Windshield replacement is a safety service, not a product. The windshield serves as the 3rd most critical component in SRS (self restraint system). In many of today’s vehicles, the side and back windows serve as support in the event of a rollover. An improperly installed windshield can fly out during a collision or roll over. Many passenger side airbags bounce off the windshield when deployed so an improperly installed windshield can make an airbag useless. Auto glass accounts for 60% of the structural strength for today’s vehicles. So even if the other SRS systems work properly, passengers can be injured or even killed in a collision with improperly installed automotive glass.
For this reason it is all the more important to call the new superhero in town, The Glass Guy. We use only the best, most advanced materials available on the market. When you call The Glass Guy you are assured that your vehicle will meet or exceed the factory requirements rather than barely meet DOT standards. If you have had someone else replace your windshield or any other glass in your vehicle, your vehicle may need extra work done to restore it back to factory standards or higher.
Our highly skilled technicians are often called on to fix auto glass installations where others have installed them improperly and are falling out. Sometimes we come across vehicles which have begun to rust due to improper previous installations. We have the equipment and training to fix this both in-shop and on the road. If you have a leaky windshield it is important to get it fixed as soon as possible so your vehicle doesn’t continue to erode and require a more costly repair. If rust is present, it will continue to get worse until it is fixed.
