Is it OEM Glass or Imitation?
One important aspect of auto glass replacement is the origin of the glass you plan to use. Is it original equipment manufacturer (OEM) glass, or is it an imitation? OEM replacement parts are produced by the maker of your car. This is always the best option because you know it will fit perfectly with your vehicle and last as long as the rest of your car. Better yet, car makes often include a one year warranty on their replacement parts.
If you must use non-OEM replacement glass on your windshield, rear glass, or side windows, make sure it’s high quality and has all of the same durability and safety features as the original. Ask your mechanic--he’ll be more than happy to talk you through the origin of the glass. The technicians at Ewald are friendly and informative. They'll be eager to discuss your options with you for repairing the glass on your vehicle.
Will Insurance Cover Auto Glass Repair Near Me?
If the damage to your glass was caused by a collision, than your collision-specific insurance will kick in and you’ll be compensated for that cost. It gets more complicated when your windshield damage is caused by hail, falling limbs, or rocks, but if your insurance policy includes comprehensive coverage, you should be fine.
If you end of needing to fill out a claim for comprehensive coverage, be sure to look at your deductible: it’s possible that your deductible for comprehensive insurance will cost more than simply paying for the windshield repair out of pocket. Additionally, your insurance policy may have limits for how much you can be reimbursed, although it’s unlikely that your glass damage will exceed that limit. Start off by making sure you have comprehensive insurance in the first place -- if not, you might want to give your insurance provider a call.
We work with all insurance providers to get you the service you need, and we’re more than happy to work with your agency. Ewald makes it easy to handle negotiations with your insurance provider.
What Sets Good Installation Technicians Apart?
Did you know that a windshield is actually two pieces of glass? They are held together by an inner piece of vinyl--it’s all part of the process that keeps you safe from falling shards if your windshield is broken. As you can imagine, these pieces need to be installed carefully by trained experts, and if they aren’t, you could be in serious danger.
From adhesives to attachment mechanisms, all of the glass in your car needs to be installed with painstaking care. Your glass protects you from debris, it won’t injure you when it breaks, and it supports the majority of your roof’s weight, but only when it’s installed properly! When you entrust Ewald with your auto glass installation, you won't need to worry about subpar work.
