With so much auto glass in our vehicles these days, chips or cracks in your windscreen glass are not the only damages that can occur.
Smashed sun roofs and broken rear or side windows are also very common.
A broken car window is a cause for concern due to weather conditions and the increased security risk now that the car’s interior is exposed.
Many faced with such an issue decide to patch or mask the damage with plastic or thick tape to cover their broken window. While this may prevent light rain from getting into your vehicle it is by no means a long term solution.
Without the protective glass window in place, any temporary fix that is applied to the vehicle leaves it prone to theft and water damage which can ruin the upholstery.
