Multi-Purpose Windshields

Halco Glass repair and replacement in Vancouver.


Today’s windshields do a lot more than just act as a barrier for insects, wind, and weather. In most modern vehicles, windshields are engineered to provide significant structural support for added stability on the road and increased protection for drivers and passengers in a collision or rollover accident.
At Halco Glass, we understand the important role your windshield plays in keeping you safe behind the wheel. And it’s something we don’t take lightly.
Our trained technicians will analyze the extent of the damage to your windshield and will provide you with the most cost-effective options for restoring this very important component of your vehicle’s safety features to full functionality.





Your Windshield in Cold Weather

Sudden frigid conditions around the Lower Mainland area could cause your car’s windshield to develop or increase the size of existing cracks. Glass expands and contracts due to temperature so it’s important to be aware of sudden temperature changes.
Never use boiling water to defrost your windshield. Instead, turn on the defroster and let the windshield warm up slowly. However, be careful not to set the defroster too high. Let the windshield warm up gradually so the glass isn’t shocked by cold temperatures outside and warm temperatures inside, which can also lead to cracking or developing larger cracks from ones that already exist.
