Should I repair or replace my windshield?

Having a damaged windshield is more of a hazard than simply obstructing your view or becoming a distraction. A car's airbag is designed to deflect off the windshield. You lose that crucial protection if that auto glass breaks or pops out due to improper installation. Also, an intact glass is an essential part of a car's structure, usually providing around half of the support in the event of a rollover accident. In many cases, such as the following, insurance companies prefer to replace a windshield rather than repair it. You should replace your windshield if any of these conditions exist:

  • cracks or chips near the edge of the windshield
  • cracks longer than a certain length, usually around 3 to 6 inches
  • cracks that radiate in several directions
  • more than 2 or 3 cracks or chips

Investing now in order to prevent future damage and injury is even valued by the for-profit insurance companies.

What to expect during your windshield replacement appointment at L&D Auto Specialists

Here are the steps we take to replace your windshield:

  • Auto glass technicians choose the right windshield for the make, model, and year of your vehicle.
  • The technician then makes sure that the old adhesive is completely removed and the metal body underneath is meticulously cleaned. That way, the new adhesive will bond properly so there will be no leaks.
  • Afterwards, we prepare the metal with a special epoxy primer and go over the glass again.
  • Then we flawlessly apply urethane adhesive to the glass, and then install it on your vehicle.
  • After that, we let the adhesive cure so the glass adheres properly to the frame of the vehicle.
  • After your car has been tested and deemed safe to drive, we return it to you and answer your questions. We also handle your insurance paperwork.

Your glass will look exactly the same, unless you have applied an aftermarket tint. In fact, we install the same tint and shade that was installed at the factory. If there are factory electronics in the car, such as heated windshields or built-in antennas, then the replacement vehicle will have them.

What happens if my insurance company refuses to cover OEM glass?

We can still fit your car with OEM glass, however, the difference in price between OEM and an approved aftermarket glass is on you.

They took the time to properly assess the damage, and gave me options.

I was referred to L & D Auto by a friend of mine. I drive a BMW & was not aware of the faulty timing chain for 2012-2014 X3 models. When it broke, it caused significant damage. Baron BMW "assessed" the damage & told me I needed a complete new engine for 13K! I immediately had it towed to L & D. They took the time to properly assess the damage, and gave me options. Although it was still a costly repair, it was nothing like what Baron quoted me
