Burning questions about RV glass repair or replacement? Call us at 855-778-4527 and let our experts help answer them now.
There’s a lot of things in life we take on our ourselves when it comes to traveling. We get a flat tire; we change it. Time for an oil change? If we have the time to do it ourselves, we do. Sometimes things happen that we think we can fix ourselves to save time and money when it comes to our cars, RVs, and more.
When we get a windshield crack or chip in a window, we think we can replace it ourselves because of the information we find online. We see YouTube videos online detailing the process. We read blogs showing you step-by-step what to do to replace RV windows, but is that enough to get the job done right? Let’s discuss!
So, Can a Cracked Windshield Be Repaired Without Professionals?
Whether it’s RV windows or the windshield that’s been cracked, chipped, or outright shattered, replacing the damage is more complicated than buying a new window or windshield and popping it in. While those videos you see online or tutorials you feel you could follow make it seem otherwise, installing a new RV window or windshield is more complicated and should be left to the professionals.
There’s a variety of factors to consider when replacing a window or windshield in your RV, such as:
- RV windows and windshields aren’t as widely available as automobile windows. Relying on a professional to repair or replace RV windows means you’ll get your replacement quicker. As soon as they receive it, they can begin the installation process, and before you know it, you’re on the road again!
- Cleaning up the aftermath of an RV window or windshield issue can take a lifetime without the right tools. When glass reaches its breaking point, it shatters into tiny shards. While you may be able to get the more significant pieces, the right vacuums and tools can get everything left behind keeping you and your family safe from getting injured in your RV.
- Professionals will tell you outright if it’s worth repairing your RV windows or windshield. You may think a small crack or impact point can be repaired, but there could be hidden issues only a professional can see. If left unfixed, this could lead to more problems down the line for your RV that’ll cost you, even more, to get fixed.
Relying on a professional RV service to look at your windows or windshield and make the call on what should happen next will save you time, money, and frustration. While you may think you can do it yourself, you may miss something going on and cause more harm than good.
