Import Auto Glass, located in North Highlands part of Sacramento Ca would like to help you negotiate the often slippery slopes of auto glass repair and windshield replacement, something that can turn ugly and frustrating when the company you contracted with doesn't show up, or leaves a mess when they leave. It happens a lot in our industry because there are no laws protecting the consumer from untrained and unprofessional repair technicians who do sloppy work and ignore you when your new windshield begins to leak.
Our approach is simple, honed over many years of leaving customers happy with our service. All of our auto glass shop technicians attend a sanctioned training school and must pass the safe installation certification test. Too bad the law does not require that, because it allows just anybody to get into this business. Demand credentials from the company that is doing your auto glass repair work. It's that simple.

Common Auto Glass Questions
How long does it take to install auto glass?
The process should take about an hour, and can often be done in half the time. Our Sacramento auto glass installers will come to your home, office or any location in Sacramento to complete the job, leaving you uninterrupted in your normal life. It is recommended that you wait several hours before driving the vehicle so the urethane has time to seal properly. Your auto glass technician can provide you with specifics.
Will my insurance go up if I file an auto glass claim?
A cracked windshield doesn't reflect your driving ability, so why should it have a bearing on your level of risk to the insurance company? Auto glass replacement falls under the comprehensive portion of your insurance rather than the collision category, so you can get a shiny new windshield and your insurance premiums will stay the same.
Consumer Guide to Windshield Repair & Auto Glass Replacement
What a Windshield is Made Of
Windshields are most often made of safety glass that will not easily crumble or fragment into loose pieces on impact—to protect the vehicle's occupants from further damage. Modern windshields are frequently made with two layers of curved glass on either side of a plastic laminate layer. The entire piece is then bound to the car using polyurethane.
Windshield & Auto Glass Repair
Repair is a popular option when the windshield chip or crack damage is not excessive. Many times repair specialists can repair cracks that have spread up to 6 inches long! In fact, many insurance companies even offer free windshield repair in lieu of replacement due to the cost savings. Repairing is more desirable because it keeps the original factory installation of the windshield. Repairing will also help the environment by preventing the old windshield from being thrown out.
A typical repair will cost $40-60 compared to several times more to get a windshield replaced.

Cracks are straight or crooked lines extending across the windshield. Cracks can extend through the front and back of the windshield or just exist on one side of the windshield. Cracks can grow, so they should be repaired as soon as possible.
Starbreaks are long cracks extending from a central point of damage. Starbreaks can grow over time and with continued driving, so they should be repaired as soon as possible.
Bull's eyes are circular cracks and fractures that look similar to a target of concentric circles. These can often be repaired, but probably won't disappear completely. If a large bull's eye is in the driver's line of sight, the windshield often needs to be replaced to ensure proper visibility for driving. Bull's eyes can develop cracks and starbreaks, so they should be repaired, even if they are not in the driver's line of sight.
Chips are usually small indentations in the glass. Chips do not extend completely through the glass.
