Windshield Repairs in Portland Pennsylvania
Your car's windshield is not like other, more mysterious car parts. Although we do not give windshield much thought, they are extremely important.
Many do know that windshields are created of a number of layers of glass. It features two layers of very special composite glass with a laminate in between the layers.
The center layer of the windshields are is normally made from a vinyl plastic element. In simple words, it is a very tough plastic. The vinyl plastic layer has glue on both sides, sticking to the outer layers of glass. This is the basis of how laminated safety glass is created. It will stop a windshield from shattering into dangerous glass fragments.

How Much Do Double Pane Windows Cost?
I Want To Replace My Single Pane Windows With Double Pane Windows. The Windows Open At The Bottom And Slide Up. The House Is Old (Built In Late 1800S) And Is Wood Frame. I Am Ok With Using Vinyl Windows. Probably The Sashes Would Need To Be Replaced As Well Since Some Of The Pulleys That Keep The Windows Open Don'T Work Anymore. Can Any One Give Me A Rough Estimate Of The Cost Of The Windows And The Cost Of Labor To Install Them?
This is much like asking someone how much a car cost. Do you want a Kia or a Bentley?
Price's are literally all over the place, just as in my example...if not a little exaggerated.
For the most part, everyone else here is correct. The entire unit will be replaced, and your old windows and all of it's accessories will be replaced.
What you have are called "single hung windows". Since you are replacing them, buy double hung windows. This means that both the top and bottom will open. This is very handy, and adds very, very little to the cost. In fact, most companies only make the window this way.
Here is something else while I am on the subject that is very handy. Make sure the windows have a tilt-in feature. You slide the window down and there are two latches on the top of each panel that allow you to lower the top down on each panel. This is GREAT for cleaning the outside of the window from the inside (so no more excuses for not cleaning them!). It also gives you the option of having much more airflow, should you want it, as both panels can be opened much of the way.
Lowes and Home Depot sell ok windows. Going back to my analogy, your getting a Chevy or Ford. In the window world, spending a little more buys you a lot! Getting a Cadillac is not much more, and is a world of difference.
Superior Windows, Milgard, Certantied...these are some good names to look out for. We very much prefer Superior.
Keep in mind the news coverage lately about Home Depot's installations. Check out your particular area first. Make sure you get a list of houses you can see no matter who you buy from. All good shops have a list of houses they have done that you can drive by and see there work. Ask for photos before and after, check out there displays to see exactly what you are getting, and verify warranties! It is very important that the actual I.G. unit (Insulated Glass or the actual dual pane) is warrantied against fogging! I can't stress that enough.
Also keep in mind that a small shop may cost a little more, but the hands on treatment and individual care can be much more valuable when the job gets going.
Is It Legal For A Finance Company To Add Any Repair Bills That Were Made On My Vehicle To Price Of My Car ?
Ok So I'Ve Had This Car For Three Months Now And The Car Was In An Accident And Was Pronounced A Total Loss... The Finance Company Is Now Saying I Owe More Than I Was Aware That I Owed On The Vehicle. So, Like Two Weeks After I Got The Car It Was Already Messing Up On Me Like The Driver Window Wouldn'T Let Up, The Motor Seat Wwouldn'T Go Back Or Forth, The Abs Light Wouldn'T Go Off, The Traction And Entire Brake System Was All Screwed Up Basically, So I Called Them And Told Them That I Was Just Going To Bring The Car Back Because It Had To Many Problems But They Offered To Repair The Car For Me Because The Manager At The Finance Company; Dad In Law Had A Repair Shop So I Agreed To Let Them Fix The Repairs For Me Not Knowing That They Were Going To Add The Repairs To The Loan On My Car Im Thinking They Were Doing It Out Of The Kindness Of There Cold Hearts Not!!!! Now Im Stuck With All These Extra Fees And The Insurance Is Not Trying To Pay For It And I Dont Want To Be Stuck Paying The Finance Company For Fees I Wasnt Aware Of In The First Place....Should I Get An Attorney And Go To Claims Court????
You don't need an attorney. The finance company did absolutely nothing wrong. All you need to do is pay for your mistakes.
How Much Does It Cost To Get Window Tint Put On?
I Have A 1997 Accord. Do They Take The Old Tint Off As Well? Thanks!
The price for a car tint can vary dramatically from the cheapest fly-by-night shop from $100 to the luxury tint shop's $400 or more. For each of these situations, the price can be considered REASONABLE. What a REASONABLE price is depends on many factors:Your Car Type
Quite simply, a small percentage of cars are harder to tint than others. When getting a price quote, a Tint Shop always asks you for the make and model of your car. This isn't to see how much money you have and charge you up the wazoo. (Often it is with less reputable tinters)
Tinters know which cars take more time to tint properly. Some cars with steep and curved rear windows like the Volkswagon Beetle or Corvette tinters often charge a premium to tint. Additionally, each additional square foot of window on your vehicle requires more window film to tint. This makes tinting a SUV or station wagons cost more than sedans.
Type of Tinting Film
Just like comparing a Hyundai to a Porsche, there are wide performance and cost differences in tinting film. The cheapest tinting film can be many times less in price than more expensive film, but you get what you pay for.
Cheap film may look good at the beginning, but they can fail to block the summer heat, fade, turn purple, or bubble soon after installation. Higher quality window film such as fully-metallized sputtered or deposition window films like SolarGard HP films offer both advanced performance and a lifetime warranty. These films are worth the higher price.
Unacceptable Car Repair?
We Have A Lease Car Through The A Popular Government Backed Disability Plan, The Car Was Damaged By A Neighbour Which The Insurance Company Were Not Worried About And Then The Window Cleaner Scraped His Ladder Down The Side Of The Car, There Was An Insurance Claim Put In And The Disability Plan Had The Car Sent To Their Repair Centre, This Place Is Owned By Them, I Was Placed In A Suitable Car Whilst This Happened, I Got The Car Back After A Week And You Could Clearly See The Primer Under The Paint Where The Car Had Been Repaired, They Accepted This And Had It Back In For Another Week, I Got The Car Back Again And Now It Looks Like The Whole Of One Side Of The Car Has Been Painted Badly, There Is Too Much Laquer And It Is Slighly Dull, Not At All Like Before The Damage, The Gagage Sent Out A Top Man From The Paint Company Who Agreed It Was Not Repaired Correctly Again!, The Car Is Back In, As An Apology They Have Given My A Very Expensive Mercedes Car Whilst They Repair Again But Where Do I Stand With Rejecting The Car And Having It Replaced If The Repair Is Not Correct This Time. As I Have Said This Is Not My Own Car But The Lease Is For Another 2 1/2 Years And I Cannot Live With A Substandard Car For That Time.
Tell the insurance company- not the repair shop, that the repair is sub-standard and is not acceptable. If they do not help you, contact the leasing plan, and tell them of the situation.
You are right in not accepting this- even though the paint does not affect the operation of the vehicle- as a lessee, you are responsible for the condition/value of the car when you return the vehicle.
