All you need to know about choosing a Windshield Repair Companyby Deepika Singh Writer
Automobiles protect the passengers from exterior elements and accidents apart from providing a means for commuting. Durable adhesives like Urethane are used to seal the glass to the car that provides structural support to the roof of the car during a roll-over accident. Moreover, a car windshield price is decided by factors such as its assistance in airbag deployment. Without the windshield, the airbags might malfunction.
Here are a few questions you can ask the service provider to ensure quality service:
Which adhesive does the company use?
A number of adhesives have been used over time to bond the car glass with the frame of the car. An adhesive must ensure that the auto glass doesn’t detach from the frame of the car under any circumstances, especially during high speeds. Make sure that the company uses Urethane as it is widely accepted in the industry and provides the surety of a safe bond.
Additionally, don’t drive the car right after a replacement job as the adhesive needs some time to dry out. If you do so, you might encounter problems like shaky vision, seepage, added sound in the cabin later.
Are they using OEM glass or aftermarket glass?
There are two types of glass available in the market:
1. Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) glass – it is manufactured by authorized companies with the exact same specifications for the car company. This is the only reliable glass you can buy
2. Aftermarket glass – this type manufactured by companies that aren’t affiliated with the car companies but provide more or less the same product. However, this glass has no guarantee of safety and might manifest some problems later on
As you might have guessed, make sure that an Audi, Jaguar or BMW car glass is an OEM glass. Even if you witness problems, although you won’t, you can always take it back to the service center and get a replacement.
What about the Insurance claim?
Windshield replacement requires considerable expenditure and you must claim the insurance on it when you can. Ask if the service center has affiliations with the major insurance companies. If yes, it will make your job easier and you wouldn’t have to visit another center and you can claim the amount hassle-free. You may also claim the Audi, Mercedes, or BMW car glass repair work depending on the type of car insurance you own. Make sure to check the deductible amount along with the outcome on your upcoming car insurance premium.
Are the technicians qualified?
Reputed car glass companies employ trained technicians or train them before they let them handle your car. Car glass repair requires a level of expertise which is a must for any technician. Ensure that they use high-quality tools, Urethane as the adhesive, work in a pair for replacement and wear gloves throughout the job.
