Repairing a Windshield

broken_winshieldMany people wonder if they should buy a new car or get a used one. When all is said and done, I think the decision boils down to what you can ultimately afford, and which purchase will give you greater peace of mind. If you don’t have much money, then you may consider getting a used car because of the affordability. A lot of the time you can get a nicer model car that is a few years old, for the same price or cheaper than the base model of a new car. I know this is what my husband did. He bought a high end model used car and loves it. So if you are looking for more amenities then a used car may be the way to go like he did. However, buying used obviously has its own risks associate with it. You may end up paying more over the course of the car’s life because of mechanical issues you could run into. You don’t necessarily know how its been driven or taken care of which doesn’t leave much peace of mind. Chances are a used car won’t have a warranty so any repair work will come out of pocket. That being said you will want to do your homework and make sure you have researched well and asked good questions before you buy any used car.

On the other hand, other individuals might prefer to buy a brand new car like I did. Personally, I had the means to afford it, and I didn’t want to deal with the unknowns that are associated with a used car. However, something that may happen to your car whether it is used or new is needing to repair a windshield. A common reason why your windshield might need to be repaired is because a rock hit it, and now there’s a crack. No matter how small the crack or chip might seem, you will want to repair it right away. Small cracks tend to widen and turn into larger cracks before you realize. This is especially true during the Winter when it is so cold outside. The glass of your windshield is highly dense so over time any crack will naturally widen. Therefore, it is best to fix the issue right away. Depending on the severity of the crack, you will find that you either need to repair or replace the windshield. Hopefully, it is minor enough that you can repair it, because replacing your entire windshield can get pricey. Often on repairs your insurance will waive the deductible since they are saving money by having you repair the windshield and not totally replace it. There are auto safety norms and regulations however so sometimes you have no choice but to replace it.

One option of repairing your windshield’s crack is by using PRISM which stands for pre-resin injection suspension method. This is when resin is injected into the crack with or without a vacuum. Depending on the size and depth of the crack, this method can take a few minutes or hours. If you are needing a referral of where to purchase a repair kit for your cracked windshield check out Tri Glass Inc. They have some great products that will aid you in fixing your windshield in no time!
