Interesting Facts About Your Windshield
Did you know?
- The structural support for the cabin of the vehicle is your windshield. It prevents your roof from caving in the event of a rollover.
- Your windshield provides 45% of the vehicle’s structural strength if you’re in a front end collision and 60% if you are in an accident and your vehicle rolls over.
- Your windshield serves as a barrier to keep you in your car and protected from debris.
Small chips and cracks compromise the structural integrity of your windshield and are often just the beginning of much larger windshield issues. If you do not act on getting your windshield taken care of quickly, a small chip can turn into a web of cracks across the windshield, and you will soon have to replace the whole windshield.
Windshield repair is a quick and easy way to fix a damaged windshield instead of replacing it.
Windshield repair works by injecting a transparent structural adhesive into the outer layer of the windshield that is damaged. Once the area gets filled, it is cured with a special Ultra Violet light. Windshield repairs on average only take about 10-15 minutes to complete.
You know that your windshield replacement is covered if you have comprehensive glass coverage as part of your auto insurance, but did you know that your windshield repair is also covered in full, without having to pay your deductible, or your rates going up? An insurance company will be happy to pay for the repair in full at no cost to you because it is considered no fault by the driver, and it is much cheaper to do the repair than it is for them to replace your windshield.
