Auto Glass Replacement Safety

The windshield in your vehicle is a safety device. It protects the occupants from road debris, keeps the occupants in the vehicle in the event of an accident, and provides resistance for the deployment of the passenger side air bag. For these reasons, the replacement of your car's windshield requires special attention from a skilled, trained auto glass installer. Any mistakes in the setting of the windshield, gaps in the adhesive, or a variety of other details can cause a catastrophe if overlooked.

Safely Replacing a WindshieldSafe windshield replacements begin with preparation. Once the old windshield is removed, all the old glass adhesive and the old windshield molding must be removed also. Failure to remove every spec of old adhesive will limit the new adhesive's ability to bond securely to the frame of your vehicle. If the windshield is severely damaged, there may also be shards of glass embedded in the old adhesive that must also be removed completely. With the metal of your vehicle's frame exposed, your American Auto Glass technician will begin a search for corrosion. Corrosion is a cancer, much like rust, that eats away at the raw metal of your vehicle. Normally the windshield molding protects this raw metal from exposure but as the molding ages, the molding slowly loses its ability to shed water. Certain levels of corrosion can be repaired relatively easily. If the corrosion is too severe, there will be no metal to adhere your new windshield to. Therefore, much more work will be needed before your new windshield can be installed properly.

As an informed consumer, you should be aware of the PROPER PROCEDURES required to safely replace a windshield. Many auto glass replacement shops overlook these critical steps at the expense of your safety, but not American Auto Glass. We are committed to providing you the very BEST AND SAFEST windshield replacement that Spring Hill or Tampa has to offer.
