Windshield auto glass replacement is best done by professionals. At Lucken Auto Glass, certified technicians can carefully assess your damage to determine what needs to be done to keep you and your passengers safe from harm. In some cases, chips and cracks may be bad enough that you’ll need a full windshield replacement. Case in point– if the chips or cracks are in the driver’s line-of-sight and/or along edges and corners, then a windshield replacement should be done. Typically, if there’s a crack that’s bigger than six inches then a windshield replacement occurs.
While most insurance companies would prefer to pay for just a repair versus a replacement, Lucken Auto Glass can help you understand your options as well as help you deal with your insurance company to get the best result. Keep in mind that not all windshields are created equal; luxury vehicles’ windshields may have features which make them cost more to replace than ones on economy type vehicles. Generally, most people have insurance that covers windshield replacement.
Time is of the essence; windshield replacement is a matter of safety. Your vehicle’s windshield plays a key role in the structural integrity of the overall vehicle and if it’s not in proper condition then it could cause you and your passengers harm. Driving over a speed bump or pothole can worsen the problem. Also, extreme temperatures (both cold and hot) can turn little chips into big cracks. The bottom line is this: window chips and window cracks aren’t good. Window repairs and/or replacements need to be done for the safety and peace-of-mind of drivers and passengers.
Lucken Auto Glass’ certified technicians replace windshields all the time; they can do the job quickly and efficiently so you’re back on the road as soon as possible with a nice, new windshield and no worries.
