Ecofriendly and environmentally conscious statements might seem overused today, but their actions continue to be important. Take the example of windshield recycling, which is enormously difficult because of the following:
Wasted energy and the release of greenhouse gasses into the air when a new windshield is produced are other considerations. The production of one windshield is equal to the energy necessary for conducting 10,000 repairs. Also during the manufacturing process, emissions of combustion by-products (sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen oxides) and high-temperature oxidation of atmospheric nitrogen are released into the air causing additional harm to the environment.
All of the above is why GlasWeld continues to do their part promoting ways to lower carbon footprint. Do yours, by promoting windshield repair instead 400 of replacement whenever possible.

We have all experienced it. You’re driving down the road and all of a sudden a rock hits the windshield creating a chip in the glass. What most people don’t know is that the majority of these fractures can be repaired, if caught in time, keeping repair costs to a minimum and keeping glass out of our landfills. In addition, many insurance companies waive comprehensive deductible charges when the customer decides to repair the windshield instead of replacing it. Both parties win by spending less money on a repair.
Windshield repair is a permanent solution to an age-old problem. Chips happen and they can be easily repaired at a minimal c 400 ost and with a decent profit margin that can add to your bottom line. And in today’s tough economic environment, windshield repair is being recognized by many different industries, such as detailers, carwashes, lube shops, and auto dealerships as a way to positively impact their businesses with an additional service offering. Windshield repair is a great first choice over replacement for a variety of reasons.
