Headlights are one of the most important safety features on your vehicle, so it’s important that they’re kept in pristine condition. At Capital Auto Glass and Upholstery, we provide professional auto glass repair and replacement services so you can keep your headlights shining brightly. Read on to learn more about why headlight restoration is essential for maintaining the safety and value of your car.


Why you should consider having your headlights restored

Even if you’re a cautious driver who keeps your car impeccably clean, over time the glass or plastic covers on your headlights inevitably become damaged by UV rays from the sun, debris from the road, heat from the halogen bulbs and even scrubbing from carwash brushes. Some signs of deteriorating headlights include:

  • Hazy, yellow or clouded headlight covers

  • Small scratches or dents

  • Lights no longer shining as brightly as they once did

If you start to notice these types of problems with your headlights, it’s time to look into having them restored. For normal wear and tear—such as cloudiness, small scratches and pitting—having your headlights repaired is more cost-effective option than having the lights replaced altogether. However, if there are signs of major damage to one of your headlights—such as a crack that goes all the way through the cover and affect how the light shines—you’ll need a replacement. Our experts will be able to tell you if your headlights can be repaired or if they need to be completely replaced.
