It’s said that 90 percent of our driving decisions are based on visual information. Our automotive wiper blades play an important role in this. Most drivers know that a dirty or streaked windshield can catch the glare of the sun or on-coming headlights and make it nearly impossible to see.
Most busy car owners deal with their wiper blades from a failure perspective. They address them when they no longer function. Instead, drivers should think about wipers blades as an important safety system that they should maintain, rather than repair
And don’t think that your wiper blades will last longer because you don’t use them very often. Hey, they live outside in the harsh sun and freezing cold – ice and wind. They just dry out and crack over time.
We recommend that motorists change their wiper blades twice a year, in the spring and fall. That way you have functional blades for those spring showers and winter storms. And consider a windshield treatment to help repeal water and make it easier to clean off bugs and road grime.
Like everything else in the automotive world, there have been some big advancements in wiper blades, both in terms of the design and the materials from which the blade is made. We can help you get the same type of blades that came with your vehicle, or if you have a need for better than average windshield wipers, you can pay some more for an upgraded wiper.
Anytime there is ice, sleet, or snow be sure you have special winter blades that don’t clog up and freeze like standard blades. Trust our team of automotive repair specialists to keep you safely driving in any weather.
