Arizona is state that is known for its hot, dry weather. Most of the state does not see sleet and snow at any point. One TeleGlass team member in particular remembers the day it hit 122 degrees. A day he was riding his bicycle, in blue jeans. But we digress. Though slippery, wet road conditions are rare, it is imperative to drive safely in Arizona due to extreme sun rays on windshields. Since the sun beats down relentlessly on cities such as Phoenix and Tucson, auto glass becomes sensitive to sunlight and a windshield repair could be in your future. Sand storms can cause extreme windshield pitting, something that can cause poor visibility. Or perhaps you decide to take a road trip out to Grand Canyon National Park or Tuba City and you notice a small chip in your windshield. After seeing the sites, you return to your car and notice the once small fissure has morphed into a large crack that has spread across your entire automobile glass. This is not an uncommon auto glass repair in Arizona. Hot, dry temperatures can change a tiny glass repair into having to purchase full replacement glass. The sun is also responsible for glare on the windshield. This causes many accidents for drivers all over the state. In areas such as Sierra Vista or Green Valley, sun glare can blind a driver and cause a serious accident. In The Grand Canyon State, it is best to drive cautiously all year round. But what happens if are in need of a glass repair? No matter how hot or dry the weather or the region, TeleGlass is here to provide the safest and highest quality auto glass repairs for the state of Arizona.
Arizona Auto Glass
Door glass, back windshield, quarter glass, windscreens, and more. What does it all mean? Do I have tempered glass or safety glass? How can I tell if my windshield has extra features? It has been many years since auto glass was created and by far one of the best enhancements made to the automobile. In general, the glass on the sides and back of your car are tempered auto glass, meaning they were specially treated to break into hundreds of tiny pieces, keeping you from being exposed to dangerously sharp edges. It's not to say you cannot still get hurt from broken auto glass, but it is much safer today than it was in the past. Read more about auto glass on our auto glass and windshield pages.
Your windshield is made differently than any other piece of auto glass. This piece of auto glass is comprised of two layers of safety glass with a layer of composite material in between. Modern windshields can include a myriad of options, including rain sensors for your windshield wipers, a heated windshield for those in cold climates, antennas to support your GPS, and more. The most important part of your windshield remains the laminate in between the layers of glass. Your car is much safer today because of this lamination, which keeps the glass together, and allows repairs to be made when the damage is just a small chip or crack.
Arizona Auto Glass Insurance The state of Arizona has the standard insurance coverages in regards to autoglass coverage. Coverage for an autoglass loss would fall under the comprehensive coverage portion of your personal auto policy (PAP). In Arizona, you can opt for comprensive coverage with no deductible. However, there are no state mandated waivers for deductibles in relation to auto glass. If you have a PAP in the state of Arizona, and you have not opted for the coverage that includes the deductible waiver, the deductible amount you selected under your comprehensive coverage would apply.
From Flagstaff to Tucson, Phoenix to Kingman, Teleglass is the solution to all your auto glass replacement and auto glass repair needs.
In all states, the most commonly used Personal Auto coverage is Physical Damage coverage. Listed under Physical Damage coverage are Collision coverage and Comprehensive coverage. Collision coverage covers your Personal Auto for physical damages as a result of colliding with an object. An example of a collision loss would be an insured auto colliding with another auto and physical damage to either party occurred.
Comprehensive coverage typically covers most other forms of losses; fire, theft, vandalism, flood, car windshields, or any other car window replacements you might need. When you need glass repairs to your auto, your Comprehensive coverage is the coverage that applies. Comprehensive coverage is an optional coverage, but it is also typically less expensive than Collision coverage to have on your vehicle so many insureds nationwide choose to have Comprehensive coverage.
