Did you know that over 75% of windshield installations are done incorrectly? According to ABC’s 20/20, most glass installers do not follow correct procedures when installing glass.
This being said, it is more than likely that your windshield has also been installed incorrectly, and could be dangerous to your safety.
Here are some signs that your windshield needs to be corrected or even replaced due to a faulty glass installation by an inexperienced serviceman.
Water leaking into your vehicle from the seal on your windshield can be very dangerous. This could indicate a poor seal on your windshield, which could mean loose glass!
Bringing your car to our certified installers at Kryger Glass is your best bet. We can seal your windshield and prevent those leaks, ensuring your safety and peace of mind.
The Windshield Isn’t Flush:
It’s never a good sign when your windshield doesn’t sit correctly in its frame. This might be an indicator that your windshield isn’t the right size, or wasn’t placed correctly. This could cause problems down the road and decrease the integrity of your windshield.
Also, if your windshield appears to have a “wavy” look, this means poor quality glass.
If you notice a slight “whooshing” or whistling sound when you’re driving on the highway or at high speeds, this might be an indication that your windshield is cracked or not properly sealed. Get this checked out immediately as it’s a danger to yourself and others.
Suspiciously Fast Service:
Only 20% of glass installers, including Kryger Glass, use Dow Express 30 urethane adhesive. This highly recommended adhesive is the fastest drying urethane in the industry; with a guarantee that your windshield will stay in place 30 minutes after install.
Most other adhesives for windshields can take up to a week to bond to the glass and your vehicle. If your car is claimed to be drivable after a short period of time following installation, chances are that it was done incorrectly. You could be at risk for an unstable windshield.
There are numerous signs for a faulty windshield, and it’s important to recognize them! Call an expert at Kryger today for a promise for safety and assurance of professional service. Kryger Glass does NOT cut corners because the safety of you and your family is our number one priority.
