Differences Between Comprehensive and Collision Deductibles in Auto Repairs

October 27, 2016 at 3:44 pm

Most consumers are not aware of what their comprehensive deductible covers on their vehicle.  For example, did you know that most insurance companies fully cover a stone chip to be repaired in your windshield?  Probably not!  Your comprehensive deductible covers damages caused by something or someone other than the driver.  For example, if you park your car in your driveway and a tree falls on it during a storm, your comprehensive deductible will cover any damages to your vehicle that you were caused by the tree.  Some other common mishaps that are generally covered are vandalism (glass, tires, theft, paint scratched, etc.) and damaged caused by wildlife such as deer, turkeys, bear.  Also random acts of nature such as hail is also covered under your comprehensive deductible. Your Collision deductible covers damage caused by the driver.  If you are driving and hit something instead of something hitting you, your collision deductible would pay for the damages.  Most policies carry between...Read More >

5 major changes coming to windshields in the very near future

May 26, 2016 at 2:36 pm

Windshields, like most modern day items, are becoming much more innovative than ever before.  They are still serving their main purpose which contribute to safety, design, and sophistication, however in the upcoming years we are going to see a transition to this particular part of the vehicle that we have never seen before.  Modern day windshields are begin fabricated with stronger, thinner, and more lightweight materials.  This allows the glass to become strong enough to support the structural role, but still lightweight so that manufacturers can abide by the strict CAFE standards set forth by congress. Headlights and sun visors will become extinct. Windshields already contain a rain sensor, which will activate wiper blades when water is detected.  They also will change speed on their own depending on how hard it is precipitating.  The laminated layer between the two panes of glass also leaves more potential for other innovations.  In the future we will see the same photochromic dyes used...Read More >

New Technology in Auto Windshields

February 20, 2015 at 4:35 pm

Have you ever thought about plasma windshields? Imagine your vehicle could send small plasmic blasts to deflect projectiles from hitting your windshield. windshield repair nj Feb. 19, 2015 – WAYNE, N.J. — Have you ever thought about plasma windshields http://www.autoglassnj.com ? Imagine your vehicle could send small plasmic blasts to deflect projectiles from hitting your windshield. While this could not realistically stop larger objects from penetrating your glass the amount of damage to your windshield would greatly decrease. Even if the plasma could not completely stop the object from colliding with your windshield it would reduce the impact enough to keep the damage low. The plasma shield is based on Russian studies of plasma aerodynamics, which is the way ionized gas influences the airflow around an object and decreases the friction dramatically. You’re probably thinking ‘we are making things fly faster towards us’ but wait, the idea is that the plasma will only affect one side of the object causing...Read More >

Repair or replace your Auto Glass? That is the question.

December 16, 2014 at 3:51 pm

We have all been there.  We’re driving down the highway minding our own business when a dump truck carrying tons of gravel pulls out in front.  We slam on our brakes to slow down and then all of a sudden…BAM!  A rock hits our windshield.  We scan the window to find where the rock landed.  When we don’t see any chip, we sigh with relief and carefully attempt to pass the truck.  However, what happens when there is a chip? The most important thing to know is to get the chip taken care of as soon as possible.  Most auto glass chips can be repaired if they are smaller than the size of a quarter. A windshield repair doesn’t require removing the windshield which allows for a speedy process.  Furthermore, it is a significantly less expensive option. Most auto insurance companies will usually reimburse a windshield repair as well.  American Mobile Glass will even contact your insurance company for you....Read More >

What type of urethane is underneath your windshield?

September 18, 2014 at 8:13 pm

The first thing people think of when talking about urethane in a windshield application is drive away time.  All urethane manufacturers have safe drive away times, which depend on many factors including humidity, temperature, and size of the urethane bead.  While safe drive away time is absolutely a very important factor when deciding what type of urethane to use, it should not be the ONLY factor that is used. The two very important factors that are often overlooked and misunderstood about urethane is non-conductive and high modulus.  With the technological advances that have been made specifically to automotive glass, there is now a requirement from vehicle manufactures to be sure to include these properties in their adhesives.  You may be asking yourself, “why should I care about these?” or “what do these have to do with my vehicle?”  Read on to find out why you need to know about these, and how using the incorrect urethane can affect your windshield...Read More >
