Fender Mender Auto Body, here in Fort Lauderdale, FL, is here to have your back for quality auto glass repair. Our trained experts use their deep understanding of both auto glass and specialty tools to repair or replace your car glass correctly first try. So what is auto glass and what makes it so special? Glass is generally sand that has been melted together from temperatures around 2800 degrees Fahrenheit. However, the glass from your kitchen cups and your car differ tremendously. The glass that is in your side windows and most to car rear windows are cooled in a special process in order to make it into tempered glass. This tempered glass uses tensile forces to both give it a harder quality, than regular glass, and to make sure it breaks into very small pieces. These small pebble-like bits are useful because they are so small that the chances of cutting oneself from these are smaller than larger sections of glass. The windshield of your car is different and sticks together after impacts, rather than falling into pieces. This safety glass was created from an accident in 1903. A scientist accidentally dropped a flask and noticed it broke but did not shatter. The glass in your windshield comes from that accident and is composed of three sections to allow it to stick together. Your windshield is really a sandwich of two glass panels around a layer of a plastic/vinyl-like material. Due to its ability to stick together, most windshield cracks can be repaired but not all. Whatever your need may be, whether it be a replacement or repair, the auto body service experts here in Fort Lauderdale, FL are here to help you.
The experts at Fender Mender Auto Body will initially identify the type of labor needed to get your auto glass to tip-top shape. Most side windows completely bust and need replacing. The experts here have years of experience and will quickly perform any replacements for you. Windshields, on the other hand, can have a variety of different options when it comes to handling the issue. Small pebbles or debris can often leave a little bust and the experts here can often repair the window without needing to completely replace it. The use of their expertise and specialty tools allow them to suck the air out of cracks and replace it with high strength resin. This process makes the damage invisible and returns the window back to its pre-accident condition. If the window needs replacing, our experts will handle that for you as well. We work on every make and model and our experts are capable of replacing the windshield no matter the car. We use high-quality adhesive and tools to carefully remove molding and glue that holds the old windshield then properly replace it.
