When a windshield is damaged beyond repair, its important that the car owner use a reputable company with well-trained technicians to replace it. Car owners often don’t realize what an important role a windshield plays in the structural integrity of the car. It supports a large portion of the weight of the roof of the car. If a windshield replacement on Long Island isn’t done properly, the windshield may pop out when air bags are deployed. This could lead to the car roof collapsing and crushing the occupants of the car.

Active Auto Glass has been in business over 24 years and only uses the best windshield brands. Their technicians also know the proper techniques to use to replace the windshield. It’s important that the technician wear gloves during the procedure. The oil from their hands can weaken the adhesive that binds the windshield to the car frame. This alone could cause it to pop out during a collision. The company has certificates from the Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards (AGRSS) and is a certified AGRSS company. This means that all of their technicians know the best way to handle all types of automotive glass.

While a windshield replacement on Long Island takes about an hour, it takes longer for the adhesive to fully cure. It’s wise not to drive the car for several hours after the work is finished. All windshield installations are backed by a warranty that meets or exceeds any other windshield repair company or even insurance companies. Active Auto Glass wants customers to see this and know that they take customer service and satisfaction very seriously.

When they examine a windshield, they will consider whether or not it can be fixed instead of being replaced. If the customer’s auto insurance doesn’t cover windshield replacement, then this can save them a great deal of money. If a spot on the windshield is chipped a technician may determine that it can be stabilized by injecting a resin bonding agent into the damaged area. This will prevent any additional cracking, while maintaining the transparency of the glass. The entire process takes about 30 minutes.
