Every day, car owners bring their vehicles to Glass By Tony for windshield repair. Although each circumstance is unique, the process of replacing the windshield is the same. Below we go over a detailed description of how windshield replacement works and what you can expect.
What Factors are Involved in Windshield Repair?
When determining whether a repair or replacement is needed, we look at all the factors involved and then make a decision. Some of these factors include:
● Size/Depth of Damage – Any small crack or chip that is contained will warrant a repair. More extensive damage will require replacement.
● Type of Glass Damage – Different types of damage range from chips and tiny singular cracks to spider web cracks, a series of cracks or breakage.
● Location of Windshield – The location of the damage is essential. Will it obscure the driver’s view? Is it in an area of the windshield that is vulnerable such as the edge?
How Does Windshield Replacement Work?
After we assess the damage to the windshield, technicians will work to install the new windshield. The objective is to place the glass in the frame so that there are no leaks, wind noise, or gaps between the glass and the frame. Glass By Tony guarantees against wind noise, water leaks, and loose moldings for as long as you own the vehicle. We use either factory or OEM glass products that are designed for your vehicle make and model. Our skilled specialists can typically complete the job within an hour.
We will remove all of the old glass, apply an industrial grade adhesive to the mounting area, clean the glass, and place the new windshield into the frame. The resin takes about an hour to dry once we complete the job. Any stickers that were attached to your previous windshield will be applied to the new windshield if they are not damaged. Once the adhesive dries, we remove the protective tape, and you are ready to go.
