Auto Glass Care
Keeping the glass on your vehicle in good shape isn’t just the law; it’s essential to keeping you and your passengers safe. Whenever you notice a chip, crack or break, seek the auto glass repair services of Glass Doctor® of Kalispell. We follow Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards (AGRSS®) to ensure the success of the repair, which generally takes 60 minutes or less to complete.
Auto Glass Repair and Your Windshield
Montana law states that windshields must remain free of obstructions, which include chips or breaks in your line of sight. Part of the reason for this is that a clear view is essential to keeping you and those around your vehicle safe when you drive. Another equally important reason is that windshields are a vital component of a vehicle’s safety restraint system and its overall architectural strength.
Part of a windshield’s job is to keep you and your passengers inside the vehicle in the event of a collision. If the glass has an impact, it’s more likely to break prematurely and affect proper airbag deployment. Furthermore, blemish-free windshields account for up to 60% of a vehicle’s architectural strength in a rollover accident and keep the roof from caving-in.
Because windshields play an essential role in your vehicle’s safety, Glass Doctor of Kalispell recommends that you make haste to seek auto glass repair services as soon as you notice any impacts, such as chips, cracks or breaks. Our glass specialists always opt to repair the impact when it’s a safe option to save you time and money. The techniques that we use for repairs follow the industry’s best practices to restore a windshield’s clarity and the vehicle’s structural integrity.
If your auto insurance carrier provider offers windshield coverage, let us know. We’ll gladly file the claim for you.
On occasion, there are instances when a windshield replacement is the safer, more effective solution. When evaluating your auto glass repair needs, we take into account factors such as type of glass used in the windshield and the impact’s size, location and age. When performing windshield replacements, our specialists take into account the technologies that depend on the glass, such as antennas and temperature sensors. As they work, the glass specialists protect these electrical components and match the quality of original equipment manufacturer (OEM) quality glass.
When you receive a windshield replacement from Glass Doctor of Kalispell, it comes with the G12® Windshield Road Hazard Guarantee. The guarantee covers the glass during the 12 months following its installation in the event that a normal road hazard damages it. If the glass receives an impact, we’ll repair or replace it free of charge. The G12 Guarantee does not cover the cost of labor, molding clips and installation kit. Exclusions apply.
