When should you change your wiper blades?

via GIPHY

Some people like to change their wiper blades on a set schedule like every six months or when the blades start to loose their effectiveness. A lot of factors determine how frequently you change your wiper blades. Such as how often do you use them? Do you live in an area that gets lots of rain or snow? Are your wiper blades exposed to extreme hot or cold temperatures?

What does your Car Craft technician look for when inspecting your wiper blades?

  • Condition of the wiper blade frame at the joints or connection points
  • Any signs of corrosion from washer fluid and Winter salt water
  • All signs of damage to squeegee such as cracks, tears or missing pieces
  • Test the flexibility of squeegee rubber to ensure it has proper movement
  • Look for rounded edges on squeegee rubber as signs of excessive wear
  • Check to see wiper is properly attached

If you haven’t changed your wiper blades in the last 6 – 12 months they need to be checked. If your wiper blades smear rather than clean your windshield, it’s time to replace them. If your wiper blades skip and miss spots, then they need to be replaced.

Have Car Craft check your wiper blades today to keep you safe on the roads.

Testimonials

“I went to Car Craft a few years ago BECAUSE I was looking for a car shop that had integrity and offered only services that were needed as cost has always been a factor since I was female and taken advantage of previously by unscrupulous service shops.” Lavana
I own a Ford 2004 F350 Diesel and have had terrible experiences with other shops.  After my first experience with Tony and Car Craft, I know I’ve found the right shop.  I get better mileage now which relates to less wear on my vehicle thanks to Car Craft. Wayne Donecz
Norm at the front desk provides unreal service each and every time. Owner Tony is very professional and friendly. Car Craft is definitely doing their best to become the neighbourhood garage. Great staff, and great work. Alex Labreque

Professional, courteous, competent and friendly Shirley Gordon
I got a recommendation from the local Napa parts dealer for Car Craft to help me with my check engine light coming on while I was visiting my parents in Kelowna from Puyallup, Washington. I was leaving to go home the next morning over the Coquihalla Pass Highway. It was after 3 pm when I pulled in. They took great care of me and had the problem diagnosed and the light turned off and I was on my way just after 4 pm. Fantastic people with a great attitude to help you.Hats off to these folks it’s not about the money to them it’s all about taking care of you. ANONYMOUS
Norm has been very professional. Bob & Lynn Houle
Fast, friendly service. I did not feel bamboozled by these guys – they explained what I needed to have done and were great about telling me the work that was not necessary. I really appreciated that. I think women can rest assured that they are not getting ripped off when the bring their cars in on their own. That is a real concern for a lot of us. Kate
I found the staff to be friendly, professional and extremely competent. I would have no hesitation to recommend them to others. I will be using their services again in the future. ANONYMOUS
Rob, Norm, Tony and their crew are as professional and trustworthy as I have seen in any profession. I couldn’t ask for a better group of people to look after my vehicles. Both my wife and I take our personal and work vehicles to CarCraft. We are very grateful for their outstanding service. ANONYMOUS
Well done and great service Frank Sebastian
