  • Auto glass is an incredibly important portion of the safety system in modern vehicles. It should be treated with the same degree of importance as the braking system or airbags. None of these things should fall into disrepair.
  • Windshield repairs are often done very quickly. Glass technicians understand that the service is often only needed because of urgent circumstances. Nobody plans to have a branch fall on their windshield or have a rock leave a large chip.

What makes auto glass so different from normal windows?

The modern windshield is made of a material that is commonly referred to as safety glass. This safety glass is actually two layers of normal glass with a layer of poly-vinyl plastic fused in the middle. This unique material appears no more than a single pane of glass, but it is actually a composite structure that ends with unique attributes. When impacted, safety glass can shatter and break, but not separate and launch into the cabin. The poly-vinyl layer in between the two layers of glass can bend and warp, but maintains a single shield against exterior elements. Safety glass is also used in skylights,  bullet proof glass in banks, refrigerator shelves and cutting boards.

What types of damage should be taken to an expert?

If windshield damage is suspected, bring it to a professional. Every situation is unique and any armchair diagnosis from an individual without auto glass expertise should be taken lightly. The first thing to keep in mind is that an estimate on damages is free, so don't wait for days wondering if a crack is serious. The following damages are the most common and should definitely warrant a visit to an auto glass shop:

  • Cracks occur for a variety of reasons. The important thing to know is that a crack is often only being held together because of the poly-vinyl layer of the safety glass. Be sure to take a cracked windshield to an expert immediately.
  • Chips in windshields often happen when an intense but small impact occurs. Pebbles or hail are excellent examples of objects that can chip glass. Chips can weaken a windshield and make it prone to shatter situations, so be sure to take the car to a professional for repairs.
  • Scratches are often the easiest to fix. They provide weak spots for weathering or impacts to exploit. Deal with these before they become more expensive fixes.
