to drive your vehicle. Other things to keep in mind include:
Keeping dirt out by placing a clear piece of tape over the crack/chip
Avoid parking your car in the sun for long periods of time
Avoid using your air conditioning or defroster on high, let it cool down/warm up gradually
Avoid slamming doors
Don’t wash your car

Breeny’s Saved the Day
" Amazing and exceptional service!! My volkswagen golf rear window shattered from the cold weather. I was so upset, knowing how expensive volkswagen repairs can be. I contacted Ted and Tom from Breeny's right away and they saved the day! Reassuring me that my window would be fixed the very next day. For a very reasonable price. *thank you!
Above all, they cleaned out my car, were super friendly and picked me up from work.
Thanks again !! "
