Aren't all auto glass replacement companies the same?
Over the past couple of years, the auto glass industry has changed dramatically and not for the better. We have worked in the glass business for over 26 years and have never seen so many improperly installed windshield as we do now.
There are a lot of auto glass companies in the Hillsborough, Manatee, Pinellas and Sarasota counties with no integrity; these companies cut corners and use inferior products so they can be the lowest rate out there. This puts you and your family at risk. They also use these sub-standard practices when charging your insurance company for OEM products when inferior or used glass is installed. This results in a higher loss rate on your policy. One example of such practices is the use of cheap Chinese manufactured glass. There is a reason why 65% of all recalled products originate from China.
Proper installation is as important as the quality of the materials used. Many of these substandard companies have a complete disregard for proper procedure and windshield preparation when performing an installation.
For example, not prepping the area that the windshield adheres to correctly will cause the mental to rust in a short period of time. This can cause water leaks down the road. Even worse, many of these sub-standard companies use what is commonly known as the “Stuffing method” where the installer applies the urethane to the area and then stuffs the windshield down under the cowl that goes above the windshield. By not removing the cowl the windshield and firewall areas become a safety hazard at the time of an accident.
How does a windshield protect the occupants of a car?
If a vehicle with an improperly installed windshield is involved in a front end collision, the body panels will not crumple properly and the passenger side airbag can deploy and blow the windshield out of the vehicle putting you and your family in danger.
