Windshield Wiper Blades in Grants Pass, OR

Windshield wiper blades* are an important safety feature you typically forget about until needed.  Living in Southern Oregon we know that it can go from sunny and beautiful outside to pouring down rain in 20 minutes.  That is why it important to make sure your windshield wipers are in working order year round. 

Wipers blades take a beating from Mother Nature, here in Grants Pass.  Snow, ice, rain, cold and hot temperatures all affect the integrity of the rubber blade causing it to split and crack over time.  Dirt, debris and road grime also not only affects the effectiveness of wipers, but can damage the windshield by scratching the glass.  Even if your wiper blades do not need to be replaced it is important to clean them.  Sometimes simply cleaning the blade will improve their functionality for a period of time.  However, with the all the types of weather we have here in Grants Pass we recommend checking and changing your windshield wiper blades yearly.  When you purchase your blades with us we even offer free installation!     

Signs Your Wiper Blades Need to Be Changed…

  1. Splits, gouges, jagged edges or discoloration in the rubber.
