Glass Doctor of Houma is proud to be a member of the Auto Glass Safety Council™ (AGSC), and our specialists are trained to repair auto glass using only industry best practices. We also consider all the recent advances in glass technology like humidity and rain sensors, temperature gauges, and radio antennas whenever we repair or replace a windshield, ensuring that the clarity and integrity of your auto glass is as good as new.
Windshield and Car Window Replacement
In some cases, damage to your windshield is too severe to be repaired, in which case our specialists will install a replacement using only original equipment manufacturer (OEM) quality glass and industry-standard adhesive. Typically, glass with cracks longer than three inches, cracks that have splintered near the edge of the windshield, or damage directly in the driver's line of sight must be replaced for your safety.
Among our many auto glass care options, the team at Glass Doctor of Houma is also trained to replace the tempered glass. Commonly used in modern vehicles as a safety feature, tempered glass is designed to break into small, safe chunks upon impact, protecting the occupants of the vehicle from being injured by sharp glass. Tempered glass is most likely used in your vehicle's passenger windows, back windshield, sunroof, and quarter glass. Because of this safety feature, tempered glass cannot be repaired, and must always be replaced if it is damaged.
Auto Glass Protection
Every windshield we replace comes with our exclusive Windshield Protection Plan. Choose to upgrade your guarantee for a small fee. Package options include labor costs, new windshield wipers and an application of Hydrophobic Coating glass protectant. A single coat of Hydrophobic Coating gives you better visibility during rain and sleet. Hydrophobic Coating treatment protects your glass from scratches, water stains, weathering, and environmental pollutants.
