What is your windshield type? Does it have laminated glass? We have come to realize that if your windshield glass is laminated, there is a possibility that it will not completely shatter. If it is not laminated, then it shatters in the case of collisions or being hit. The type of your windshield determines whether your windshield requires being replaced or repaired.
We want you to be sure when you choose a service and ensure that you understand your options so that you are able to afford the service you opt for. Different manufacturers give different quality windshield glass, and that gives a wide range of options that come at different makes and prices. We leave it up to our clients to choose their preferred glass for replacement.
We are however aware that many clients may not be conversant with windshield glass and what to look for when choosing the replacement glass. We take it up to ourselves to give sufficient information about each type to our clients so that they are able to make an informed decision on the best replacement windshield glass.

When people ignore small cracks and term them as manageable end up costing them even more that having the small crack fixed. These small cracks grow into bigger and more costly cracks and end up shattering the whole glass due to the weather conditions interacting with the small crack. These are:
In the event that there is a strong storm, the small crack on the windshield is expanded into a very big crack that costs you more because bigger cracks are not manageable and require to be replaced. Windshield glass that is not laminated is vulnerable to hail and can be easily damaged whether it had a crack or it is whole. In this case, we are able to replace your glass at an affordable price and give you an option of whether to have a laminated glass or just normal glass.
Most people will, however, prefer normal glass because it is cheaper. We want our customers to be able to enjoy our services and recommend that you use the laminated glass, it will cost a little more but will serve you longer than the normal glass will.
Glass expands and contracts depending on the temperature changes. No one can control or predict this changes and it is, therefore, important to know how to deal with this changes. Different glass types react differently to temperature change. We advocate that our clients and potential clients visit us as soon as they notice a crack on their windshield so that we can be able to assist them in repairing it effectively.
A crack that is not repaired or that has been poorly repaired is going to be affected by temperature changes. When it is too hot, the crack expands and since heat weakens glass, the windshield can completely break and attract even more charges than proper repairing would have taken. When it is too cold, glass is also weakened and susceptible to breakage. A drastic change in temperature from hot to cold or vice versa will shatter the glass. When a glass is whole, it is less vulnerable.
Pressure changes are enemies of cracked glass, however, slight the crack is. When the pressure impact exceeds that of the surface, the glass will break. High speeds for example in a cracked glass exceeds the outward pressure which is not being exerted back from the inside, the pressure forces itself through the crack leading to a much bigger crack and eventually the whole glass breaks.
