What makes a windshield so resilient?

Auto glass is actually two layers of normal glass with a sandwiched middle layer of poly-vinyl laminate. This gives it the name laminated glass or safety glass. The effect that the poly-vinly laminate has on the windshield is incredibly important for the entire passenger cabin. When impacted, whether small or large, the laminate provides a malleable structure for the rigid glass to bend with. The glass can shatter and break, but will not detach from the vinyl. This often means that in the event of impact, instead of the windshield shattering through the cabin, it remains a solid layer of material. This prevents debris from the outside from entering the vehicle, and keeps the cabin free from most glass shards. There are several side effects of this material that also make the car a much more comfortable ride:

  • High frequency sound is absorbed by safety glass. This makes the cabin a much less distracting place for a driver. 
  • Ultraviolet light is absorbed at an increased rate because of the laminate layer. Up to 97% of it never makes it into the passenger cabin.

What does 1-800-Windshield do exactly?

By filling out the form on this website or dialing 1-800-Windshield, you will be immediately directed to a local auto glass shop that has passed our stringent national network standards. This means that the quality of service you get is both excellent and efficient. Think of the following benefits of using a local business that has such high standards:

  • Local businesses understand that their customers allow them to grow and be successful. They treat every person with individual respect and put personal touches on every aspect of their work.
  • A shop that knows the Kansas city area can often predict what damages are occurring from weather in their area. A local repair center may be better prepared to fix a problem.
  • A business based in the Overland Park area will know the specific insurance laws for Johnson County and Kansas. This can save the customer significant money.

What damages should be brought to an expert?

  • Cracked windshields are the biggest risk when looking at windshield damages. A crack can expand from temperature shifts and often is a precursor to more significant breaks if not dealt with.
  • Scratches are usually not viewed as critical repairs, but can provide weak spots where weather can worsen the damage over time. 
  • Chipped glass is an indicator that the windshield has experienced a heavy impact recently. Though a crack may not have appeared, the window needs to be looked at to verify its integrity.
