Ace Auto Glass has been in the auto glass replacement business for over 40 years, and over that time, we’ve seen a variety of glass replacement jobs. Here are a couple of hypothetical scenarios that customers may face if a replacement windshield glass is not properly installed.
Improper seal discovered early
When a customer is lucky, if you could look at it that way, they discover their glass was not properly sealed soon after the replacement. In the first big rain storm after the windshield replacement, they experience water leaking and realized they need to have the glass replaced a second time.
An improper seal discovered too late may cause rust and frame damage
An improper seal allows water to reach the vehicle frame, and over time will cause rust and damage to the frame.
When the vehicle frame is damaged with rust, instead of just replacing the glass, a customer will incur both the cost of auto body repair and the glass replacement.
Choosing the cheap alternative may be more expensive in the long run
When you weigh the cost of an auto body repair plus a windshield replacement against just the glass replacement, the added expense of a second repair can get quite expensive.
Cost Estimate of Proper Repair the First Time (*Hypothetical estimate)
Glass Replacement $270*
Cost Estimate of Improper Repair the First Time, Plus Auto Body Repair and Second Glass Replacement
1st Glass Replacement $250
Auto Body Repair $800*
2nd Glass Replacement** $250
**If customer elects to use same glass replacement supplier
