Auto Glass — Side Window and Rear Window Replacement in Denver
Your vehicle has several different types of safety glass. Usually, your front windshield will be composed of laminated glass. Tempered glass is used for the side window and rear window. Tempered glass in the sides and rear serves a different function, but it is also incredibly strong and compressed. Because of this strength, this glass can withstand the everyday scenarios of a driver— like shutting a door, running over a speed bump or pothole, fender benders, and minor collisions— without shattering.
You might require a side window or rear window replacement if it has been broken or shattered due to an accident or other circumstances. It is important to get this fixed as soon as possible because it will leave you exposed to the elements and pose a danger for you as you drive and even expose your car to theft.
The Role of Your Side and Rear Windows
Side window replacement and rear window replacement are more common than windshield repair because the glass is not as thick as the front windshield. There are reasons for this. Part of it is that the front windshield plays a different role in the structural integrity of the vehicle. The laminated glass of your front windshield will also be much more difficult to break from the inside if a person is injured and trapped within the vehicle. Even so, the side and read windows of your vehicle are still reinforced and very strong, though if you are involved in a fender bender or if a vehicle strikes you from the side or the rear, you are more likely to see the vehicle shatter.
How Long Does Side Window Replacement or Rear Window Replacement Take?
This process depends on your vehicle and the nature of the damage, but usually, the process will take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour. When you bring your car in for auto glass repair you can expect our technicians to first inspect the damage carefully and possibly remove the door panel to access remaining glass. We then clean the area by vacuuming any debris and glass from your vehicle. Our experts then install the new glass, test it, and put the door panel back on.
The process is straightforward but our automotive glass experts understand the importance of a proper and secure installation. That’s why we guarantee all of our work and make sure that your vehicle is safe to drive again and your glass is properly placed and secured.
