It’s unfortunate when something happens, such as an auto accident or storm damage. However, these things can and do occur, and can take a toll on your auto glass. As a driver, it’s good to know a little more about your auto glass to get everything fixed properly. Very often, small cracks or “dings” in your windshield can be repaired by a minor patch or another fix, depending on the impact. Your side windows (if broken) typically require full replacement as they are tempered glass. To learn more about custom tempered glass replacement in Sammamish, turn to Joe’s Glass Co. for all of your needs.
The reason the glass panels are different is that they are made differently and have a different construction. Your windshield is primarily made of laminated glass, which is thick to withstand strong force. Your side and passenger windows are made of tempered glass, so if there is an impact, they usually shatter immediately. This is meant to be more safe, as they should smash into the consistency of rock salt, so passengers are unharmed. Unfortunately, this means that they cannot be repaired but only replaced.
