Your windshield is a crucial component to your vehicle. It makes up 70% of the structural integrity to your car. A windshield is designed to protect the roof of the vehicle from caving in during an accident.

Many glass installers tend to overlook this fact and it can lead to some dangerous consequences.


If your windshield is not properly installed, it’s likely that it will develop cracks and chips. These small, unnoticeable chips can grow into larger cracks and spread across your windshield, rendering it dangerous and useless.

Airbag Support:

Windshields aid in the deployment of airbags. If the windshield was improperly installed, it can fall out during an accident. This will cause the front airbags to deploy ineffectively, which is critical to safety. Most people do not realize the importance the windshield plays in overall safety of the vehicle. This is why we cannot stress enough to make sure you get your windshield repaired by an expert.

Less Money, More Problems:

A typical windshield replacement should cost somewhere between $200-$500, depending on your vehicle. Chances are, if you get quoted at less than this, you’re going to be putting  yourself at risk. A replacement service that offers a lower price usually means lower quality materials and labor.

In the end, what appears to save you money in the short-term could only end up costing you more in the long-term. Bad windshield installs can require repairs within a year and you’ll end up spending way more than you would have had you gotten it  done right the first time.
