Windshield Replacement Questions and Answers
Q: What are the dos and don'ts after windshield replacement?A: To ensure the best results from your windshield replacement there are several things you should do. Allow the adhesive to cure and wait at least an hour to drive the vehicle. If you can, leave a window cracked open for the first day or two to alleviate any pressure. Leave the new retention tape in place. Avoid extreme temperature or pressure changes including car washes and power washers. But most importantly, follow any and all recommendations given to you by the person who replaced your windshield.
Q: Do you need to calibrate windshield cameras and laser sensors after windshield replacement?A: An auto glass installer can replace a windshield, snap the camera back into place, and the vehicle will run, but it will not be accurate without calibration. Accurate calibration is necessary and should be done by a professional to ensure the safety features of the vehicle operate properly.
I have been a customer for 18 years and continue to be impressed by the competence, honesty, and kindness of Buddy and Andre. Yesterday I got in a minor collision and Buddy was so supportive as I made an hour's worth of phone calls to my insurance company from his phone! They value excellent customer service above all else. A true gem of a company...so rare in the auto repair world.
