Windshield Replacement San Antonio TX
Timely windshield replacement is essential to your safety. According to the Auto Glass Safety Council, a windshield makes up to 60% of the structural integrity in a rollover accident, although the percentage varies depending of the car’s make and model. USA Auto Glass performs a series of steps to ensure the proper replacement of your windshield.
- The windshield is carefully removed to avoid damage to the paint and bonding surface, which can cause leaks and corrosion.
- A windshield matching the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) quality is selected for installation.
- Only Auto Glass Safety Council (AGSC) approved adhesives are applied to cars during the windshield replacement.
- The new windshield is replaced following procedures recommended by the AGSC. The recommended one hour drive-away time for passenger safety is then observed, allowing the adhesive to cure for safe drive away time.
Windshield Repair San Antonio TX
Windshield repair is an inexpensive alternative to windshield replacement that can stop chips and cracks from spreading.
USA Auto Glass recommends repair over replacement because:
Convenience: USA Auto Glass specialists typically perform windshield repairs within an hour.
Inexpensive: Windshield repair is far more economical than replacing the whole windshield.
Insurance Advantages: Because of the economic advantages of repair vs. replacement, many insurance companies will waive your deductible and pay for the windshield repair.
Environmentally Responsible: Repairing your windshield keeps your old glass out of a landfill, where it will stay forever.
To properly repair your windshield, USA Auto Glass specialists remove debris from the impacted area, sometimes using a drill to create a clean passageway for the repair resin. A special resin is then injected into the damaged area using a tool that attaches to the surface of the glass. After injection, the resin is cured and polished to a clear finish.

Truck Sliders Replacement San Antonio TX
Sliders are found on trucks and are also known as truck slider windows. Some types of truck slider windows are made of safety glass. These auto glass windows are held in place and secured by metal or plastic latches inside the vehicle.
When making a comparison to other types of auto glass, truck slider windows take the place of a rear windshield. This provides a rear view port for truck drivers whose passenger cabins are shorter than the typical passenger vehicle. It also acts like a rear windshield in that the panes are fully contoured to the shape of the vehicle with aluminum frames, providing structural support to the roof of the truck cabin.
Truck sliders are typically sealed in with rubber seals that are air and water tight to keep out the elements.
Truck sliders Features
Sliders are designed for each vehicle’s make and model. Designs comes from the number of window panels and how many slide open to vent the truck, also how the panes are secured and latched.
Tri-panel truck sliders often have one window panel that slides open to vent.
Four-panel truck sliders have two windows that slide along the track, what’s known as duo-venting truck sliders, this provides the widest possible opening.
The type of tempered or safety glass used in truck sliders can be personalized as well, allowing drivers to choose from solar privacy glass which helps reduce interior heat build-up or privacy tints.
