We Make Auto Glass Safety Our #1 Priority

Did you know the windshield in your vehicle is an important safety device?  Just like the air bags and seat belts, a properly installed windshield is an integral part of keeping passengers safe.  Besides the obvious role of protecting occupants from wind, water and debris, 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 airbag deployment on many cars. A properly installed windshield (and rear window) adds up to 60% of the strength supporting the roof of the vehicle in a rollover so you and your passengers will not be crushed. The windshield is not just a piece of glass; it is a peace of mind. Even if you don’t choose Coleman Glass & Mirror to replace your windshield, you want to make sure the replacement process is handled professionally and properly. 

Regular Windshield Check-Ups Keep You Safe

Most drivers don’t think about the glass in their vehicle unless there is obvious glass damage.  Some windshield damage may not be noticed immediately. That's why it is important to regularly check your windshield, and all of the vehicle's glass, for any problems. You can use the following simple steps to inspect your car, or seek the assistance of a Coleman Glass & Mirror certified auto glass technician:

  • 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.
