As with required automotive maintenance at the recommended intervals, it’s important to be proactive about addressing necessary repairs. Although it can be easy to put off as it may not seem to be at the top of your priority list, you’ll avoid complicating matters further in the long run.
As one key example, let’s consider those annoying rock chips that suddenly appear out of nowhere. Easily put to the wayside, but with services that come to you and have the capability to simply fix the chip instead of replacing the entire windshield, it’s just as easy to get it taken care of right away!
“If you get a rock chip in your windshield, don’t put off getting it repaired,” advises Boyd Baillie, owner of SuperGlass Windshield Repair of Nebraska. “Repairs can be made in the cold weather. If you wait, there’s a greater chance that it will crack out and you’ll end up having to replace the windshield, which could end up being quite costly.
Repairing a windshield costs a fraction of replacement. In fact, many insurance companies will waive your deductible and pay for the repair directly.
And remember, no windshield is quite as safe as the original (installed when your vehicle was built). With repair, we don’t need to remove the seals and potentially reduce the effectiveness of the glass in your vehicle. Filling a crack is far safer and allows you to drive away immediately following the repair.
Actually, there are glass shops out there that use reduced quality glass to replace your windshield. This increases their profits – but significantly reduces the clarity and safety of your windshield. The same holds true for the adhesives used in replacement jobs. Some adhesives are far better than others, but also more expensive.
You can truly be put in harm’s way if the replacement shop uses an inferior adhesive. Your windshield could launch from your vehicle if you were in an accident within a few hours of the job completion.
Above all, choose a repair company that is committed to providing the best repair possible. SuperGlass Windshield Repair has built a great reputation for high quality auto glass repair services and products. We are constantly testing and developing new resins and technology that allows SuperGlass to remain the quality leader in windshield repair worldwide.”
Indeed, with the advanced technology being utilized in newer vehicle models, those in the automotive industry who are committed to continuous education about the best repair techniques are the ones you want to have working on one of your most significant investments.
