  • dannys glass  How can I be sure you will do the job right?

    Danny's knows the pitfalls of a faulty installation. We know that your windshield needs to stay in your car if you have a collision. Our professional auto glass technicians will repair your automobile to factory specifications or better. This will prevent your new windshield from breaking free of its bond and will provide the needed support to your roof. This will help keep the contents of the vehicle inside and prevent the roof from caving in on the passengers.

  • dannys glass Can I drive the car right away?

    No. This goes for all reputable auto glass replacement companies. There is no adhesive available that allows you drive away the moment the installation is finished. The cure time for your windshield or back glass can be anywhere between one hour and a day - depending on the weather and type of urethane used.

  • dannys glass  How do I know your installers are qualified?

    Our auto glass installation experts understand the ins and outs of auto glass replacement. They are familiar with the proper tools and methods of removal, preparation of the pinch weld, and the different adhesives available that will provide the strength to hold the windshield in your automobile. They also understand the proper methods to prevent leakage and/or rust around the pinch weld where the windshield will bond to the vehicle. Some of our installers have as much as 20 years of experience and have installed thousands of windshields. You can rest assured that your new windshield will be properly installed and your automobile will be restored to the factory specifications or better.

  • dannys glass Will your installer clean up the broken glass?

    Absolutely! Don't touch that glass and risk getting cut. We'll vacuum up all your broken glass when we arrive to do the job.

  • dannys glass Why are windshields considered part of the safety equipment on vehicles?

    Today's engineers use the windshield to help support the roof in case of a rollover. And the adhesive system is meant to keep the windshield from being ejected from your vehicle. Also, if you have a passenger side airbag, the windshield is what supports the airbag when it deploys, so the windshield must stay in place for the airbag to be effective.

  • dannys glass  Will my new windshield leak?

    A properly installed replacement windshield should be as good as new. Installation should not damage you car in any way. Danny's uses only the highest quality adhesives and always properly prepares the surface.

  • dannys glass Will I have to get all new city, inspection, and military decals?

    Frequently, Danny's can transfer decals from your current windshield onto the new one. So you don't need to worry about replacing them.

  • dannys glass What is safety glass?

    There are two types of safety glass used in passenger vehicles. Laminated glass is used in the windshield. It is made up of two layers of glass laminated to a sheet of vinyl in the middle. This holds the glass in place in case of breakage. Tempered glass is used for the other glass in your vehicle. This glass has been heated almost to the point of melting and then is quenched with air at a specific rate to cause the tempering effect. This process also strengthens the glass. When tempered glass breaks, it brakes into tiny pieces.
