When looking to replace a car windshield, many car owners look for the cheapest option they can find. Why does it matter who replaces your windshield? Installing windshields with superior products and methods may just save your life by choosing a shop with the right experience and product.
Are you aware that by having your windshield installed inaccurately, the windshield could come out of alignment and cause additional damage and harm to you and your passengers in the event of a car crash? It is very important to have your windshield properly installed and correctly sealed in place. This can mean the difference between life and death.
What should you look for in a shop that will make sure you and your passengers in your car are safe?
1) Is the shop certified?
2) Do they use original equipment glass?
3) Do they wear gloves when installing the glass? Grease from their hands prevents the adhesive from bonding correctly.
4) How long does the car need to sit before you are able to drive? The car should sit at least one hour and up to 12 hours depending on the situation.
A damaged windshield can be very inconvenient based off the time to repair and the cost involved. It is worth your time, money and future safety to make sure you use a shop that will not only use the right product but also has the certification and knowledge to correctly install your car’s windshield.
