Handy Pros Can Handle Your Repair or Replacement
Dirt can accumulate in cracked and chipped areas, making repairs more visible, so it makes sense to deal with damage more quickly than not. Repairing is feasible up to a certain crack or rock ding size (driver’s license rectangular area) and can depend upon the extent of damage (does not obstruct the view of the driver). When filling a chip proves a viable option, it is likely that you will increase the service life of a window, but sometimes patching a crack or hole does not prevent a crack from growing, forcing a future replacement. For anything too severe, we recommend auto glass replacement; if damage is left as is, the glass may deteriorate further during vehicle use and endanger the passengers inside the vehicle. Large rock dings and spider webbing means large visual obstruction which could result in accidents.
Windshield Replacement Hialeah Follows A Detailed Process
An even ribbon of adhesive compound fastens the new glass when laid down on its final position. To replace a severely damaged windshield, shop personnel clean the area first. A special gasket seals the glass edge to finish the windshield replacement process. The surface of the frame is prepped by scraping off the residue of the old adhesives and other compounds. Installing a new windshield starts off at the removal of the gasket or molding that houses the damaged glass. Our shop team removes old adhesive in preparation for the new window and places tape to help avoid paint damage from the urethane primer. The points of contact are spread with urethane adhesive, and the new glass is installed and any necessary electronic hookups completed.

The Surprising Features of Windshields
The windshield forms an important part of the car or truck. Now, windshields feature many kinds of added functionality such as wipers, driver assist systems, defogging systems, polarized shades and more, all of which significantly improve the driving experience. Carmakers regularly introduce novel innovations for improving safety and convenience, and it’s important for glass installers to stay up to date on the latest improvements. Car glass features differ from one automobile brand to another.
Tremendous Innovation Led to Modern Auto Glass
Front car windows have tempered glass layers pressed together on a layer of poly-vinyl butryal (PVB) – the coating that prevents shattering. The tempered and coated glass is fitted with accessories and technologies for a more care free and comfortable driving experience. Windshields are taken for granted but embody mind-bending innovation by the automobile industry. Laminated glass became the required material for making windshields many years ago. Believe it or not, early auto glass was little different from a standard house window.
Tempered Glass Protects Against Injury
A strong material, tempered glass derives its durability from a repeated rapid heating and cooling process (tempering). Through this process, the material can withstand up to ten times the crash force of non-tempered glass. Tempered glass is sometimes called heavy-duty, designed to withstand blunt force shock.
