When you get a chip or a crack in your windshield fixed, you just assume that the person doing the work has been properly trained, right? Well, unfortunately, that might not be the case!
Did you know that less than 5% of windshield repair technicians have any kind of professional training or certification? Yikes! Kinda makes you want to ask to see diplomas and certificates the next time you hire a windshield repair company for an auto glass repair, doesn’t it?
Luckily, a good company will be happy to oblige!
Before you hire anyone to fix your windshield chip or crack, ask to see their credentials. If they are a legitimate company, they will be registered with their local County Clerk’s Office, have insurance and will have gone through the training and certification process created by organizations like Delta Kits and the National Windshield Repair Association. Then, be sure to ask if they adhere to the standards set forth by ROLAGS (Repair of Laminated Automotive Glass Standard). If they don’t – or if they look at you like you have six heads just for asking – you’ve got the wrong company!
