It sure has turned off cold these last few days, it is interesting how the road crews will put down sand and gravel even before ice forms. These extra little rocks on the road create the perfect recipe for getting a broken windshield.
So what should you look for when having a windshield replaced?
- When you get a quote that is cheaper than anyone else it is cause for concern. Low cost means that low quality urethane adhesive is being use to install the windshield, which can result in a weaker windshield. At Glass Doctor of Heart of Texas, we only use Sika MoveIT urethane to provide the quickest save drive away time for you and your family while not compromising on the structural strength of your windshield.
- Does the glass shop keep records of the products they use? The AGRSS standard requires a shop to keep track of all products used. Just think, six months after a windshield is installed the glass manufacturer discovers that a batch of primer was formulated wrong. If they do a recall on the batch, and the shop does not track these lot numbers, how will they know if your replacement needs to be redone? Yes this happens each year, make sure your repair or replacement is done at a shop that is listed on Safe Windshields.
