The windshield represents up to 30% of the structure of your vehicle. It therefore plays a vital role in helping maintain the vehicle's structural strength in the event of a rollover or front-end collision. It also helps ensure the airbags deploy as they should to protect your passengers. A new, properly fitted windshield aids in restoring the structural strength of the vehicle. It is a part of your vehicle that should not be underestimated.

How long will my windshield repair or replacement take?
In many cases, repairs can be done in less than one hour. We can replace your windshield with same day service.
Can my windshield shatter?
This is unlikely. A windshield is made of laminated glass and consists of a plastic compound called polyvinyl butyral (or PVB), which prevents the glass from shattering.
