Your auto glass protects you
Your windshield holds the integrity of your car together and is a vital part of your vehicle’s safety. Your windshield prevents your roof from caving in during accidents and it also serves as a protective brace from your passenger side airbag. If your windshield is cracked or improperly installed, it will not be able to perform the way it is supposed to during accidents.
Auto glass is made specifically for cars
Windshields are made with laminated glass and serves as a protective shield against accidents and bad weather. Side windows and rear windshields are made of tempered glass and draws its strength from a special heating and rapid cooling processes. Auto glass keeps your vehicle safe from daily wear and tear driving.
Get an Expert
One of the most important things that you should do for your auto glass is to choose a company that has professional technicians that can help you choose the best solutions for you. Always ask if a shop’s technicians are trained and educated on site.
Not all windshields need to be replaced
Most minor chips and cracks only require simple repairs. However, if you have a severe crack or damage to your windshield, you will need to get it replaced. This will cost more money than a repair and will take longer.
Repairs do not take long
Most windshield repairs can take less than half an hour. Depending on the vehicle, replacements can take up to two hours plus the time for the sealant to cure. However, ask your technician for exact times; not all auto glass shops offer the same speedy service that Speers does.
Sealants need to dry
When you have auto glass work done, the sealant used needs approximately 24 hours to drive. Our technicians will always let you know how long your sealant needs to dry for before you drive away.
Your insurance company might cover costs
Most major insurance companies offer insurance and deductibles for your windshield. Auto glass shops that are covered by major insurance companies provide better quality work than those who aren’t. At Speers Auto Glass, we are covered by insurance companies!
