Owning a car demands quite a bit of maintenance efforts from you. Glass replacement is one of the most important ones. If you’re delaying replacement, this could not only mean a risk for the passengers but also other vehicles on the road.
Understandably, many myths related to car glass replacement float around. In the interest of your safety and those on the road, it is important to have the right piece of information about windshields, their importance, and when replacement becomes important.
In this article, we bust the top 5 myths surrounding glass replacement.
Myth: I can replace it myself
Fact: This can be one of the most fatal glass replacement myths out there. Many of us may feel it is okay to replace the windshield by ourselves because of the trouble of going to a repair shop. Beware, you may end up worsening the condition. None of the DIY solutions available online are going to help you fix this by yourself, even if you buy the right kit from a store.
So, if you aren’t a professional and don’t have the appropriate tools, please leave it to the experts. If you do try replacing glass on your own and end up installing it improperly, you are only worsening the problem!
Myth: A crack isn’t something to worry about and driving around with one is fine
Fact: Many vehicle owners think a small crack or a chip isn’t that big of a deal and tend to ignore it. Remember, you cannot let this slide without at least assessing the area. If you notice anything, it is advised that you consult a glass replacement company and get it fixed. Simply applying tape or some solution you saw on a commercial can pose a threat to the vehicle’s safety.
If you’re waiting for things to get worse before you can get them fixed, it’s only going to end up costing you more money. Worse, you could find yourself in an accident. Never take a much-needed replacement lightly, especially in the case of a crack. This is not only life-threatening but is also technically against the law since you are required to have an unobstructed vision of the road while driving. In case of a collapse, you will be endangering passengers and maybe even others on the road.
Myth: Replacement takes ages to get done
Fact: Of course, glass replacement is no easy task and requires attention from professionals. However, this doesn’t mean that your vehicle will be gone the entire day.

Myth: Glass replacement is expensive and won’t be covered by insurance
Fact: Whenever repairs related to automobiles arise, people immediately assume that it will cost a fortune. Indeed, auto glass replacements are not all that cheap but that does not mean the prices shoot through the roof. If you research and select a company that knows what it is doing, you can get the glass replaced for a reasonable price. Insurance, on the other hand, can assist you because service providers have tie-ups with insurance providers which give you access to a trouble-free cashless service, insurance claim process as well as a warranty on the replacement quality and technique.
Myth: It isn’t necessary to get a replacement immediately
Fact: It is common for vehicle owners to have this attitude about glass replacements. However, in the case of an auto glass issue, it is necessary to have experts look into it immediately. Additional impact, temperature changes, bumpy terrain surfaces, the normal rattling of the glass, or even weather conditions can worsen the damage and create a bigger rigmarole for you. Therefore, get your vehicle looked at if there is any replacement needed. Overlooking this will only increase your costs by deteriorating the condition, it can even cause harm to you and the passengers in the car.
