The factory seal on your windscreen can never be duplicated with a windscreen replacement.
In an accident, your vehicle relies on your windscreen in a couple of ways. The passenger airbag uses the windscreen for proper inflation, the roof uses the windscreen for support in the event of a rollover, and when your vehicle crumples up in an accident, the windscreen helps direct the energy of the impact around the passenger compartment.
When a customer chooses repair, we are usually able to complete the whole process in half an hour. A replacement can leave your vehicle unsafe to drive for up to 10 hours.
If the customer has comprehensive insurance, the repair will be FREE with no loss of no-claims discount. If the customer is only 3rd party insured, the average cost is usually a fraction of the cost of replacement.
Once we complete a repair, the structural integrity of the windscreen is restored. We give a no-quibbles lifetime guarantee against the windscreen cracking any further. Also all of our repairs are guaranteed to pass the MOT test for the life of the vehicle.
When we repair a break, we guarantee an 80% increase in optical clarity. Many times, depending on the damage we achieve a 95-98% improvement in the appearance of the damaged area.
A repair does not disturb the factory seal so there are never any leaks to worry about.
Often during a replacement, the paint under the seal is scratched and scraped which can result in rust forming around the windscreen.
9. THE ENVIRONMENT:
Currently the laminated glass that is used to make windscreens is not recyclable. The waste from 40 replacements is enough to fill a skip. The waste from 40 repairs will fit in the palm of your hand.
