Windshields are extremely important in keeping you safe. Replacing your windshield is a task that requires a careful assessment of the damage by a certified auto glass replacement technician. Not all windshield damage requires that you get windshield replacement for it. Some windshields may only require repairs, which your auto glass technician can recommend once they are done assessing your glass.
