Every time that you have gone through an auto glass replacement, you carry with you some warranty for the windshield repair. The windshield repair warranty that you have can either have limited features and filled with complete ones, depending on which auto glass company you had availed your services from. There are even those that are available in installations. Usually, the warranty takes effect by the time you own the vehicle. In other cases, it comes in some limited form of a warranty that is made available for purchase. The ones working at the auto glass company should have more information about the warranty they are offering. Most of the windshield replacement should have some warranty that is signed by the car owner.
What contains in a windshield repair warranty?
The warranty offered mostly covers any damages, defects or issues that arise within the auto glass’ installation or the glass’ manufacture itself. But there are cases in which the warranty doesn’t cover the replacement or repair of the auto glass. An example would by how there is some rust surrounding the window seal. There are also special cases wherein this is considered to be covered.
When the auto glass cracks, breaks, get loose or gets into any other situation that makes it defective that alters the completed work done on the glass, the warranty takes effect. Other things that cover up in this warranty that incurs repairs includes leaks, breaks, damages to the seal, stress cracks or any other problems that arise in the manufacture or installation of the glass. Keep in mind that as a general rule, warranties do not cover inflicted damages such as added vandalism or breakage due to another wreck.
By the time you pick up your vehicle when you have sent it to the auto glass company, make sure that you ask the technician that is handling the replacement or repairs regarding the warranty of the glass. Most auto glass installations come in warranty, or it can also be provided at the time when the auto glass is purchased and installed in your vehicle.
Being the car owner, it is your responsibility to understand what curtails in a warranty before leaving fully. This way, you will know exactly what you need to do when you face a problem with your new auto glass or the installation itself. The staff at the company will be able to explain about the warranty to you in full detail.
You should also ask some questions when you consult for the auto glass installation. Since you own the vehicle, it is your job to make sure that you are getting a copy of the signed warranty, which should be in writing. You should also keep another copy of the warranty, for extra safety measures, should you lose the other copy for inspections.
Others purchase a warranty when they do not own the car itself, for example, when they accidentally break the glass in some situation. When you are asked for the replacement, it is your duty to make sure that you get a warranty that you can take advantage when a need for it arises.
