Apply Clear Nail Polish or Superglue

The first thing to do before applying clear nail polish or superglue is to clean the windshield with auto glass cleaner to rid of any debris. After using the solution, place clear packing tape over the area to seal it.

Avoid Exposing Glass to Extreme Temperatures

When the temperature fluctuates, your auto glass expands and contracts. The changes in temperature exposure often lead to further cracking. The best thing to do is keep your vehicle parked in a garage or shade at a constant temperature and avoid freezing temperatures or direct sunlight.

Use A Windshield Repair Kit

Windshield repair kits can repair minor cracks. It’s essential to have a basic understanding of tools before attempting to use a windshield repair kit. You’ll need to make a tiny hole into the top layer of glass with a drill bit and apply the specialized resin to seal the glass.

Be A Cautious Driver

Any vibration can cause a vehicle chip to spread. It’s essential to be as cautious as possible driving over speed bumps, accelerating on the highway, and even slamming your door. It’s critical to avoid potholes and stay away from rocky terrain.
