Car windshields are made of safety glass, a special construction designed to offer the best possible safety in a crash. This type of glass is made of two pieces of glass with a thin layer of vinyl in between them. When small objects hit a piece of safety glass, only the first layer breaks. In a more severe impact, the glass will “shatter,” but it will not fly apart. The broken pieces of glass hold to the vinyl inner lining to prevent glass from flying into the passenger area.
At our auto glass shop, we offer a limited warranty on windshield installations, and guarantee against leaks for as long as you own your vehicle. This warranty does not cover leaks, stress cracks, or related damage on vehicles with pinch weld rust and/or structural damage. Before installation, we make every effort to inform and show you such damage.
