Dangers of DIY Windshield Replacement
Improper windshield repair and replacement creates serious risks for passengers. The windshield is vital to the structural integrity of your vehicle’s cabin. Even in minor front-end collisions, the windshield helps to absorb some of the impact down to the chassis. And in the case of rollover accidents, the windshield is designed to help prevent the roof from caving in. Even proper airbag deployment depends on the windshield, using it as a backstop so that it deploys towards the passenger.
In any accident, an improperly installed windshield runs the risk of cracking or shattering, both of which are incredibly dangerous for passengers. Not to mention that, when a windshield is poorly sealed to your car, it can detach completely in an accident, making passengers vulnerable to outside debris. All of these issues can be mitigated with proper professional windshield replacement.
Professional Windshield Replacement
Windshield replacement might seem simple enough, but there are a number of factors that play into proper replacement that only experienced professionals understand. For example, a professional knows how to properly glue and apply pressure to a new windshield, and can advise customers on how to take care of the windshield while the glue settles. Since proper windshield installation is crucial to your safety on the road, there’s no reason to risk improper installation on your own.
