Chip Repair

Windshield Repair Saves You Time and Money

For a busy driver, there’s nothing more frustrating than a windshield crack caused by a flying rock. Even the smallest chips can lead to long cracks when exposed to heat, cold and road vibrations, eventually requiring complete windshield replacement. Approximately 75% of damaged windshields can be repaired instead of replaced.

This is encouraging news, especially when considering that any windshield damage that obstructs the driver's view is illegal.

For anyone whose windshield has doubled as a backstop for rocks and debris that fly off of flatbed trucks, prompt action is critical.

Your windshield is there to protect you at all times and provide you with a clear view. It is vitally important to repair any damage regardless of its size to ensure your safety, and also to prevent it from getting worse and potentially costing you more than necessary.

Window Regulator

If you have trouble lowering or raising your door glass you will have to replace your door regulator and/or motor.

What is a door regulator and why do I need one?

The door window regulator is the mechanism that raises and lowers the door window glass on both power and manually-operated windows.

Vehicles equipped with electric windows have an electric motor in each door. When the driver/passenger pushes the window-switch control panel, the window raises and lowers.

This electric motor operates a mechanical linkage called the door window regulator, which is attached to the door's window glass.

How much does a regulator and/or motor cost?

The cost of replacing your regulator and/or motor differs from vehicle to vehicle. For the most accurate quote, call us and let us find the best deal for you.

Allstate recently paid Lakeland, Fla.-based Gunder Auto Center’s full labor rate to settle 12 pending lawsuits over short pays. Allstate’s decision could impact auto glass shops as well since they also face short pays from insurers.

Collision shop owner Ray Gunder sued Allstate on behalf of his customers after the insurer refused to cover full labor rates for collision repair work. Allstate representatives approached Gunder in June of this year to discuss finding closure to the lawsuits

Windshield Dangers

Did you know the windshield of your automobile is a safety device, like air bags and safety belts? Your car’s windshield can help save your life, and the lives of your passengers, by ensuring you are not thrown from the vehicle in a collision.

Windshields also play a critical role in front passenger airbag deployment on many cars. And, the windshield (and rear window) helps support the roof of the vehicle in a rollover so you and your passengers will not be crushed.

Some windshield damage may not be noticed immediately. This is why it’s imperative to regularly check your windshield and all of the vehicle’s glass for any problems.

Our certified technicians at First American Auto Glass recommend using these simple steps to inspect your car:

  • Check the entire windshield, inside and out, for chips and cracks. Minor chips and very small cracks may be repairable, provided they are outside the driver’s primary line of sight. Any significant cracks or damage will require windshield replacement.
  • Check around the edge of the glass for damage to the surrounding body work. Any problems that affect the seal of the glass to the body can weaken structural integrity and should be repaired.
  • Check the windshield wipers to make sure the rubber blades are soft and pliable. Hard, brittle or damaged blades can break and allow the metal wiper arm to scratch the glass.
