Side window Repair
Car Side Window Repair vs. Replacement?
Side windows serve more than one purpose. They protect the driver and passengers from weather conditions and road debris but also offer structural support to the car’s door frame. Car structure depends on these windows and their ability to absorb force and keep the car structure together, in the case of an accident.
The trouble with side windows is that repairing them is often not an option. Front glass or windshield consists of two layers of glass bound together with a layer of plastic in between. This makes them harder to break, but also allows for technicians to repair one of the layers if the other is still intact. The damaged layer can be filled in with bonding properties, and once dry, it will become solid, relying on the layer underneath to keep it from caving in due to wind pressure. 404-458-9019
Unlike windshields, car side windows are, in most cases, made out of a single pane of tempered glass. While lighter and easier to make, side windows aren’t designed to withstand large amounts of force and usually break under low amounts of force. Sometimes the glass is only scratched on the surface, and such damage can be filled in, but if it is cracked the whole way through, the best option is simply to replace the whole window.
