Auto glass repair is a normal part of vehicle ownership. From small chips and cracks to a fully smashed-up windshield, accidents will happen—and your auto glass is one of the most easily-damaged areas of the vehicle. While you might hope for less expensive windshield repair, there are times you will need a full auto glass replacement. Thankfully, windshield repair companies can replace the glass on almost any vehicle. Read on to discover the special circumstances where you might require custom-cut auto glass.
- Unusual Vehicle
For non-typical vehicles, especially work machines such as tractors or oddly-shaped promotional vehicles, you won’t be able to use standard-cut auto glass. Instead, you will need custom auto glass to be measured and cut.
- Obsolete Part
Do you love to restore vintage cars? Then you will no doubt need custom auto glass at some point. The more rare and valuable your vintage car, the more likely that it will be difficult or impossible to find a suitable glass replacement. Custom auto glass that is perfectly cut to the manufacturer’s original specifications is a great alternative to the original vintage glass.
- Shipping Time
Even if you miraculously find a glass replacement for your vintage vehicle, you will likely have to wait weeks, maybe even a month, for the part to ship to you, and it will no doubt cost you an arm and a leg. Instead, opt for custom auto glass replacement. It will fit just as well, and can be installed the next day!
