Lessons Learned from Years with Vehicles

Understanding Auto Glass Chips and Cracks and Its Repair or Replacement Manufacturing the windshield glass fount in front of our vehicles is done by gluing together two layers of glass with a layer of polyvinyl butyrate in-between. This PVB layer basically acts as glue and seal that puts the two pieces of glass together to serve several purposes. One of the main reasons for this material in between the glasses is so that the windshield will not completely shatter when an accident occurs. However, when damage to auto glass occurs, it’s not uncommon for the owner to immediately start to look for a replacement. But truth be known, glass repair has been around for a while but has not been added to the equation then because insurance companies only option is to replace the entire windshield which is extremely rare to find costly if not expensive. Today, however, the picture has changed, and most insurance companies now give coverage to windshield repair instead of replacement. The easiest and most effective solution to an auto glass that has a minimal crack in a small location 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. This is because you are only dealing with a single chip or small crack that cost a fraction or as low as $50 -and is as good as new. If there are more than one cracked part, then usually charge $15 for every other crack and if the crack is large then you can be charged around $150. This is nothing compared to $1000.00 for a new one.
