Myth: Windshield replacements are, “just cut out the old window and glue in a new one.”
Fact: Many Auto Glass Technicians take shortcuts. They don’t remove your cowl and don’t properly prepare the mating surfaces to ensure a safe, leak free installation that will last the life of the vehicle. Properly preparing the pinch weld and windshield surface is a vital step in the replacement process.
Today’s windshields are equip with many electronics and ADAS capabilities that require specialized tools to ensure precise recalibration. We are proud to tell you we do all of our Recalibrations in house!
Properly installing the rain sensor of your vehicle ensures that your automatic windshield wipers continue to function properly during wet conditions.
Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) is becoming standard equipment on today’s new vehicles. These systems are designed to assist drivers to prevent collisions by displaying alerts, providing camera images or by taking instantaneous control of the vehicle. We use special tools and equipment to recalibrate your systems with millimeter precision.
Essential safety-critical ADAS applications include:
If your vehicle is equip with ADAS functionality, recalibration is required when replacing the windshield or even just removing the camera. If the camera angle is off by a few degrees, this could result in your brake assist or collision avoidance system to not work as intended. Lets say you’re supposed to have 100 feet for stopping space but your camera angle is off resulting in the only having 60 feet. This would lead to your vehicle’s computer system to not brake soon enough and cause a collision with the car/motorcycle or pedestrian in your line of travel. It’s crucial that proper recalibration is done to ensure proper operations of your vehicle’s safety features.
We offer rock chip repairs as long as there are no “fingers” or cracks coming off of the chip longer than 1 inch. If the cracks are larger that than replacement of the windshield is recommended. We drill into your rock chip and inject it with a resin that cures with UV light. This is different from the cheap methods found on amazon that don’t work (from reviews we have heard from customers). What’s great about you having us fill your rock chips for you is that if it does crack later – we take that off of the cost of replacement! You can rest assured your vehicle will be serviced with the highest level of care and craftsmanship every time.
