Windshield Repairs in Franklin Pennsylvania

Your car's windshield is unlike other, more mysterious car components. Although we do not give windshield a lot of thought, they are very crucial.

Windshield glass is a sort of laminated glass. They are created of 3 layers, two outer layers of glass and an inner laminate layer.

In many cases the inner sheet is made of vinyl plastic. This inner layer sticks to the two outer layers. This is the foundation of how laminated safety glass is produced. It will protect against a windshield from shattering into unsafe glass fragments.

Cars that are newly built have windshields installed by robots in the production line. This is a tightly governed and monitored environment. When done this way, the fit is very precise. Learn more about Franklin windshield replacement cost from your local repair professional.

Whenever there is damage to a car's windshield, it must be repaired without delay. Because of the specialized manufacturer's installation and testing, the very best scenario would be to keep the original glass in position. If the damage is a small-scale chip or crack, this is feasible. A brand new windshield will be needed when the crack has gotten too big to repair or if the chip or crack is in the field of view of the driver.

Small chips or cracks may be repaired with any number of windshield repair kits that are on the market today. Although this is an option, we still highly recommend that these basic patches be handled by an auto glass service center.

Chip repair may look like such a negligible concern, lots of people will disregard it. Smaller chips that are overlooked can develop into large fractures. We see this in outside temperature fluctuations. If this happens, you will be dealing with a windshield replacement rather than a basic chip repair.

Windshield FAQ

Is There Anything You Can Do To Cut Down On Heat Coming Through Car Front Windshield While Driving?
I'Ve Never Experienced Such Major Heat Reflecting Off My Front Dash Board As This Summer - It Must Be My New Car And The Type Of Windshield. I Can Run The A/C But If It'S Sunny Out, The Front Dash Board Gets Extremely Hot And Reflects Right Onto The Driver And Passenger. Any Suggestions ???

I would recommend tinting the windows.

Tinting the windows will reduce the amount of heat in the car from sunlight, and many people like the look.

You should check with local laws to determine what is allowed. A professional shop that tints windows can advise you on this, and provide some direction on how far you can go, or even want to go. Most front windows are not tinted past a 20-30% tint, but as you move towards the rear of the car, that percentage often increases. You should not have to pay more than about $200 -$300 to have the entire car tinted.

In Pennsylvania Is It Legal To Tint The Front Windshield Of A Car Or Suv?

For Pennsylvania, no tint is allowed on the front windshield period. I reference the Pennsylvania Tint Law, in force as of 1999.

Windshield - No tint is allowed on the windshield.
Front Side Windows Must allow more than 70% of light in.
Back Side Windows Must allow more than 70% of light in.
Rear Window Must allow more than 70% of light in.

No state allows tinting other than the top band of the windshield, and that is federal standard. Tinting the area directly in front of the driver causes reduce visibility, and far greater chance of hitting a pedestrian, an animal, a cyclist, or anything else that moves at night that doesn't have bright lighting. You also cannot see potholes at night, and have a reduced chance of seeing parked cars, or regulatory signs. These are the reasons federal law prohibits any tint below a line, approximately the mirror height, or about 3 inches down from the top.

When You Slam Your Brakes On At 100 Mph, Why Doesn'T The Housefly In The Car, Slam Into The Front Windshield?

When the car is traveling at 100 mph, everything at rest with in the car is also traveling at 100 mph, this includes you, the air, any any flies present.

When you suddenly stop the car, you are not just stopping the car bu also everything inside as well.
Pretty much everything within the car slows down/stops at the same rate (assuming ample "Stopping" forces). So when you step on the brakes, the fly slows down too, despite the fact that it is not physically connected [strapped down] with the car.
The fly does not slam into the windshield for the same reason the back of the car does not turn into a vacuum.


EDIT:
"memento mori", inertia would be a reason why the fly might indeed hit the windshield, not why it might not.
Interial is the property of matter which says that objects tend to continue doing what they are doing (objects at rest stay at rest, objects in motion stay in motion, ...Newton's 1st law).
If the fly was in motion and you slammed on the breaks, the fly should stay in motion, not come to a rest.....unless of course, something did work on the fly (applied a "stopping" force over a distance) in order to change its kinetic energy.

When trading a vehicle in You want to make sure you fix things that are wrong unless your car isn't worth it...... Because when they do the appraisal they will deduct for those things and you wont get much for a trade i price.
