Windshield Repairs in Jim Thorpe Pennsylvania
Your car's windshield is unlike other, more mysterious car parts. Although we do not give windshield much thought, they are significantly important.
Windshield glass is a form of laminated glass. They are composed of 3 layers, two outer layers of glass and a center laminate layer.
In many cases the inner layer is made of vinyl plastic. In simple terms, it is a very strong plastic. The vinyl plastic sheet has adhesive on both sides, adhering to the outside layers of glass. This is the foundation of how laminated safety glass is created. It will protect against a windshield from shattering into hazardous glass shards.
Windshields installed in a manufacturing plant setting are done with robots, in a remarkably controlled manner. When done this way, the fit is very exact. Learn more about Jim Thorpe window replacement cost from your local repair professional.
Windshield repair is necessitated right away if there is damage. Due the tight installation process as described above, the most ideal strategy is to have the fix done on the original windshield, in place. If the damage is a minor chip or crack, this is possible. This is not feasible if the crack has lengthened, if the chip is in the driver's field of vision or the chip is larger that a coin.
If spotted early enough the bright side is that a simple chip or little crack can most likely be fixed by DIY methods. While this is an option, we still suggest that these simple patches be tackled by an auto glass professional.
Some people question the value of a chip repair. But, if not handled promptly, the issue can become worse.

Can I Use A Paint Chip Repair Kit For A Custom Color?
Recently, I Bought A 2000 Mercury Sable. It Was Originally Red, But The Previous Owner Had It (Poorly) Repainted Black (No Body Damage, Just A Color Change). Now The Paint Is Chipped In A Few Places And Bubbling In A Few Others. I Don'T Want To Pay A Few Grand To Get The Whole Car Repainted, But I Read About Paint Chip Repair Kits (Http://Drcolorchip.Com/) That Require You To Put In A Factory Color Code. Problem Is, I Don'T Know What &Quot;Black&Quot; My Car Is (Touch Up Paint Says &Quot;Black&Quot;, No Number Or Anything). Is Black Black? If I Put In The Code For, Say, Ford 2000 Black, Will It Probably Be Close Enough?
No, black is not black anymore. Most blacks are more like a dark coffee brown. Some blacks have other colors added to them like green or a touch of white. But for small touch ups any black will do. But try and get an enamel to do it with. This is a thicker paint and fills chips better.
But if you ever do try and have the car repaired and refinished, it was probably painted with what is called a factory pack black. This would be a color mixed by the paint manufacturer so as to guarantee a paint match. Like with Du Pont it would be 99K.
Hairline Crack In Windshield Repair?
I Have A Hairline Crack In My Windshield That Is Beginning To Lengthen. It Is Not Bad Now, So Is There Anything I Can Do Or Put On It To Stop The Crack From Progressing?
If the crack has not lengthend to more than about an inch or so, there is an epoxy resin marketed specifically for windshields. It should be available at any local auto parts store, unless it is prohibited for use in your state.
The kit is designed for the little chips in a windshield, cause by gravel thrown up by other cars and trucks. I mean the small ding or the little "star" type crack. It is NOT designed for longer cracks. Even if a repair can be made for such longer cracks, it wouldn't last.
If you find the kit, read the instructions and disclaimers before you buy it. Also, make note of the applicator and other parts included. You will see what I mean about the size of the crack.
If you decide to fix it this way. Do it now. At some point, the crack WILL be to long to repair. One thing about the nature of a windshield crack. It WILL grow.
