Windshield & Auto Glass Information
You Need To Know
Get to know your windshield
Your windshield gets its strength from several layers of laminated glass bonded together. These glass layers allow the windshield to absorb impacts without severe damage. Large impacts from rocks or other debris may leave a chip or crack, but close inspection of the damage will reveal that only the outer layers of glass have been damaged; your windshield has done its job. Damage of this type does not ruin your windshield, but it is unsightly. This is where windshield repair resin comes in.
Windshield Safety Facts
Your windshield and the other glass in your automobile does more than keep out the wind and rain. Auto glass protects you and your family from flying debris and functions as a safety device in the event of an accident. During an accident the windshield keeps the passengers in the vehicle and provides stability for the roof during a rollover. A windshield that is not installed correctly could fail at the most critical point. For this reason, each of the auto glass installers at Clayton's Glass are trained and certified in the proper use of all materials and tools required for professional auto glass replacement.
Expert Windshield Installation
Our technicians have also been trained to diagnose corrosion issues as they relate to the installation of your windshield. In order for the windshield adhesive to bond properly in the opening, it needs a smooth, clean metal surface to adhere to. Any rust or corrosion around the opening must be treated or removed to guarantee a proper bond. If these issues are overlooked your new windshield could slide around in the opening causing stress cracks, rattles or whistling due to openings between the glass and adhesive; or it could even fall out completely!
