Q. What is OEM glass?

OEM is an acronym that stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. OEM glass is produced from original equipment-style tooling and meets the manufacturer specifications for safety and quality. Only OEM glass can ensure proper fit and finish which greatly reduces the possibility of air or water leaks.

Most importantly, only OEM glass is designed to meet the safety standards necessary for your protection in an accident. You should always use OEM glass to ensure your safety. If you have any questions about OEM glass or any other glass repair service or windshield replacement, please contact our car window replacement shop in Garland.

Q. How long will it take to replace my windshield?

Replacing your windshield itself normally takes around 45 minutes to an hour. However, from our auto glass replacement techs in Plano and Garland Texas, we suggest that you not drive your vehicle until it is safe to do so. Your drive-away time can depend on a number of things that include the number of airbags in your vehicle and the type of adhesive required. At 1st Class Auto Glass, we suggest a safe driveway time between 45 minutes to an hour and a half.

Absolutely! In most cases, we can replace any piece of glass that originally came in your vehicle. Most vehicles come with a mix of laminated and tempered glass. Laminated glass is used for the windshield while tempered glass is employed in most back, door, quarter and vent windows.

Our car window replacement techs in Plano and Garland at, 1st Class Auto Glass, have access to all types of glass and our technicians are also fully trained to replace all of these glass parts. Please contact 1st Class Auto Glass to schedule your auto glass replacement or repair.

Q. What role does the windshield play in my vehicle’s safety?

Your windshield plays an extremely large role in the safety of your vehicle. You may not realize that the passenger side airbag in your vehicle deploys upwards, first, and then deflects off the windshield and out toward your passenger. This deployment exerts an enormous amount of pressure on the windshield and will eject an improperly installed windshield, rendering the airbag useless.

Another aspect of this is the evolution of automobiles in general – windshields continue to get bigger while roofs typically get smaller. This means that there are less metal and more glass utilized in protecting you should be involved in a rollover accident. If a substandard adhesive or windshield is used, your windshield could fail to afford you the protection that your automobile’s manufacturer intended.

Q. Will my inspection and registration stickers be get transferred to my new windshield?

Absolutely! Including your inspection sticker and registration sticker and other necessary documentation will be replaced to your new windshield.
