A windshield is one of the key safety features in your vehicle. It adds to the structural integrity of the car and can help strengthen your car if you were to get in an accident. A faulty windshield should be fixed or replaced as soon as possible to protect you and your family.
Did you know that your windshield is over one third of the strength of your car roof’s structure? A quality windshield helps keep the roof from collapsing in roll over accidents. The windshield is there to help air bags function properly too. Air bags bounce off the windshield before hitting passengers. Windshields are quite high-tech, as they are made up of different layers of glass and vinyl to avoid shattering.
Guardian Auto Glass uses the highest quality auto glass when repairing and replacing windshields and provides the Safest Installation…Always.
Guardian’s windshield repair process eliminates the need for costly windshield replacement by helping to prevent small rock chips and cracks from spreading through the glass surface.
Most windshield damage is caused when rocks hit the windshield surface and result in “bulls-eye” chips or small cracks. As windshields are actually laminated glass manufactured by “sandwiching” a vinyl interlayer between two pieces of glass, typically only the first layer of glass is damaged. Instead of shattering upon impact, in most cases the pieces of damaged glass adhere to the vinyl interlayer.
With Guardian windshield repair, a special repair system is able to correct chips or cracks up to the size of a half-dollar by removing air from the damaged area and replacing it with a specially formulated resin. Once performed, the repairs are permanent and will not turn yellow or cloudy.
The Guardian windshield repair warranty lasts so long as you own your vehicle, so if repairs ever fail, Guardian Auto Glass will apply the cost of the repair to a replacement windshield purchased from Guardian.
Many insurance companies will waive the deductible if you choose repair over replacement, which can save you costly out-of-pocket expenses.
To prevent dirt, water and road grime from contaminating glass breaks, it’s important to repair the damaged area as soon as possible. If your windshield is damaged, contact a Guardian Auto Glass location to schedule a repair. Mobile windshield repair may be available at your home or work!
Windshields come in many different shapes. Sizes depend on the year, make, model and options of your vehicle, and Guardian Auto Glass can find windshields for just about any vehicle. Replacing windshields after damages can sometimes seems like a daunting task. Guardian Auto Glass makes windshield replacement a quick and easy process.
Many times a crack or chip has spread or is too large for a safe repair, and the entire windshield will need to be replaced. It is safest to replace the entire windshield when a crack has spread to larger than 6 inches.
Most insurance companies can cover the cost (usually with a deductible – see your comprehensive coverage details in your policy) of replacing a windshield. Our windshield replacement prices are competitive and our staff is ready to give you a fast and free windshield replacement quote.
