Services Available from Glass Repair Companies
Almost everyone has been stuck behind a semi-truck or, even worse, some kind of truck used in construction. One of the worst scenarios is the dump truck full of rocks and dirt without so much as a tarp to keep debris from flying out of the truck bed and smacking into your windshield. There is no doubt that trucks are responsible for a good portion of the windshield cracks and chips that plague Americans. In the aftermath of the rock assault on your car, the best thing you can do is call a reliable auto-glass repair company like Lizard Auto Glass.
Dealing with Insurance
When it comes to windshield repair, chances are you will want to do business with a company that is either recommended by your insurance company or will do business with your insurance company. When it comes to finding a company that can work with your particular insurance, the first thing to do is double-check whether your policy does indeed cover windshield repair. In most cases, it will because insurance companies know it is much cheaper to repair than replace a windshield. In most cases, finding out if the insurance company covers repairs is as easy as a phone call. More than likely, your insurance company’s number is on your insurance card.
When You Need a Replacement
If you are unfortunate enough to need your entire windshield replaced, chances are your insurance company will have you pay a deductible. How much that deductible is will depend on your insurance company and your specific policy. While windshield repair is easy and can be done very quickly, windshield repair is a bit more complicated which makes finding a reliable glass repair service essential. In most cases, your insurance company will have some suggestions for service providers. You are not, however, usually obligated to use those recommendations. If you have a glass repair and replacement service that you prefer, you should be able to use that service provider. For more specific information, contact your insurance company.
The Magic of Window Tinting
Another reason to find a great glass repair and replacement company is if you want your car’s windows tinted. While most people associate tinted windows with obnoxious teenagers and criminals, the truth is there are a lot of responsible reasons for getting your windows tinted. One of the reasons to get your vehicle’s windows tinted is to keep cool and reduce the amount of gas you use. It is no secret that homeowners see a decrease in energy bills when they tint their windows but did you know that the same thing happens in vehicles? Cars and trucks use more gas when the air conditioner is on which means that if you can keep the interior cooler via window tinting, you can also save on gas.
The second reason to tint your windows is that it can save your vehicle’s interior from the damaging effects of UV rays. Tinting your windows can keep you from having to reupholster and can even increase the resale value of your car should you chooses to put it on the used car market later down the line. The third reason is closely related to the second: tinting your windows can keep the sun out of your eyes! If you have ever tried putting those suction-cup sun shades on your windows you know they are more likely to fall off and knock you in the head than keep the sun at bay.
