If you are anything like me, when a chip appears on your windscreen you probably take a mental note to get it seen to but that is about it. Lots of people do the exact same thing and lots of people end up needing a windscreen replacement. When this happens you are best to get a few companies to give a windscreen replacement quote.
Now a replacement quote for windscreen in Lothian may well be different from one in Ayrshire or Stirlingshire so you are best to shop around. Although companies will differ on price the job they will do will pretty much be the same. So how does your windscreen get replaced?
It is quite a simple job, if you know what you are doing but it is one that should always be carried out by a trained technician. Your windscreen is integral part of the structure of your vehicle and should be fitted with care.
Before starting the windscreen technician will take care to protect the area around the existing windscreen so as not to cause any damage to paintwork or body work. The windscreen wipers and any trim are then removed from the old windscreen.
The old sealant is then cut to make it easy to remove so as to provide a sound base for new sealant to be applied and your old windscreen is removed.
The windscreen replacement is then thoroughly degreased; primers are applied to both the glass and the body work which allows for full adhesion of the sealant when it is applied.
A polyurethane sealant is then applied to the windshield replacement and it is installed in your vehicle.
Your windscreen wipers are refitted as is any trim that was originally removed and the windscreen replacement is complete. After around an hour the vehicle should be able to be driven but be guided by the advice of the technician.
Roughly the same procedure is carried out by replacement companies up and down the country so obtaining a windscreen replacement quote is a good way to choose a company. You should also bear in mind whether the company provides mobile fitters, the level of their customer care and past customer testimonials before deciding.
