Welcome to the Chapman Auto Glass Blog, Part 10

This post is the tenth in a series on the basics of auto glass, auto glass repair, and mobile windshield replacement. If you haven’t read parts 1-9 yet, I recommend you do before continuing.

Ask about what certifications they hold and what standards they follow (continued)

At Chapman Auto Glass, we follow the Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards (AGRSS) set forth by the Auto Glass Safety Council (AGSC). The AGSC is the non-profit organization responsible for setting standards for auto glass replacement is the US. These standards are covered under ANSI/AGSC/AGRSS 003-2015, which is available to the public on the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) website. It’s important to note that while this is a national standard for best practices, it’s voluntary, meaning auto glass replacement companies are under no obligation to follow it, and oftentimes less reputable companies don’t follow it either to save time or money.

At Chapman Auto Glass, every job we do is also covered by our lifetime warranty.

Standards for windshield repair

As the AGRSS covers standards for best practices in windshield replacement, likewise the ROLAGS (repair of laminated auto glass standard) covers situations where the windshield can be repaired rather than replaced. ROLAGS includes rules for what types of damage can be repaired versus when the windshield must be replaced, and also how windshields should be repaired.

High standards keep you safe

If the shop you’re considering for your auto glass repair or replacement doesn’t follow whichever standards are appropriate (AGRSS for replacement and ROLAGS for repair) then your windshield is not going to perform the way it was designed in the event of a crash. Your vehicles safety systems are no place to pinch pennies – make sure the shop you choose uses the right materials, the right techniques, and follows the right standards.

At Chapman Auto Glass, we use top-notch OEM parts, adhesives, and primers, our highly experienced technicians follow all the right standards, and every job we do is guaranteed. You won’t find better peace of mind than that in the mobile auto glass replacement and and auto glass repair industry. Learn more about how we do mobile windshield replacement here.
