Are the side windows or windshields on your 5th Wheel or Trailer damaged? The auto glass specialists at Valley Glass have years of experience repairing and replacing chips, cracks, and scratches on large and small windows. We can repair or replace the windshield and side windows of Class C RVs.
Our skilled auto glass technicians possess the expertise and background necessary to provide you with the quality of service you deserve. We have been in the business of repairing broken and damaged windows on vehicles of all sizes for many years. We use our collective expertise to guarantee that the windshield and side windows of your RV are repaired or replaced correctly the first time.
We know that RVs have distinctive shapes, sizes, and designs that differ from other vehicles. That is why we offer services that are designed to safely and efficiently repair your RV glass so you can get back on the road.
There are several different kinds of side windows that are typically found on the majority of RVs: insulated glass units (IGUs), original equipment manufacturer (OEM) windows, and laminated glass. Installing and repairing each of these windows requires different skills.
Laminated Glass Replacement Panels
For increased safety and security, RV windshields and side windows frequently feature laminated glass that is virtually shatterproof and fog-proof. All laminated glass replacement panels can be completely replaced by us.
OEM – Aftermarket Replacement Windows
We can repair and replace side windows and windshields on RVs made by the majority of manufacturers. Additionally, we offer aftermarket windshield replacements that can be installed on RVs made by any variety of manufacturers.
Replacement Insulated Glass Units (IGUs)
A broken window repair can be a quick, cost-effective alternative to original equipment manufacturer (OEM) or aftermarket windows. If your RV’s windshield is not severely damaged enough to necessitate a window replacement, you may be able to consider this as an option.
RV Glass Replacement Process
RV glass installation is not something you should do on your own. Large pieces of glass are used in RVs, and handling them can be dangerous. If these windows are not installed correctly, they could fall off while you are driving. Additionally, improperly installed windows could cause water damage to your RV, which could result in rot, mold, electrical issues, and other problems.
We have the tools and equipment needed to safely install a new windshield on your RV. Although each RV model may be slightly different, we follow an overall process to remove your current glass and install a new one.
We begin by taking measurements of the glass and take into account all of the manufacturer’s details. Because RV glass is very specific, it is essential to order the exact replacement glass. Since glass can take up to a few weeks to arrive, it’s important to get it right the first time. Unless we have the glass in stock at one of our locations, we will set up a date and time for you to bring in your RV.
During the actual service, we will take the molding off the windshield. This needs to be removed correctly in order for the new piece to fit securely. We then remove the existing windshield by breaking and removing the urethane seal. After this, the frame is thoroughly cleaned and prepped. The new piece of glass is also cleaned and stripped of any oils and residues. We then lift the glass using suction cups and install it on your RV. To seal the window, a urethane sealant will be caulked around the edge of the windshield to keep out water and wind and hold the windshield in place. To protect and secure the glass, the bead will be reinserted into the frame. Finally, after cleaning the glass once more to get rid of any contaminants from the installation process, we will check the installation to make sure it was done right.
Repair Damage Right Away
If the windshield of your RV has any scratches, cracks, or chips, you shouldn’t wait to fix it or replace it. Driving an RV or motorhome with a cracked windshield can be risky and harmful to you and your passengers. Even the tiniest cracks have the potential to shatter your entire windshield, which can cost more than a windshield repair. Bring your RV to one of our Valley Glass locations to ensure your RV glass is fixed in a timely manner.
