Car Window Repair vs. Car Window Replacement
You may already know that damage to your car window can prevent it from working properly — which means not letting your windows down to enjoy the breeze during Wichita’s crisp October days. However, you may be surprised to learn that repairing your side car windows often means replacing them.
While we make every effort to repair certain types of windshield damage, car window repair is not always feasible. This is because your windshield is made of laminate glass while most side car windows are made of tempered glass that breaks into small pieces with enough applied force.
Even if you were to try to make repairs to tempered glass, its overall structure would still remain weak and prone to breakage because of the way the glass is made.
Replacing your car windows is always the safer and longer lasting option.
