Residential Window Repair and Glass Replacement Windows are in almost every home, vehicle or building. They let the outside be seen, block the weather, and can be a great focal point, as in a big picture window. Most windows are made of glass. There are different types of glass for many uses. Windows protect and add beauty and interest to any building. Damage to glass happens. It can be a crack in a car windshield, or a broken window pane. When glass is broken, there is a choice that must be made, to replace or to repair. In some cases repairing is a great option. In the case of a car windshield, it is much less expensive to repair than to replace. Even in a building, decorative or security glass may be cheaper to fix than replace. One thing to consider before replacing a broken window is how bad or big the break is. The smaller the break, the less expensive it is to fix. With auto glass breakage, if repairing, should be done right away. Auto glass chips and cracks can become worse in a split second due to hitting a bump in the road or even temperature change. In most states, it is against the law to drive with a sever windshield crack or break. Some auto insurance policies will cover the cost to repair a cracked windshield, without the need to pay a deductible. If the choice is glass replacement, this too should be done in a timely manner. If household or security glass is damaged in any way, most likely the best choice is to replace the glass. When replacing the glass, a good glass service provider will insure it is replaced using equal or better quality than that of the broken glass.

Always compare the cost of replacing verses repairing broken or cracked glass. Depending on the use and quality of the glass, replacing may be the best solution.
