This post is the fourth in a series on windshield history, technology, and mobile windshield replacement. If you haven’t read parts 1-3 yet, I recommend you do before continuing.
How do we make sure our windshield can handle what we need it to? (continued)
Given how much we ask of our windshields, you might be wondering how we can make sure they’re up to the task. Well, the good news is that modern automotive manufacturers have spent decades and millions of dollars figuring out how to make their cars’ windshields as strong and safe as possible. So, problem solved, right? Not quite.
No matter how tough a windshield is, life happens, and eventually it’s going to get damaged. Once it’s damaged, we can no longer trust it to live up to the high standards we need it to, so it has to be replaced.
When we replace the windshield, it’s critical that the job we do lives up to the same high standards the manufacturer used in the original installation. Most of the time, this procedure is automated and done by robots, so that’s a pretty high standard of precision to live up to. Unfortunately, many mobile windshield replacement companies out there aren’t living up to that standard, either due to the fact that they’re using substandard windshields, substandard adhesives, or substandard methods and practices.
At Chapman Auto Glass, we only use the highest quality replacement auto glass – the same OEM manufacturers used in car factories. We also only use top-notch Dow chemical adhesives, which cost about two to three times more than the aftermarket adhesives used by cut-rate shops. Lastly, we use the most up to date industry standard techniques set forth by the Auto Glass Safety Council.
When it comes to mobile windshield replacement, don’t pinch pennies with your family’s safety. Call Chapman Auto Glass and get the job done right!
