Windshield Repairs in Lehigh Township Pennsylvania
Your windshield does not belong with the mystical, under hood components. Similar to other things in life, when your windshield is working correctly, we don't ever think about it. On the other hand, whenever there is an issue, it becomes a serious issue.
Windshield glass is a sort of laminated glass. It features two layers of special composite glass with a laminate in between the glass.
The laminate generally is made from a kind of vinyl plastic. The vinyl plastic layer has glue on both sides, adhering to the outside layers of glass. This serves to keep both layers together and furnishes a surface in case of shattering for glass fragments to adhere to.
Windshields installed in a manufacturing plant setting are done with robots, in an extremely controlled manner. When done this way, the fit is very precise. Learn more about Lehigh Township glass replacement from your local repair professional.
Damaged windshields are a safety threat, therefore they have to be fixed when there are any hints of damage. Due to the specialized manufacturer's installation and testing, the most suitable scenario would be to keep the original glass in position. Usually this is possible if the damage is a very small chip, starburst or crack. This is not possible if the crack has stretched out, if the chip is in the car driver's field of vision or the chip is bigger that a coin.
If spotted early enough the bright side is that a tiny chip or little crack can likely be mended by DIY solutions. If you are not comfortable carrying this out yourself, then we advocate seeing a windshield service center at once.
Often, car owners will overlook a tiny chip. Little chips that are brushed off can turn into large cracks. We see this in exterior temperature swings. If this occurs, you will be looking at a windshield replacement instead of a simple chip repair.

I Did The Finger Nail Test And They Are Too Small For My Nail To Fit In So I Guess That'S A Good Thing
But Winter Is Here So I Need To Fix It
What Should I Do?
If you have car insurance most repair shops will fill the cracks so that the window will not crack further.

Replacement Auto Glass Pilkington Vs Ppg And Ap Tech?
Sadly I Had To Replace My Original Honda Factory Windshield The Other Day. I Went With Pilkington. The Window Seems Distorted And Is Messing With My Vision. I Have Always Read That Pilkington Is A Better Option So I Am Shocked.
Anyhow, Does Anyone Have Input On Ppg Or Ap Tech Glass Replacement. Apt Is The Stamp On All The Original Honda Windows On The Rest Of The Van And I Can Order One Of Those From The Glass Shop. It Just Won'T Have The &Quot;Honda&Quot; Stamp On It Like If I Went Through The Dealership For The Replacement.
Any Glass Techs Out There Have Any Input On These Brands? Or Any Consumers Deal With Any Of This Crap With A Replacement Windshield From Pilkington Before? Thank You In Advance!

Ice From Truck Hit My Car , Cracked Windshield?
I Was Driving On The Right Lane, Then A Truck Advances On The Left Lane, While The Truck Is Driving The Curve In The Road A Chunk Of Ice Hits My Windshield And Cracks The Front Windshield Passengers Side,, I Immediately Sped Up Called 9-11 And Gave Them The Trucks License Plate 3 Times Clearly, And The Description On The Truck, Ie. Color, Lettering On The Back.
I Tried Honking , Flashing Light To The Truck Driver To Pull Over But He Immediately Sped Up And Off, The Dispatcher Instructed Me To Pull Over, The Officer Was Nice, Told Me They Were Looking For This Guy - And Gave Me A Sheet To Mail In To Get The Police Report,
I Called My Insurance Company To Report It, I Am Trying To Avoid Paying Anything At All Since It Was Not My Negligence , This Was The Truck Driver/Company Who Ignored Nj Laws Pertaining To Clearing Ice Off Motor Vehicles, I Have Basic Coverage , W/ Coverage For Under Insured Or Hit And Run. The Police Officer Told Me I Was Not At Fault, And If They Can'T Find This Guy My Insurance Company Would Pay For It Regardless Of My Policy, Now I Did Not Write Down The Plate I Reported, Will It Be On The Police Report?
I Can Still Drive The Car, But I Dont Want The Cracks To Get Worse.
I Am Still Awaiting A Call From My Insurance Claims Specialist, I Don'T Want This To Raise My Rates At All.
First off, are you sure the ice came off the truck, and wasn't thrown up from the road? That question will be asked.
As far as the truck pulling over, unless I know I hit something, I am not pulling over for somebody honking and flashing lights unless it is a police vehicle. Too many people have been killed, robbed, or been car/truck-jacked over the years to take a chance on that.
So it is always possible, even if the ice came off his roof, he didn't know, and was protecting himself. If it is determined he is, indeed, responsible, he will pay for the damages. If it is not determined he is responsible, you would need comprehensive coverage, or a specific glass policy, to get insurance to replace the windshield.
It is now in the hands of the police, they will take the appropriate action.
Your insurance company will ask for, and receive, a copy of the police report. This should have no affect on your rates, whether it is covered by the driver or not.
The Tires On My Car Are Cracking.... What Is Causing This?
The Edges Of Me Tires, Where The Tire Meets The Hubcap, Are Cracking Really Badly. The Car Is 6 Years Old And Has 45,000 Miles On It. I Replaced All The Tires About 4 Years Ago With Tires I Bought At Sam'S Club. These Tires Are Suppose To Be The Best, They Are Goodyear, But Thats All I Know About Them. What Is The Reason For Them To Be Cracking? Is This Something That Is Dangerous And Could Cause A Blowout?
The cracking may or may not be serious. There are a couple of things you need to check to determine the severity of the problem.
How deep are the cracks?
If the cracks are basically just surface cracks and not more than a like 1/16th of an inch deep it is probably not a safety issue as long as the tires are not over 5 years old.
What is the age of the tires?
You can determine this by looking at the DOT#. The DOT# is located along the bead of the tire where the tire and wheel meet. The tire will say DOT followed by 11 numbers and letters. To determine the age of the tire you need to look at the last four numbers. The last four numbers reperesent the following: first two is the week of manufacture 01 thru 52. The second numbers are the year of manufacture: example 02 would be 2002.
If your tires are 5 years old and have cracking you should replace them. The cracking is an indicator that the tire is getting "dry" and when this occurs there is arisk of separation (the tread coming apart from the rest of the tire). The Goodyear tires you purchased at Sam's Club are made specifically for SC and can only be warrantied through them. You may want to take a look and see if they will warranty them under the manufacturers warranty for workmanship and material.
Hope this helps!
