Why Windshield Replacement Matters?
The plain and simple fact is that shoddy glass work will end up costing you thousands to repair and leaves your car unsafe to drive.
Rust. Rust, and corrosion are the enemy when it comes to prolonged success of your auto glass installation. Inevitably, small scratches are made along the windshield pinch weld area, when the broken glass is removed. When left untreated, these scratches eventually rust and weaken the steel in important structural areas of the vehicle, while destroying the paint from underneath. It costs thousands for this to be repaired. In extreme cases, a windshield cannot even be replaced safely. Skilled, well trained auto glass technicians know how to repair these scratches properly before installing the new glass, thus preventing rust from ever growing and becoming an expensive, time consuming problem. Not to mention annoying wind noise and water leaks. Leaking water may also damage fuses, headliner, interior parts, and sensitive electronics underneath the dash.
Here is an example of a badly damaged windshield pinch weld. Over time small scratches have rusted under the urethane glue surface and under the paint as well. You can see how the rust just flakes off under minimal pressure. This windshield was barely even held in.
Here is the same pinch weld, stripped down to clean metal. I use a wire wheel attached to a drill to blast off the rust and corrosion. The surface is then cleaned perfectly and ready for new automotive grade primer.
Here you can see a newly cleaned and sealed pinch weld. This area is now safe and secure and will hold the windshield safely in place with no further issues.
Your vehicle's windshield and glass parts keeps you and you passengers safe and inside the car during a wreck. Your car's windscreen provides a safe shield for you and your passengers. When you windshield is damaged by chips or a crack, it can greatly increase the risk of serious injury during a crash. Getting damaged glass replaced or repaired as soon as possible is so important.
Protects you and your passengers from road debris.
Your vehicle's windshield plays a huge role in the passenger airbag being deployed properly. Most modern cars now come witn passenger side airbags as a standard option. It is crucial to have a strong, solid windshield for the passenger air bag to deploy properly. The air bag is designed to be supported by the windshield. If you have any cracks or imperfections in the glass, your windshield may fail when you need it the most.
Your car's windshield is an extremely important part of the over all structure of your vehicle, especially in the cas of a roll over accident. Your windshield accounts for up to 70% of the roof's strength in the case of a roll over accident. Again, any cracks and imperfections will weaken the glass, and other depending structures to a critical and dangerous level.
