Does Your Windshield Need to be Repaired or Replaced?
Posted in Windshield Replacement, on July 06, 2020 By Admin
Whenever we sustain damage to our windshield, there’s always a hope that the damage is minimal, and that we won’t have to replace the windshield. While there’s a good chance that a simple repair will do the trick, it’s also possible that complete auto glass replacement may be required.
At a reliable auto glass repair shop, you’ll soon find out if repairs are possible. A good shop will make every effort to repair glass damage and restore windshield integrity. The thing is, some damage is simply beyond repair, and professional replacement is the only option going forward.
Understanding Windshield Repairs and Replacement
Windshield glass damage can occur for a number of reasons, and it’s often a random occurrence. With a small chip, the damage can get bigger quite quickly, and repair may simply not be possible. In serious cases, when the driver’s view is obstructed, there could also be a safety risk when driving.
Whatever the scope of windshield damage, it should be attended to immediately, particularly if you’ll need to replace the windshield entirely. Today, with the latest repair technology, there’s no reason to neglect damage – and chances are pretty good that less expensive repairs can be achieved.
Certain glass damage can be repaired
Depending on the extent of damage, many cracks and chips can be effectively repaired. An experienced technician can assess the size and depth of the damage and recommend the best course of action. As it is, a good shop will only suggest complete auto glass replacement if there’s no other option.
The cost to repair VS the cost to replace
Naturally, the cost of windshield repair is measurably less than the cost of replacement. The important thing is to make necessary repairs when possible and thus avoid the higher cost of replacing the entire windscreen. For car owners who postpone (or neglect) repairs, replacement is costlier.
Auto glass repairs should be guaranteed
A reputable auto glass shop will satisfy customers with a 100% guarantee. The shop will install high-quality OEM glass products (Original Equipment Manufacturer) with a lifetime warranty that covers window leakage, installation workmanship, and any potential manufacturer deficiencies.
