Skip site navigation Speedy Glass - Windshield repair and replacement

Why is it important to repair or replace a windshield?

When a vehicle rolls over or when it crashes head-on, the windshield is largely responsible for keeping the vehicle’s structural strength as it makes up to 30% of its structure. On top of that, the windshield allows for the airbags to be properly deployed to make sure the passengers are protected. A brand-new, well-installed windshield helps the vehicle regain its structural strength. It’s something that should not be overlooked.
