Weed Wacker Broke my Side Door Glass | CPR Door Glass Repair

 

20130709_090034Be carefull of your surroundings when using a weed wacker. Weed wackers break all types of windows, if the window or car door glass is within 30 feet of a weed wacker than it is very possible that the high speed of the whipping wheel and string of a weed wacker can propel a small rock fast enough to break a window on your car or house for that matter.

In this picture is a side door glass of a newer dodge durango that became victim of a flying rock thrown from a weed wacker, the cost of this particular window was around $250.00 only because it was a special type of glass called laminated glass.

Laminated glass is made just like a windshield with two layers of glass laminated together to form one window. The lamination is to protect you from flying objects comming into the car or keep a thief from breaking into a car.

Not to many car manufacturers these days are putting in laminated windows for the side door glass, it seems to me that they are just trying it out for now to see how things go. Me personally

Windshield Replacement – When Is It Necessary | CPR Auto Glass Temecula

Windshield Replacement

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Depending on the size of the crack in your vehicle windshield, you may be able to have it repaired instead of having to get a windshield replacement. Small cracks or nicks that are in the middle of the windshield can usually be repaired. You should not wait too long to have the crack or nick repaired, otherwise you will likely need a windshield replacement. Over time, small cracks can spread, expanding to a length where they can no longer be repaired. A spreading crack also puts the driver and passengers at risk. As the crack spreads, the entire integrity of the windshield degrades, and where the windshield would have, in a repaired state, prevented a flying object from breaking through the windshield, a long crack will have weakened the windshield to the point where a flying rock will shatter the windshield and send the rock, and flying glass, at the vehicle’s driver and passengers. Worst yet, a weakened windshield will resist impact less when something, or someone, inside the car hits it. A minor injury could become a major injury or worse.

Getting Windshield Replacement Done Right

While more than a quarter of the time a windshield replacement is unnecessary and a repair is sufficient, when you do need to get a windshield replaced there are a number of factors to keep in mind. First, if you decide to do it yourself realize that breakage during installation is a common occurrence. Even if you go to the local wreck yard and get a windshield, there’s no guarantee it’s going to get home and into your vehicle in one piece. Given the time a DIY job takes, and the risk, consider using a professional, and certified, windshield replacement specialist.

ARG certified windshield replacement specialists will know exactly the windshield needed for your vehicle, and proper installation will be guaranteed. Most windshield replacement companies offer same day appointments too. And they will be able to tell if your windshield can be repaired or will need to be to be replaced. It’s important to protect yourself, your family and your vehicle and get the right job done the right way. A poorly done repair or windshield replacement can put you and your family in more risk than if the windshield had been left alone. Make sure the person doing your windshield replacement is ARG certified. Your windshield provides important protection.

Tickets Being Handed Out For Cracked Windshield’s | CPR Auto Glass Repair

IMAG0269

Last month Brian Johnson’s car got damaged in the hale storm.

“I was trying to find shelter so my car would’nt get dammaged,” Brian said.

The storm that tore though left many people like Brian with cracked windshields and broken windows.

“It’s been nuts,” Mark Williams said.

Just a week after the storm and the used car lot is full of damaged cars still.

“That’s probably gonna take a couple of weeks for a auto glass shop, to get the work done. So now everybody is getting backed up,” Williams said.

Which is why some are forced to drive around town with a cracked windshield.

“It’s the biggest hail storm I’ve seen in the 30 years I’ve been here,” Williams said.

But with such a back up in service: is it legal to drive a car like this?

“The only window that you actually have to have on your car is a windshield,” Cit Prosecutor Jeff Briggs said.

In other words, if your window is cracked, but not broken in the drivers view, it’s legal. But that doesn’t make it safe.

“Big spider webs in front of your face, where really you’re looking through a fish eye at that point. That’s dangerous,” Briggs said.

Briggs said when it gets to that point safety is a big concern.

“There needs to be tickets handed out for these windshields that are broke in the drivers view. Cracks on the windshield may be as bad as using a cell phone while driving, it obstructs driving abilities,” Briggs said.

Cheap Windshield Replacement Quotes | CPR Auto Glass Repair

Windshield Cancer A Cheap windshield Replacement can be just that, CHEEP.

Lots of auto glass repair shops that do other specialties like window tinting,  home and commercial glass repair, are not always up to date when it comes to windshield replacement.

Windshield replacement today has a lot to do with the crash test they preform on your vehicle before hitting the road for sale.

The safety standards of your windshield installation today require that your windshield is to have a urethane bonding system to your vehicles pinch weld, this system combines the windshield strength to part of the vehicles structure.

If someone is to miss a few important steps on the newer automobile, than later down the road your windshield can become a problem.

Common problems on a windshield replacement these days is rust, and being this close to the beach don’t help these situations. You may not know your windshield even has rust under it for years, maybe not until its time to replace your windshield again.

What causes this rust to start is getting those cheap windshield replacements done, when a windshield gets replaced sometimes you may scratch the paint under the windshield upon removal.

I you don’t address the scratch with the proper care, the next time it rains these areas behind the windshield will rust.

A rusty pinch weld is a week pinch weld, eventually that rust will creep under the urethane bond and cause the windshield to leak.

Repaired CancerWhenever CPR Auto Glass Repair runs into one of these rusty pinch-weld problems we like to wire wheel it out and apply some rust inhibitor then finish it with some pinch-weld primer on the to prevent the rust to come back and help the windshield to seal properly to the automobile.
