Cracked Windshield? 4 Things to Know Before You File an Auto Glass Claim

If traveling down the highway seems more risky than it once did, it’s easy to see why. For one thing, there are more of us on the roads than ever before. We’re also driving at faster speeds. Of course, there’s a price for all of this. Not the least of which is the risk of damaged windshields. When you factor in road construction, city congestion, and rush hour, you have a recipe for rock chips, pitting, cracks, and worse.

The fact is, auto glass may be safer than ever before, thanks to manufacturing safety methods and improved engineering—but no glass is impervious to cracking, pitting, and total breakage. So what do you do? Call your insurance company, of course. But how do you know if you’ll really be solving all your auto glass problems?

Here’s how to do your homework before you deal with the insurance company and the auto glass repair shop.

Windshield Wounds: Are You Hurting or Helping Your Windshield?

The things your windshield encounters are as varied as dirt and rocks to insects and birds. Most windshields act as protection, but chips and cracks can be just as dangerous as flying objects and insects. Even small chips and cracks can lead to major structural damage and accidents.

Most drivers assume they have what it takes to fix a minor chip or crack, and while some do, others damage the windshield beyond repair. Although it might seem like an easy DIY project, fixing a windshield takes expertise and precision. When it comes to dealing with your damaged windshield, here are the do’s and don’ts.

Your House of Glass: How to Keep Your Family Safe

With glass structures everywhere, your home can be a dangerous place. Mirrors, glass-topped tables, windows, showers . . . it’s everywhere. And if glass breaks, the damage may not only be to the glass itself. Because of the sharp, jagged edges, these breaks can result in damages to your home and to your family members or pets.

Did you know that there are certain types of glass that are safer than others? If you don’t already have tempered glass installed in your home, you may want to consider it.

What Is Tempered Glass?

Tempered glass, also known as safety glass, is glass that has been modified through a heating and quick cooling process. In this process, the glass hardens and becomes 5 to 10 times stronger than glass that is not tempered.

What Our Clients Say

Hidden Gem

I had 2 windshields replaced on my previous car at a different glass company. I went back there and got an estimate for this windshield but thought I would get a second estimate from Central Glass. I am sure glad as it saved me over $140. This is now my glass company of choice.
