What are the advantages of windscreen replacement and repair during rainy weather?

There are a number of benefits and advantages associated with repairing a car windscreen before the rainy weather associated with Autumn truly sets in. These advantages include:

  • Ensuring good visibility- with heavy downpours visibility during the Autumn can be greatly reduced. Pair this heavy, sheet rain, with a crack or chip in your windscreen and your visibility could be dangerously low. This increases the risk of a being involved in a serious road traffic accident. As a result, while you shouldn’t drive with a damaged windscreen at any time of year, it’s especially important to get this fixed, or even replaced, when the weather is bad.
  • Preventing water ingress- not only does heavy autumn rain make driving visibility poor, this can also cause water ingress and damage to your vehicle, especially if your windscreen has chips or cracks. Even if these chips or cracks haven’t been noticeable, they may be near the seals of the windscreen, and this will lead to leaks. This is not only potentially damaging to your car, it can also be distracting when you drive. Repairing your windscreen can be crucial for preventing this.
  • Reducing additional damage- driving with a chipped or cracked windscreen at any time of the year can be a risk as this damage can be extended and made worse by a range of factors including road vibrations, gravel and debris, and cold temperatures. However, in the Autumn weather, there is an increased risk of falling leaves, branches and stones. As a result, fixing your windscreen can be very important to minimise damage this Autumn.
