Windshield Repairs in Portland Pennsylvania
Your car's windshield does not belong with the mysterious, under hood components. Although we do not give windshield very much thought, they are quite crucial.
Windshield glass is a kind of laminated glass. They are created of 3 layers, two outer layers of composite glass and a middle laminate layer.
The inner layer of the windshields are is usually made from a vinyl plastic element. In simple words, it is a very strong plastic. The laminate serves as a sticking board for the inner and outer layer of glass. This is the basis of how laminated glass is built. It will defend against a windshield from shattering into harmful glass fragments.
Windshields installed in a manufacturing facility setting are done so with robots, in a tightly controlled manner. The fit and moulding is very tight. This is because of the computerized alignment and the accuracy of the robots. Learn more about Portland chip repair from your local repair professional.
Whenever there is damage to a car's windshield, it will need to be fixed as soon as possible. Due the tight installation procedure as described previously, the very best course of action is to have the repair done on the original windshield, in place. Usually this is possible if the damage is a little chip, starburst or crack. This is not feasible if the crack has elongated, if the chip is in the driver's field of vision or the chip is wider that a coin.
If detected early enough the bright side is that a simple chip or little crack can very likely be repaired by do-it-yourself methods. Even though this is an option, we still suggest that these simple repairs be tackled by an auto glass specialist.
Chip repair may look like such a small-scale issue, many individuals will ignore it. Tiny chips that are dismissed can turn into large cracks. We see this in outside temperature swings. If this takes place, you will be taking a look at a windshield replacement instead of a simple chip repair.

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.
