Your windshield is an important part of your vehicle’s structural integrity and aesthetic appeal. It protects you from severe weather conditions and debris, while supporting your car’s frame.
A windshield repair service comes in handy in unforeseen circumstances when it may not be safe for you to continue driving with your damaged windshield. A reliable service would come to your desired location and carry out the job efficiently for you.
Below are some tips for choosing the best windshield repair service:
Ask your insurance carrier if it covers windshield repairs. If you have a comprehensive insurance plan with or without deductibles, then all of the repair costs (or most of them) will be covered by it.
Focus on quality
Make sure your company of choice uses high-quality glass and adhesive materials for your windshield repairs. If your insurance covers these costs, you probably want to get the most out of them and not compromise on the quality of your windshield. Cheap quality materials are not durable or long-lasting, and it is best to avoid them.
Materials like urethane
, for instance, are not of the highest quality and should be avoided in repairs. This is because they don’t include the chemical components essential to keep the windshield intact, and they make it susceptible to breakage. Cheap urethane can also cause water leakage easily. Make sure you discuss this with your windshield repair company.
The processes used
You need to ensure your company has licensed and trained technicians to do the job. Moreover, the company must also abide by all the safety measures mentioned in the AGRSS (Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standard
) and be accredited by it. This is vital when it comes to windshield repairs and these accreditations are also recognized by the ANS (American National Institute
). Companies that don’t adhere to relevant safety standards can carry out improper windshield repairs and these can be detrimental to your safety while driving.
You might also want to make sure the company is time efficient. You may find yourself needing the windshield repair service when you’re at the mall, stuck in traffic, or in a parking lot. Your company should be able to cater to all your requirements in a timely manner and not interrupt your daily schedules.
