Windshields & Wiper Blades 101
In our area, wiper blades last about 3 months, depending on what your tolerance is. Some people can handle streaks and some people can’t.
One person can get a little streak and it’ll drive them crazy. We’ll see other people drive in and we will marvel at them and wonder how they even saw to get to the shop.

Yes, it’s nice when you first put it on your windshield, but when it starts to wear off, it creates a real problem.
