Windshield Repair at Windowwelder.com
Usually, unless we have trouble seeing through it, most of us take the windshield for granted. But if it is damaged, do you know how to get the proper repairs to it, or let alone the right and acceptable replacement?
A seemingly compatible aftermarket windshield may lack the same light transmission characteristics as the original glass. This difference may affect the operation of rain sensors and other devices and the data they report to the body control modules of your vehicle, thereby in turn causing these devices to malfunction.
If a replacement windshield that lacks a rain-sensor part is installed on a vehicle equipped with a sensor, it is most likely that the replacement will not function as desired, since the sensors are mounted within the windshield and the signals travel through the glass. The same type of glass can also affect the car’s air conditioning. For instance, solar-control glass allows less heat in, for which the vehicle design was made to have an air-conditioning system in lieu with the light and/or heat entry thereby increasing efficiency and proper power distribution. An example of this can be seen with certain Chevy Lumina vans. When these vehicles were built, they came with a proprietary PGW coating called Sungate. Other manufacturers made this windshield for the Lumina, without Sungate coating, that affected the performance of the air-conditioning system and comfort level of the vehicle occupants. Too often, vehicle owners and insurers make choices based on price, but owners ignore the windshield assembly system which of course is compatible with their vehicle’s power options.
These and more of similar reasons lead to the fact that Windshield repair is at times inevitable. Windshield replacement might be the easiest and quickest option that comes to so many people’s minds, even with a small repairable crack in the windshield, but with such reasons as those seen above, obviously one has to take care while deciding on when to replace the shield.
Of course, specifying that original equipment, from the manufacturer of the vehicle is vital and worth mentioning when replacement is opted for. If one misses out this, then a compromise to the proper systems functionality might arise. Of course originality comes in handy, and the price to do such a replacement will be felt in the pockets of the intended windshield replacer.
