What is an eGlassClaim?

Through the years automobile manufacturers have begun to design windshields as a major part of the support given to the roof of a vehicle. Air bags also make the windshield's strength important. When an air bag deploys it opens at an incredible 150 to 200 miles and hour. This energy must be absorbed by the windshield. In order for you and your passengers to remain safe the integrity of the windshield must be maintained so it can handle the stress of air bags opening.

Glass ​Repair & Replacement

Use of the proper glass is important, but the techniques and other materials used in glass replacement can make-or break an installation .

We follow specific steps replacing glass.

  • remove all moldings, clips and other restraints in the glass area.

  • We check the site for any rust which can compromise a good installation.

  • The area is vacuumed to remove debris and then the old adhesive is cut to allow us to remove the glass.

  • The new glass is checked for fit before installation.

  • The remaining old adhesive is then cut to allow better access and fit.

  • We check the area again for rust and prime any scratches prior to the next step.

  • The inside surface of the new windshield is cleaned and "primed" with special materials for better adhesion in the new installation. We then apply a bead of urethane to the pinch weld on top of the prepared area on the vehicle.

  • The new windshield is then installed over this urethane bead. All clips, screws, molding and other fasteners are replaced.

  • We reinstall the wipers (which are always removed prior to an installation) and test them to assure proper positioning.

  • The new glass is cleaned, inside and out, and the installation area is vacuumed again to remove any installation debris.

  • Then depending upon the type of urethane used, the temperature, and humidity, we allow the installation to "cure" for the proper length of time to assure a strong seal between the vehicle body and the windshield.

We will NOT sacrifice safety for speed when installing a new windshield!
