Auto Glass Repair And Windshield Replacement Austin Tx

Frozen Windshields In Texas Hate Boiling Hot Water!

Texas does not see a whole lot of ice or snow. So it is understandable that people

with good intentions can forget that hot water plus frozen glass can equal broken glass.

I have learned all too well from my years at Austin Windshields to never thaw out

windshields this way. Invest in a cheap plastic scraper (never use metal spatulas) and

your windshield will thank you. Any microscopic chips or dings that you did not even

know were there could easily crack out when the hot water meets the cold glass. If you

notice chips that need repairing, call a reputable company to come out to you and do a

windshield chip repair before it splits on you.

Auto Glass Repair Or Replace?

How do you know if your windshield qualifies for auto glass chip repair or not. The answer is easy. If you can cover up the damage with a quarter, then the chip is repairable. The only exception is if the chip is in the drivers line of vision. The line of vision is most easily describes as a medium sized pizza box directly in front of the drivers face. If the chip is in that box then the chip is lawfully unable to be repaired. Even if you do get a shop to repair that chip illegally, it will not pass inspection if it is in the drivers eye line. I get many questions about whether or not a chip repair will be invisible or not after it is completed. The answer is simple, NOT USUALLY. While it is true that some very tiny chip repairs will turn out virtually invisible, these are the exception and not the rule. Chips are usually drilled out and filled with resin and then cured under UV light. This process is designed to keep the damage minimal and prevent the chip from spreading, not to magically make the chip dissolve away. The resin is made of a different material than the glass and will actually begin to change color slightly over the years as it reacts with the elements and will sometimes even yellow a bit over time.

Chip repairs are a wonderful way to save money and extend the life of your windshield. If a perfect clear and clean blemish free windshield is what you are after then definitely opt for the replacement choice. make sure you ask for OEM auto glass like what is used at Austin Windshields and your glass will look as good as the day it rolled off the assembly line.
