Determining whether your car’s side door window should be replaced or repaired ultimately depends on two factors: cost and condition. Let’s explore each a little more closely so that you have a good idea of how an Only 1 Auto Glass technician decides whether to restore your window or install a replacement window in your vehicle’s side door.


When a Window Should be Replaced

If you bring your vehicle to an Only 1 Auto Glass center and the window is smashed to pieces or only a partial window is left, then we will replace it. In some cases, a window will need to be replaced because the tracking system on it is damaged although the window is still intact. It depends on the make and model of your car. Regardless of why the window needs to be replaced, an Only 1 Auto Glass technician can replace the entire window and/or the tracking system and give your vehicle a fresh start.


When a Window Can be Repaired

If the side car window has a few chips or a small crack, then repairing it may be an easier and more affordable option than replacing it. The extent of the cracks or chips is the deciding factor. For instance, a small chip requires little effort to fix and does not compromise the safety or stability of the window. A window filled with large cracks, however, provides no safety or stability, even if it could be repaired. It is our responsibility to look out for the well-being of our clients. This is what governs every decision we make.


Cost is a Factor

In most cases, replacing a window incurs a greater cost than repairing it. But this is not always the cases. A window can be reparable, but it may cost more to fix the damage than to invest in a new window. Consult with a window expert at an Only 1 Auto Glass technician to find out which option is better for you. Our goal is to find the most cost effective, permanent, and safest solution for each of our clients. We the most advanced equipment combined with an experienced, knowledgeable team that can determine the best course of action to take when restoring your damaged window.
