What is your vehicle windshield equipped with?

As vehicle design continues to evolve and become more sophisticated, so do windshields. Today’s vehicles include new advancements to increase safety and ease of vehicle operation. A lot of these new features are built into or attached to new windshields. Vehicle manufacturers are featuring “smart windshield technology,” like sensors that can tell when it’s raining and turn on your wipers. Collision avoidance and lane departure systems use windshield-mounted cameras. Studies have shown that those innovations reduce accidents considerably. There are also special acoustical windshields that help Bluetooth communications sound better inside the cabin.

It is important to know what your windshield is equipped with when you call to get an estimate on a windshield replacement! One way to be sure is to take a picture of the windshield from the outside of the car, of the top center of the windshield and the inside where the rear view mirror meets the windshield.

You may have:

  • Heated Wiper Parking Area
  • Rain Sensor
  • Condensation Sensor
  • Lane Departure Warning System
  • Lane Keep Assist
  • Forward Collision Alert
  • Heads Up Display
  • Infrared
  • Acoustic Inner Layer

Do it yourself kits DIY with windshield repair… Please don’t do it to your wallet

Hello everyone, this is Jason from Windshield Wonder LLC, I’m here to talk about do it yourself kits or also known as DIY windshield repair kits and headlight restoration kits. First we are going to look at DIY windshield repair kits. The problem with these kits are that they don’t give you all the tools necessary to complete the job to the correct specifications.

When doing a windshield repair one must have a mirror to see if the resin is flowing out to the ends of the crack legs and to check the amount of air still inside the damage. Also one must have a probe to clean out any debris in the impact point to aid the flow of resin and produce the best possible cosmetic look of a windshield repair. The probe is also used to see if there is any water inside the damaged area as well as to see if there are any tight micro fractures that can’t be seen without focused pressure to the damaged area. And last but not least a DIY kit does not give you any of the wisdom and experience to know and understand the complex nature of broken glass.

If you use one of these DIY kits you most likely will not fill the damage correctly, and when the resin is cured it will block off most future attempts to repair the windshield damage by a professional windshield repairman. This situation will most likely cause the damage to your windshield to spread out over time causing the need for a costly windshield replacement.

In short go with a professional windshield repair company and have the job done right the first time. If you are trying to save money, a professional windshield repair shop may be able to get you a free windshield repair through your comprehensive auto insurance policy. Call a Professional shop today to see if you qualify.


8 Reasons Why You Should Repair Your Windshield Instead Of Replacing Your Windshield.

  1. Safety - Your windshield was installed at the factory with an ultra-tight bond that can never be duplicated. Because of this, a newly installed windshield can pop out during an accident and cause your airbags to malfunction, placing your family at great risk.
  2. Water Leaks - Because we don't remove your windshield, there is no chance of air or water leaks.
  3. Environment - Since windshield glass can't be recycled, millions and millions are piled up in our landfills.
  4. Experience - I have been repairing windshields for over 18 years.
  5. No Down Time - On most new windshield installations, it's recommended that you don't drive the car for 48 hours and don't run it through a car wash for 2 weeks. But since our 30 minute repairs fully cure in 5 minutes, you’re free to drive the car right away - even through a car wash!
  6. 85% of all breaks can be repaired - I even repair and guarantee cracks up to 6 inches long.
  7. Lifetime Warranty - For as long as you own your vehicle we guarantee the repaired area will not spread and will pass state inspection, or we will refund the original price of the repair.
  8. It might be Free! - Since most insurance companies will waive your deductible if you repair your windshield, you save money.
