We wonder if you have ever really thought about what an important role your windshield plays in the integrity of your vehicle! At Auto Glass North York, we’re the vehicle glass specialists and we know that you can’t take issues with your windshield lightly!
Your windshield is a part of the safety restraint system of your vehicle, and the importance of having your windshield properly installed cannot be overstated. There are many ways in which the windshield contributes to driver and passenger safety.
The main components of the safety restraint system of any vehicle are the windshield, airbags and seat belts. The windshield supports the roof and also the passenger side airbags during deployment. If the windscreen gets detached, the airbags will not deploy properly- this can have catastrophic consequences in an emergency situation. It also preserves the structural integrity of the passenger compartment and keeps it from collapsing and crushing the passengers during a crash.
Windshields cushion the impact when an occupant is thrown forward in an accident. The surface is actually made of two layers of glass sandwiched around polyvinyl material, which is flexible and cushions the impact.
Windshield glass is laminated, which means that it is shatter proof and can withstand impact better. The rest of the glass on your vehicle is tempered and shatters. Smaller windshield cracks or pits can be repaired, but when bigger breaks and cracks occur, replacement is the only option.
If your windshield is scratched, chipped or cracked, it is important that you get it repaired or replaced at the earliest. Prudent and timely repairs ensure that there is no further damage- which could necessitate a costly replacement.

When the Auto Glass Canada team claims that crack repairs are their specialty, they aren’t kidding!
After they had worked on our vehicle, it was almost impossible to see the cracks.
Recently we approached another company to get a small chip fixed. Without any analysis they put their machine on the chip and it spread to 6”.They told me that this happened because of the nature of the chip, and the only alternative was to replace the windscreen. While their cost for the chip repair seemed very reasonable, the quote for the replacement turned out to be exorbitant. I now believe they applied pressure with their machine to turn the chip into a crack, so that they could charge me these fancy rates for a replacement!
Our experience with Auto Glass was just the opposite. I was told what I could expect, and they were transparent about costs and time. The crack repair was so good we almost couldn’t believe it ourselves. They also told me that if I wasn’t happy I could get back to them within 7 days, and they would refund the cost of the labor which could be adjusted against a replacement if I wanted it. My windshield is still in great shape! Thank you, Auto Glass Canada!
