How A Windshield Is Replaced

Our technicians are highly trained in the installation, repair, and replacement of your auto glass. This is something that should only be handled by a professional, because if it is done incorrectly, you could be risking your safety. An improper installation could leave your windshield susceptible to coming unattached or popping out while driving, endangering everyone in the car. Below is the careful process our technicians perform to make sure your windshield is correctly and professionally replaced.

Step 1: Inspection

The first thing our auto glass professionals will do is inspect the problem with your windshield. Their inspection will reveal whether your windshield needs a repair or whether it needs to be replaced entirely. Repairs are smaller jobs that usually cost significantly less—this is why if you have a small chip or crack in your windshield, you’ll want to get it repaired as soon as possible. That way you can avoid a much bigger cost down the line.

Step 2: Removal

Once a replacement windshield has been deemed necessary, we will need to remove the old, broken windshield from your vehicle. This will involve detaching the windshield from the adhesive holding it in place and removing the entire old windshield from the casing that held it in place.

Step 3: Installation

Next, using our state-of-the art auto glass installation technology, we will place an entirely new windshield perfectly into place on your vehicle. Our new auto glass is the highest quality safety glass and has a one-year workmanship warranty. Our team makes sure that the new windshield adheres to your vehicle’s frame with the strongest bond.

Step 4: Clean Up

Before we send you on your way, we make sure to clean up any and all auto glass, dirt, or debris left over inside your vehicle after the replacement process is complete. You will leave with a safe, new windshield, and a freshly cleaned interior.

Although it doesn’t sound too complicated,windshield replacement is a delicate and intricate process that needs to be done just right in order to be effective. That’s why you’ll want to hire someone you can trust to replace your windshield. Hire someone that has over 50 years of experience servicing vehicles with broken windshields:

Couldn't ask for a better establishment! I been driving around with a cracked windshield for longer than I should have. Finally had am off day and dropped them off my car. I was running late to pick up the car and they were very accommodating. Some places would make you wait until next day. Reasonable straightforward prices. They have gained a customer for life.

Frank’s was great. They didn’t have my windshield in stock and had to order one, but they were ready for me the next day. The work was completed very quickly, and the staff were all friendly. The price was fair. Would go back again if necessary!
