Remember when you need a quote for a windshield replacement near me, It’s not just about a clear view when driving your car, although that’s very important as well. A cracked windscreen can reduce your car’s overall safety in the event of a crash, collision or car rollover.
All Model Windscreens do not encourage you to ever drive with a damaged or smashed windshield, however it is important to know that it can be dangerous for the driver and the passengers in an emergency situation.
It is critical that you ensure your windscreen is replaced when it is damaged beyond repair. The windshield is a key structural and safety component of your car. The windshield is more than a viewing platform or a piece of glass, it is made by the vehicle manufacturer as part of the overall structural integrity providing a strong support of your car’s roof, adding rigidity and balance in case your car rolls over during an accident.
The front windscreen or windshield is made of two clear sheets of specific glass with a clear plastic layer contained between the two sheets of glass. The two layers are fused together (glass lamination), which adds strength to the two glass layers.
When you see a broken or smashed windscreen, the dual laminating layers is what keeps the glass pieces contained safely together and stops harmful glass pieces spraying into the driver and passengers. In order to maintain a safe structure and legal registration of your vehicle, the windscreen should not have any damage obstructing the view. Any windshield chips or windscreen cracks in the driver’s line of sight or cracks in the driver’s view can distort or block the view of the road. This cracking or chipping obstructing a clear and safe view of the road, is considered to be a vehicle defect and the Police may issue you a vehicle infringement notice fine for not repairing or replacing your car’s broken, chipped or smashed windshield.

All Model Windscreen windshield replacement service provides a safer and high quality process:
- Before any work is commenced, our automotive glass technician will do a visual inspection of the vehicle to check for any pre-existing issues that need to be considered such as body rust, age of rubber moulds, condition of the current glass and electronic glass accessories.
- The technician will do an existing safety check of the environment, the tools and customer’s vehicle. *COVID19 safety hygiene practices will be applied where applicable.
- The technician will carefully remove the old/existing mould or rubber trim around the interior and exterior perimeter of the windscreen, as well as any existing digital accessories such as sensors, camera and the rearview mirror.
- The old/existing adhesive sealant on the perimeter of the windscreen is cut using specialised automotive glass cutting tools which can be either motorised or manual, depending the model and make of the vehicle. Our technician will choose the safest option for your specific vehicle to ensure least risk of any damage to your car.
- Depending on the type of autoglass, windscreen or windshield may require the help of an automotive glass assistant. If required, the technician with an on site assistant will slowly and carefully lift the damaged windscreen out using specialised industrial strength suction tools or lever and this glass will be taken away by our team and then later be recycled safely by our own glass removal processes
- The body of the vehicle is cleaned, prepared and new premium adhesive sealant is applied to the car body and windshield surface supports.
- Once the glass is prepared by the technician with the relevant premium products and fitting requirement, the new windscreen glass is then safely lifted and lowered into place on the vehicle.
- At this time, connections of sensors, accessories, cameras, brake lane ADAS assist technology is reconnected by our trained and authorised technician. Once all the correct connections are made the interior trims are then refitted and the windscreen is then secured gently with specialised adhesive tape temporarily while the sealant cures and bonds to the car correctly. The vehicle will require an approximate period of 45 minutes settlement time before it can be moved or driven.
