AUTOMOTIVE WINDSHIELD 101
All modern vehicles come equipped with a windshield made of layered glass. Glass is the perfect material for the windshield because it is durable enough for drivers’ protection while offering the transparency you need to see the road. As you know, glass is great for transparency but is also prone to chipping and cracking when impacted forcefully. From pebbles chipping the windshield on the interstate to cracked glass from a foul baseball, the Automotive Windshield Repair & Replacement Service at Sunset Ford Body Shop is ready to restore your vehicle’s windshield to factory specifications and peak performance. No matter if you need to repair a single windshield glass crack before it grows or if you need a replacement windshield, Sunset Ford Body Shop has just what you need with an Automotive Windshield Repair & Replacement.
How does Windshield Repair Work?
Windshield Repair is all about restoring damaged glass to a pre-damaged condition. Windshield Repair can fix minor glass damage, such as chips and cracks that threaten visibility. More extensive damages will require replacement service. Windshield Repair begins with a certified technician that has performed hundreds of Automotive Windshield Repair Services. The damaged glass is cleaned first to prepare the site to accept the resin glass replacement. Once ready, the broken glass area is pumped full of a special resin specifically designed to mimic glass. After injection, the resin is cured using a unique UV curing lamp and then polished to restore what appears to be original glass transparency and strength.
Often the windshield damage is so extensive that the only option left is Windshield Replacement Service. Replacement Service will remove the old windshield and replace it with a brand new windshield with excellent transparency and performance. When the windshield requires replacement, we only rely on genuine manufacturer-approved replacement windshields that have been rigorously tested for fit and performance in your exact vehicle. If you’ve been in an accident and your windshield is beyond repair, Contact Sunset Ford Body Shop today, and we’ll get you in for an Automotive Windshield Replacement Service with a certified technician.
