3 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Windscreen Repair

You spend most of your time driving looking through them, but we bet that you don’t spend a lot of time thinking about your car windows. We want to help you gain some knowledge about your car windscreen repair. This means that you’re prepared for whenever you need to finally think about them – probably when you need a car window repaired!

Here are 3 things that you probably didn’t know about car window repair.

Genuine or Aftermarket Glass Replacement

1. We Can Fit Genuine or Aftermarket Glass

Quality Fit Windscreens can replace a broken windscreen with genuine or aftermarket glass. Which should you choose?

First, let’s talk about the differences between genuine and aftermarket glass. Genuine is rather self-explanatory. We work with a manufacturer to obtain exactly the same style of glass as was fitted when your vehicle rolled off the factory floor. Genuine glass is preferred by the manufacturer for a number of reasons. The main reason being that the glass was designed for the vehicle. That could include structural integrity and the ability to perform in various situations (4×4, work sites etc).

Aftermarket glass is essentially a copy. The dimensions are the same but they may not be an exact duplicate. So, you might find that your windscreen might not look exactly the same (tint, colour) and it may not be able to perform as well as genuine glass. Think of it like your smartphone. If you crack the glass, you can take your phone back to the retailer, or you can visit a kiosk in a shopping center for half the cost. The aftermarket might not be 100% but it’s still perfect for the job.

Now, back to your car. An aftermarket windscreen could be perfect for regular driving and repair will be only a fraction of the cost. On the other hand, car enthusiasts generally prefer to replace their windscreen with genuine glass. At Quality Fit Windscreens, we can install either genuine or aftermarket windscreens and windows, and we can definitely help you choose what’s right for you.
