No driver likes to make car repairs. Or, more accurately, no driver likes to pay for car repairs. That’s why so many people try to find the most economical option possible. In fact, most of us don’t think twice when we choose these discounted services. However, quality counts—especially for a vehicle that you rely on to protect you and your loved ones when you’re on the road. You typically think about this when it comes to critical systems in your car, like the brakes. But the same applies to other components that you may not have thought of, like your auto glass. Here are two reasons why cheap windshield replacement isn’t always best.
First, a company that offers discount windshield replacement may not be using the highest quality glass that’s available. These businesses have to find a way to cut corners in order to keep their prices down. Unfortunately, that means they may decide to use inferior auto glass on your vehicle. How can you be sure that you’re getting a windshield that will perform as good as it possibly can? One of the best ways is to ask your auto glass company about the brands they use. You’ll be able to trust major manufacturers, whose products have met or exceeded safety standards.
Another danger of inexpensive windshield replacement is the quality of workmanship. Labor is yet another way an auto glass company can reduce expenses. An untrustworthy installer may instruct their staff to do their windshield replacement jobs quickly. That increases the chances that your windshield won’t be installed properly. They may also employ technicians that aren’t trained or otherwise qualified to do the job. Ask your installer about the training required for their staff. You can also see if your installer is a member of the Auto Glass Safety Council and the National Glass Association.
