Before you make an appointment for an auto glass replacement be aware of the following:
All Auto Glass is Not the Same
There are 3 broad categories of windshields:
- Original Equipment Manufactured (OEM or Factory glass). This is from
the same manufacturer that supplied the factory when the vehicle was
made. It is considered the highest quality possible, as it is made under
strict conformance to standards laid out by the vehicle manufacturer.
- Factory Equivalent. This glass is the same high quality as the OEM
but is classed as equivalent only because the glass is not supplied
directly to the car manufacturer. The price is less expensive than OEM
without sacrificing on quality.
- Generic. This glass is made by domestic or overseas companies that
are not approved to supply any car manufacturers during production.
Their quality is not considered as high, but the price is less expensive
than both OEM or Factory Equivalent.
Differences in Glass Quality
While there may be some small variation in the thickness of the glass
between the Generic and OEM, this is not the main quality factor. The
main difference is how well the windshield fits your vehicle. The windshield
is not flat. It has a shape, curvature and specific size. Some of the
generic windshields do not fit perfectly and may need some extra effort
on the part of the installer to fit your vehicle. However all windshields
installed by MasterGlass are safe and pass federal regulations.
What Type should You Choose
Despite that quality differences between the categories of glass, most
people will not notice a difference. So your choice depends on a number
of factors. Is the car your pride and joy? Will you be selling it soon?
At MasterGlass we recommend OEM or factory equiavalent windshields, simply
because the price difference is not great enough to even consider a lower
quality generic windshield. The difference is usually only $15-25.
