Damages to Auto Glass
Many types of damage to auto glass, such as small nicks and blemishes,
can be repaired without the need for replacement. Repairing such minor
problems assures that small cracks don't spread, restores the
structural integrity of the glass, and improves visibility and
appearance. Some insurance companies will cover the cost of windshield
repair as preventive maintenance.
Many localities have laws designating the maximum level of tint
permitted on auto glass. This is to insure that drivers are able to
see through it without impairment, but such legislation also ensures
that law enforcement is able to visually examine a vehicle's driver
Glass technology continues to evolve in response to consumer demand.
Motorists have expressed the need for better acuity, sound, and
safety. New molds and designs utilizing plastic compounds offer
increased security, and also allow for greater creativity in car
design and windshield shapes. As technology continues to improve, auto
glass is molded into more streamlined shapes, allowing gas consumption
and vehicle efficiency to improve.
