Many times, the warranty on your windshield will be voided if the repair work is not done by a professional shop. If you receive additional damage or the repair doesn’t go how you expected, the warranty will be of no use to you and you will pay out of pocket for any repair or replacement.
“But I have insurance! I won’t have to pay out of pocket,” you say. That’s great, but your insurance may also not cover damage which has been created or worsened by any DIY mistakes. So be sure to double check before moving forward with any DIY repairs.

When faced with replacing a windshield, many car owners default to the lowest-price option. But if you take this route and are in a serious accident, your decision could cost you your life.
An incorrectly installed windshield could pop out in an accident, allowing the roof to cave in and crush the car’s occupants. Furthermore, when the front airbags deploy, they exert a tremendous force on the windshield and will blow out one that is not firmly glued in place.
“There are a lot of schlock operators” installing windshields, says Debra Levy, president of the Auto Glass Safety Council, which offers certification for installers. She says using original manufacturer’s glass is a plus, but choosing a good installer is even more important. To find a certified shop, visit Safewindshields.org and type your ZIP code into the box at the top of the page. Certification is valuable because it keeps installers up to date on advances in adhesives and changing automotive designs.
