Repairing Windshield Damage

Windshield Damage With pothole season comes window damage (i.e., chips, shatters, complete replacement). Here are some important facts that drivers should be aware of in the event that they need their windshield repaired or replaced:

There are four elements of a quality windshield replacement.
A professional technician, the right glass, the right adhesive and a warranty.

Not all auto replacement glass is the same.
A properly fitted windshield reduces the likelihood of wind noise, leakage and appearance problems.

Always ensure the technician who worked on your vehicle clearly defines the safe drive-away time.
This information should be obtained as part of written instructions to the owner, which can include pre-inspection results and the type of glass, primers and urethanes used.
