Have you ever looked at a little chip in your windshield and wondered how long you can let it go for before you need to replace it? Chips may start small, but they quickly develop into cracks, spiderwebs, and can smash the entire glass depending on the amount of pressure applied to your windows. This can be particularly true in the state of Arizona, since extreme temperatures can cause glass to expand and retract, forcing cracks to get bigger, or smash entirely.
While it might seem less expensive to wait it out in case you get another chip or crack in your windshield, there are cost-effective solutions that can help you repair or replace your auto glass.
Repairs Are Simple
Most reputable auto glass companies will offer you a free estimate for parts and labor. If you have a small chip or crack smaller than a dollar bill, chances are that your glass can be repaired, which is inexpensive. These repairs are quick and easy, and cost very little.
Replacements Tend to Cost More
If your entire piece of glass needs to be replaced, it will cost more than a repair. The process requires removing your entire piece of glass that’s in the car, then properly disposing of it and cleaning any glass around the area. A new piece of glass is then installed and sealed.
Most glass takes a while to properly seal, so we always recommend waiting at least 30-75 minutes before driving your car. If at all possible, giving your car 24 hours to sit will give it the best shot at properly sealing.
For newer cars that have cameras attached to the glass, the cameras need to be calibrated. This comes at an additional expense due to the training and tools required to ensure all of your safety devices are working properly.
