Auto Insurance Accepted!
Our customer service makes it easy to schedule and we accept all auto insurance! We work with many of the local agents to offer a seamless experience. Your insurance company will likely ask you what options (if any) your vehicle has. Common options include a rain or humidity sensor, a heated wiper park area, heads up display, an electrochromic mirror, or any
manufacturer logos. These options all make a difference
in what windshield is installed, even if you didn’t realize
your vehicle was equipped!
We can install glass for domestic and foreign vehicles,
minivans, conversion vans, and heavy duty trucks. We can
also install glass for construction and other equipment,
on-site if needed.
If your vehicle has Advanced Driver Assistance Systems
(ADAS) we have you covered! We have an in-house scan
tool and the appropriate equipment to calibrate your
vehicle’s forward facing camera. You can rest assured that your safety system is as precise as your new windshield.
Your vehicle options or ADAS features are not always recognizable by owners. If you need assistance to determine what your vehicle is equipped with, stop by and we are happy to look at it with you!
If you have a chip or small crack in your windshield we should be able to repair the glass. This not only saves you the cost of a windshield replacement, but also saves the amount of windshields going to our landfill! ♻️ Check with your insurance agent to see if they cover chip repairs! If the chip can be repaired, it is no cost to you! If your insurance does not cover chip repairs, the cost of our service is usually less than the out-of-pocket expense of your windshield deductible!
The size, age, and cleanliness of the chip can impact the finished look of the repair.
Often times you will see a “scar” from the original impact point where the rock hit
your glass. Due to the unstable nature of the chipped glass, there is a small chance
the chip may crack further from the pressure of performing the repair. This does not happen
often, but if it does, there is no charge for the attempted repair. We will schedule a windshield replacement at your convenience.
A windshield chip repair takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. It involves prepping the
impact point, running a special windshield resin through multiple pressure-vacuum cycles,
filling the pit, and curing the resin under UV light. During the summer or winter, if your
windshield is too cold or too hot, we will let the glass come to an appropriate temperature before
starting the repair process, which could add additional time. This is an important step to reduce
the chance of the chip cracking further while under pressure during the repair.
Rain sensors can be round, tear drop, or rectangular in shape. They are located in the dark tinted area behind your rearview mirror. Sometimes they are next to a camera, or they can be stacked above or below. You may notice an “Auto” setting on your windshield wiper knob.
Humidity (or Condensation) Sensors are sometimes located right next to your rearview mirror and can be seen when sitting on the passenger’s side. Other times this sensor is located inside the black housing of your rearview mirror and cannot be seen until the housing is removed.
A heated wiper park area is basically a heated defroster at the bottom of your windshield, where your wipers rest. These lines are sometimes very hard to see. They can be black on black or an orange-ish color, depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
Having a heated windshield is different than having a heated wiper park area. A heated windshield actually has tiny wavy lines running throughout the whole windshield.
Heads Up Display is when certain information that would appear in your instrument panel is reflected onto the bottom of your windshield in the drivers view. This is a safety feature to help keep the driver's eyes up and on the road.
An electrochromic mirror is when your rearview mirror automatically dims the reflection of headlights from cards behind you, decreasing the glare.
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are features in your vehicle that include radar sensors and cameras designed to prevent or reduce collisions by alerting the driver of potential hazards. These systems are meant to increase safety and reaction times. When you have a forward facing camera and your windshield is replaced, this requires your camera to be recalibrated.
Common ADAS features include:
Lane Departure Warning / Lane Keep Assist
Forward Collision Warning
Adaptive Cruise Control
Auto High Beam
Types of ADAS Calibrations
There are two types of ADAS calibrations. Most domestic vehicles require a Dynamic Calibration. Most foreign vehicles require a Static Calibration. Some vehicles require both! In the simplest terms, a dynamic calibration involves a road test. Using our scan tool to connect to your vehicle, we drive the vehicle on a road with specific parameters to recalibrate the camera. For a static calibration, your vehicle is parked inside our shop. Using our scan tool to connect to your vehicle, our calibration equipment is set up in the front center of your vehicle at a precise distance using laser measurements. A specific target board (meant for your vehicle) is displayed in front, at a specific height and distance, so the camera and sensors can read the target board to recalibrate.
