Should you repair or replace your window or windshield

By Ronald Morrow Subscribe to RSS | May 27th 2012 | Views:

Concerned automobile owners always perform regular maintenance on their vehicle to keep it healthy. They know that problems should be immediately fixed; otherwise they can push towards expensive repairs later. Even car fanatics often neglect the condition of their windshield. It is a potion of the car that is easily overlooked but its impotence is very high because any repairs regarding windshield should not be delayed. Exposure to dirt in the cracked areas can cause ineffective repairs if left alone for too long. Window replacement is needed when the glass goes beyond repair and it is a lot more expensive than auto glass repair. Many people think that the cost of auto glass repair is too much. Paying more than fifty bucks for a single chip seems stupid. The thing is that windshields are very fragile in terms of structural integrity. Internal stress can easily make a chip into a crack.

As windshields are very important parts of your automobile you should always take good care of it. Its primary function is to block wind and airborne debris so that you can have clear visibility when driving. It also supports the roof of the car and prevents airbags from being deployed upwards. Your windshield takes a lot of abuse. It has to bear through temperature changes, road vibrations, debris etc. This is why the slightest crack can mess up its integrity. If the damage is severe you may need windshield or window replacement. Window replacement is much less expensive than windshield replacement. As an economical solution you should always try to repair your windshield before considering replacing it. Unless the damage is too much it can always be recovered.

It usually takes about fifty dollars for auto glass repair if the problem is a single rock chip. You will be charged with ten dollars for every additional chip. If your window or windshield is damaged beyond repair then you can replace it from authorized dealers or independent glass shop. Authorized dealers sell OEM windshields, so they are much more costly. The cost also depends on the model of the car. Dealers charge more because they provide the same glass that came with the original windshield. The glasses sold in independent shops are less expensive but they offer similar quality, clarity and safety. However it is recommended that during replacement only OEM-recommended sealers and adhesives should be used. Using adhesives and sealers that are of lower quality, increases the risk of the windshield being dislodged in an accident or the windshield leaking. Windshield repair facilities usually deal with repairs only; they do not replace windshields. Automotive glass specialists can do both repair and replacement of windshields. They also handle the side and rear windows. Windshield repairs are usually covered by automotive insurance companies. Windshield replacement is much more costly so it requires you to pay your deductible before they pay for the replacement. Some insurance companies prefer the repairing of your windshields. In such cases they do not require any deductible from your.
