Massachusetts is a state with all four seasons, and with all the changes in weather come a different type of auto glass repair. In spring, April showers may bring May flowers, but in areas such as Boston or Cambridge, or the outlying suburbs of Newton and Framingham, accidents occur frequently in the rainy weather. Slippery wet roads and rain beating down on windshields are worse conditions for a driver than winding through The Big Dig. Spring gives way to summer, and residents feel the pull of the sunny beaches of Cape Cod or the white sand of Martha's Vineyard. Though these regions are breathtakingly beautiful in the hot months, dangers do lurk on the road for drivers. Sun glare is a common, made worse if you have a chip, crack, or other damage to your windshield.
Massachusetts is one of the premiere states for autumn foliage. Drivers come from all over the world to see the leaves, and to cause major traffic jams and accidents on the roadways in the Berkshires. In addition, the leaves themselves become quite slippery in the wet weather, perhaps adding in a dash of snow and plenty of pre-winter sleet. The fall elements are reasons for car crashes and automobile glass replacements. When winter strikes the region, areas like Worcester and Springfield are pummeled by snow and suddenly you are in need of a windshield repair for a cracked, frozen windshield and you don't know what to do.
No matter the weather or the region, TeleGlass is here to provide the safest and highest quality Massachusetts auto glass repairs.
Massachusetts Auto Glass
Vent glass, back glass, quarter glass, back sliders, and more. What does it all mean? Do I have tempered auto glass or safety auto 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, 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. The windshield 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, heated autoglass 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.
Massachusetts Auto Glass Insurance The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has standard insurance coverages in regards to autoglass coverage, but with a twist. In Massachusetts, there is a state mandated waiver for deductibles in relation to auto glass. You can however opt for a $100 deductible, it is uncommon, but entirely possible. Coverage for an autoglass loss would fall under the comprehensive coverage portion of your personal auto policy (PAP). If you have a PAP in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and comprehensive coverage your deductible would be waived. It is a common misconception in this state that regardless of coverage each insured is entitled to a free windshield replacement regardless of coverage. The waiver only applies if you have purchased comprehensive coverage.
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has a resource page for all insurance related questions you may have. (Insure Mass) TeleGlass works with auto glass replacement companies that use OEM parts from such manufacturers as PPG, Pilkington, LOF, and Carlite to name a few. From Pittsfield to Boston, North Andover to Falmouth, 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.
