RV Window Repair
Tempe, Arizona may not be the tourism hub of the country, or even the state, but there is plenty to do here. From indoor fun like Arizona Mills Mall, LEGOLAND and the Tilt Studio, to the great outdoors – Tempe Town Lake, Desert Botanical Garden and Singh Garden, there is something for everything.
But what happens if you’re a Tempe local and have been there, done that?
Why not bring out your RV and drive out of the city to other state attractions; like the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Mogollon Rim, or Saguaro National Park! With Tempe being well-connected to the freeway, this is a great idea for a family vacation!
Obviously, before driving long distances in the RV, it is important to make sure the vehicle is safe to be on the road; and one of most overlooked points in vehicle inspection is the condition of the windows.
The window glass of any vehicle in Arizona is subjected to a lot of wear and tear due to the extreme weather and the debris flying onto the car due to constant road works and the desert landscape. If there is even the smallest scratch or chip on the window, it can lead to bigger problems and you don’t want to be on a road trip when these problems crop up.
Before driving out of the city, bring you car in to Diamond Auto Glass and our expert technicians will fix the problem.
Why is repair of RV windows important?
The invisible barrier between you and the outside of your car is a very important one. It protects you from all that is outside – the dust, the noise, the heat / cold, the rain, UV rays and so much more. It deters theft of interior accessories, if not the entire car itself and in most vehicles, the windows along with the windscreen are an important structural component.
The windows of your car are also a very important safety feature, with most car manufacturers using heavy-duty tempered glass to minimise the risk of shattering, which can injure the passengers inside, or even eject them in case of a major collision.
What happens when windows are damaged?
Whether the windows have a tiny chip, or a small crack, you must treat them with the seriousness they deserve.
The seemingly minor damage can become big very quickly. The damage can expand to form a spider web of cracks, especially with the weather conditions of Tempe, where the difference between minimum and maximum temperature can result in glass expanding and contracting, further exacerbating the problem.
Apart from compromising the structural safety of the RV, these cracks reduce the safety offered to passengers in case of a crash. They can facilitate break-ins and affect the weather protection as well, which could mean rain is seeping into the car without you noticing.
How to solve the problem?
No matter how small and unimportant the damage to an RV’s window may seem, you must have it repaired. In case of the minor issues, the crack / chip is filled in with clear resin and then treated with UV rays. However in the case of more serious damage, the entire pane of glass will need to be replaced.
