Windshield Repairs in Allentown Pennsylvania
Your windshield does not belong with the incomprehensible, under hood car parts. Although we do not give windshield much thought, they are quite crucial.
Many do know that windshields are made up of a number of layers of glass. They are composed of 3 layers, two outer layers of composite glass and a middle laminate layer.
The center layer of the windshields are is normally made from a vinyl plastic material. In simple terms, it is a very tough plastic. This middle layer sticks to both outer layers. This serves to hold both layers together and provides a surface in case of shattering for glass fragments to adhere to.
Cars that are newly built have windshields installed by robots in the production line. This is a tightly controlled and monitored environment. The fit and moulding is extremely tight. This results from the advanced alignment and the precision of the robots. Learn more about Allentown window replacement near me from your local repair professional.
Windshield repair is required as soon as possible if there is damage. Because of the specialized manufacturer's installation and testing, the most effective scenario is to keep the original glass in position. If the damage is a minor chip or crack, this is possible. If a crack has elongated, or a more substantial object has significantly cracked your windshield it means it is time for an investment in a new windshield.
If spotted early enough the good news is that a small chip or little crack can very likely be fixed by do-it-yourself methods. If you are not comfortable doing this yourself, then we recommend going to a windshield repair shop as soon as possible.
Sometimes, car drivers will dismiss a small-sized chip. But, if not handled right away, the issue can become worse.

Crooked Mechanics Adding Extra Chips On Windshield?
Is It A Common Scam For Crooked Mechanics To Add More Chips On Windshield To Increase The Repair Cost?? My Girlfriend Swears She Only Had One Chip On Her Windshield When She Took Her Car In For A Tint Job And A Windshield Chip Repair Estimate. When She Got Her Car Back 2 Hours Later, She Finds 3 Small Chips That Are Very Unnoticeable If You Don'T Look Closely And Another Chip Not Too Far From The Her Original Chip That She Got Inspected. She Swears The Chips Were Not There Before She Took It Into The Shop And Would Have Noticed At Least The Other Chip Near By While Inspecting Her Windshield If It Was There Beforehand. If It Is A Case Of A Crooked Scam, Is There Anything We Can Do??
It's not very likely. Windshield chips can happen very easily and go unnoticed for days, weeks, months and even years. The person would have to be a genius to place just the right amount of damage so as NOT to crack the entire windshield glass. Glass is HIGHLY unpredictable in what it'll do once it receives an impact from outside forces.
Which Car Window Tint Is Legal?
Hello Chris Barrow,
I have read the current posted Texas window inspections regulations. Windshields may be tinted only to certain dimensions, typically five inches from the top of the windshield. Texas law limits vehicle window tint to 25 percent or more light transmission and 25 percent or less luminous reflectance. According to a new Texas law that went into effect Sept. 1, 2009, auto glass installers in Texas must apply a vehicle safety compliance label to windows and windshields they tint or they could face a misdemeanor charge and up to a $1,000 fine.

What To Do With Auto Glass Insurance Reported Claim When I Was Tricked Into Telling My Insurance?
While Getting My New Car Detailed I Was Approached By A Glass Repair Representative From Safelite. He Said I Had More Then 10 Chips In My Window And They Could Replace It. I Said No Im Not Interested In Paying For Replacement Until Damage Is Moderate To Severe. He Said No You Don'T Pay For Anything Az Allows Under Glass Laws Up To 6 Replacements Through Insurance Per Year With No Effect On Premium Price. He Said Lets Call Your Insurance And Talk To Them, So He Pulled Out His Phone And Called Usaa And Told Me To Make Up A Date For The Damage So We Could Find Out If It Would Cost Anything. I Assumed I Had Full Glass Coverage Being A Leased Car But I Actually Had A 500 Dollar Deductible On Glass So I Said Never Mind I Didn'T Wish To Follow Through Since Most Windshield Replacements Cost Around That Price (Exact Quote On My Car Was 520$) She Said Will It Still Is Going To Be A Reported Claim. Frustrated I Hung Up His Phone And Left. I Later Added Full Glass Coverage To My Insurance Policy Incase My Glass Ever Gets Cracked Severely. My Main Question Is, Are They Going To Consider Me For Insurance Fraud If I Have To Report My New Damage With My Full Glass Coverage? This Has Left Me In A Sticky Question And I Am Frustrated With Myself For Not Controlling The Situation At The Car Wash.
It is not a "claim" unless the insurance company pays out.
No. You haven't committed insurance fraud, you merely bought different coverage......... but.......If you now claim the glass damage that presently exists, your original $500. deductible will apply, not the new coverage. The new coverage will only apply to new damage.
Car Window Tinting?
I Recently Got My Windows Tinted, And On My Rear Window I Have A 3 Inch Dot Matrix. The Installer Did The Job Twice, Because I Wasn'T Happy With The Matrix Area The First Time. Some Tiny Areas Of The Tint Were Sticking To The Matrix While Most Of It Was Not. I Didn'T Mind That It Doesn'T Stick, But Wanted It To Look Even, So I Took It Back, But The Same Thing Happened.
I Did Some Research At Tintdude.Com And Was Wondering If Any Of You Knew If I Could Still Use The Glue Method Without Having The Tint Place Install New Tint...Because I Assume That Peeling Back Already Installed Tint Is Basically Like Peeling A Bandaid - It Won'T Stick Back On The Same/The Right Way.
I Would Like To Try The Vinyl If Possible, Just Not Sure What That Entails And Where To Get It, So If Someone Could Explain The Vinyl That Would Be Great.
If I would you I would take it back to the shop. You already pay them to do it.
