Importance of Auto Glass Repair or Replacement

When it comes to a windshield glass that we find in front of a vehicles, it is good to know that manufacturing them is made up of two layers of glass glued and separated by a complete layer of polyvinyl butyrate. For several purposes the layer in between the two glass layers serve as a glue and seal. One of the most important uses of this substance in between is to maintain its soundness so that the windshield will not shatter during the occurrence.

Whenever there is a damage seen in an auto glass, most vehicle owners quickly look for something to replace it. The truth is that vehicle owners do not really need to replace the entire windshield for glass cracks since auto shops can do glass repair services, but the problem is that most insurance companies only give vehicle owners the option to replace the entire windshield which is difficult to find and very costly too.

The good thing is that today, most insurance companies, are already covering windshield repair instead of windshield replacement. If the damage to the auto glass is controlled and in a small location with minimal cracks, then the easiest and most effective solution is to repair it. The cost of repairing your auto glass is very low and it is even far less that the deductible amount for the replacement of your auto glass by insurance companies. For as low as $50 you can have your auto glass good as new, that is, if the crack or chip is a single or small one. There is usually a $15 charge for each crack after the first and $150 for large cracks. This is quite a small amount compared to paying around $10000 for a brand new replacement.

But just the same, when repairing them is not possible, if you’re facing a large number of chips that look like you were involved in a shootout, if the cracks exceed 6 inches, if the chip is a large bulls eye bigger than a quarter and if the larger damaged area is in front of the driver, then it may be a better idea to simply have them replace to stay safe.

Speaking about repairing your windshield, do not trust your auto glass repair or replacement to just anyone. Your windshield requirement must be in a perfect condition, which means maximum visibility and safety. If the repair is poor, the windshield can be further damaged and the risk of getting injured in an accident is high.
