Cheap Windscreen and Car Glass Replacement Services in London
So, you had a crack or chip in your windscreen but put it off because you did not have the time to fix it. And now it has spread across the screen and into your line of sight. It can no longer be repaired, it has to be replaced.
How Do They Do It?
Remove. The first thing our glass technician does is to remove the windscreen wipers. Then they have to remove the old windscreen. This includes carefully removing the molding while not damaging the clips. If the clips are damaged it is okay because they can glue the windscreen on anyway. The clips are mainly for looks. Using a pry tool or knife, they will cut the urethane from the outside between the glass and the frame. If the glass cannot be removed from the outside, they will cut it out from the inside using a razor knife made just for this type of job. Then they will use suction cups to remove the glass safely.
Prepare the Frame. After the technician has the windscreen removed they will clean and lubricate the frame. They use a caulking gun to spread the urethane onto the frame. Then the technician puts in the new one and leaves it to dry. After they wipe off the excess urethane, they will apply weather sealant and let it sit for about an hour. That’s it, a new windscreen.
Does Insurance Cover This?
Yes, in most cases your insurance will cover the windscreen replacement if you have comprehensive insurance as well as collision insurance. If the windscreen is damaged in an accident caused by another driver their insurance will cover it. Top Windscreen London will work with your insurance company to get you the best deal.
How Much Does it Cost?
The costs for a new windscreen can vary from £100 up to £500 or more, depending on the make, model, and year of your vehicle. We use only quality OEM glass that is specifically made for your vehicle so it fits exactly as the original. It must be the right glass for your make and model or it will not have a perfect seal and may leak or vibrate. In most cases, your insurance will pay if you have comprehensive insurance and our service representatives will do all of that for you so you do not have to worry about a thing.
