Windshield chip repair by Able Auto Glass in Prescott

What could happen if your windshield is installed incorrectly?

Able Auto Glass in Prescott discusses what could happen if your windshield is installed incorrectly.Did you know that studies show that up to 85% of replacement windshield installations are done incorrectly?!  This is because there are no federal laws regulating the industry.  Able Auto Glass in Prescott discusses what you could experience if your windshield installation is done improperly.

One of the most common things for shoddy installers to do is use old or inappropriate adhesive.  If this is the case you could experience leakage around the windshield.  We always recommend people wait the 24 hours for the windshield to cure, then take it to a carwash to make sure the installation was sealed correctly. 


You also want to make sure that the glass does not appear to be wavy or uneven.  This is also a sign that the installation needs redone.  It could be a bad piece of glass.


Here are a few more items to look for:


•    Previous adhesive wasn’t removed

•    Windshield is not centered or flush to the car’s frame

•    New molding is not flat around the glass


Everyone needs to remember that your windshield is actually part of the safety system of your vehicle.  It is as important to your safety as replacing your tires or brakes.  If your windshield installation isn’t done correctly, you could be very vulnerable in an accident. 


This why it is very important to investigate your installer ahead of time.  If you are using your insurance company, they most likely have already done this for you.  However, if you are paying cash, you must do the homework yourself.  Find out if the installer is a “Preferred Installer” with any major insurance companies.  If the answer is yes, find out who and call them to verify.
