Auto Glass Replacement
Most recent vehicle models incorporate tempered glass to ensure passenger safety. Unlike the windows in your home, tempered glass shatters into small, blunted shards when struck. As a result, there are no sharp edges that can injure your car’s passengers. Tempered auto glass cannot be repaired due to its unique shattering properties, so our team will replace your tempered glass quickly.
On your vehicle, tempered glass is likely found in:
- Sun or moon roof
- Back Windshield
The team at Glass Doctor of Charlottesville, VA, starts the replacement process with expert consultation and accurate price assessment. Our company is a member of the Auto Glass Safety Council™, so all of our specialists adhere to safe car glass repair and replacement best practices. We ensure replacement auto glass aligns with the original equipment manufacturer standards and we use only the best adhesives.
