A GUIDE TO SUNROOF GLASS
Sunroofs also known as moonroofs, are located on the roof of the vehicle and are designed to let fresh air and light into the passenger cabin. The mechanism used to open the sunroof is either fixed so that when opened, the sun roof vents, or operable, so that the sunroof slides and retracts onto the roof or beneath the interior headliner. Sunroofs can be either opaque, transparent or feature a visor to block light from the passenger cabin. Sunroofs and moonroofs can be manual or electrical but not all are movable. The operation and mechanism that moves the sunroof is the differentiator between the various models.
At Sunroof King Houston we repair and replace shuttered sunroofs glass for all makes and models for a variety of vehicles. We carry over 20,000 sunroofs, including OEM Original installed Sunroof Or Aftermarket Type. However, when damaged, it is important that any glass repair or replacement is undertaken to the highest possible standards to preserve the aesthetic performance of the roof as well as the structural integrity of the vehicle. Sunroof King’s highly trained technicians are specialists in the repair and replacement of sunroofs with our workmanship guaranteed for as long as you own the vehicle.
FACTORY SUNROOF VS. AFTERMARKET SUNROOF
Identifying factory over an aftermarket is fairly simple. Our specialist will typically identify factory installs using our in-house database. Identifying an aftermarket install is a bit more complicated Due to the variety of aftermarket sunroof manufacturers and their various part/assembly options.
Aftermarket sunroofs are installed after the manufacturing of your vehicle, which requires a technician to cut a hole in your roof.
What type of sunroof do I have?
Just like any other auto glass in your car or truck, it is important to know what type of sunroof or moonroof is installed in your vehicle so that if it breaks or is damaged, the proper parts and glass are re-installed and get you back on the road quickly.
- Pop-up sunroof: A panel of glass that tilts upward on a hinge, in which the tilting action provides the ventilation; can be manual or electric and is usually removable
- Spoiler sunroof: A combination of the pop-up and sliding sunroof, the tilting-up action opens the sunroof and then slides back on a track along the roof; depending on the make of the vehicle, the glass panel will self-store either above the roof or below, between the liner and roof proper
- Panoramic sunroof: A multi-pane moonroof system which tilts and slides open further than a spoiler sunroof because the multiple panes that form one unit when closed, all retract upon slider track and stack against one another when opened; designed to open both the front and rear cabin of the passenger cabin
- Solar sunroof: Opaque sunroof glass inlaid with photovoltaic solar panel cells that power the inner ventilation from stored solar electricity, saving power in the battery of the vehicle
- Top-mount: Sliding sunroofs that store along tracks above the roof outside of the vehicle; the advantages of this type of sunroof is the extra headroom inside the car

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FACTORY SUNROOF & AN AFTERMARKET SUNROOF
A factory sunroof (also referred to as an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) sunroof ) is a sunroof that is installed in the vehicle during vehicle production and before it is delivered to the new car dealership. An aftermarket sunroof (also referred to as a retrofit sunroof) is a sunroof that is installed in the vehicle at anytime after the vehicle is produced. Most typically an aftermarket sunroof is installed by a restyling company that deals directly with the car dealership.
