ADAS calibration (and recalibration) is the precise physical alignment, testing, and electronic aiming of sensors that collect data to inform your vehicle’s advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Some of these features include: Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Blind Spot Monitoring, Autonomous Valet Parking, Night Vision, Autonomous Driving, as some examples. Every year these benefits become a bigger part of the vehicle, and must be recalibrated every time a piece or part of the system is moved, or replaced, without exception.
The most important window on a vehicle is the windshield. The front glass is up to 60% of your vehicle’s structural strength (roof crush and roll over ratings) and part of the safety restraint system (air bag deflection). This makes the use of an AGRSS (Auto Glass Safety Council) certified shop extremely important when replacement of the windshield is required. We are proud to have the only AGRSS Master Certified Tech in Nevada on our team.
No short cuts are taken. All parts surrounding the windshield that must be removed in order to replace the windshield to the AGRSS standard will be done as such. This ensures that proper fit, adhesion, and safety standards are met. In-shop replacement is the preferred method, due to heat and other elements that can affect the adhesives, although we do offer mobile installation if you can’t make it to us.
We use chemical cure urethanes that ensure safe drive-away in one hour. Many shops don’t like to have cars that just sit, but to ensure that the adhesive used to bond the windshield to the vehicle is completely dry and safe, cars must be left to sit. If you were to drive away before the one hour cure time was complete and get in an accident, the passenger air bag would blow the windshield out of the vehicle, which is why we insist on a full one hour of wait time before you drive away.
For as little as $75, you can have your chip or crack repaired, which is far less expensive than replacing the glass in its entirety. Especially if you have ADAS systems that might need recalibrated. Just call your insurance company to see if your deductible will be waived, then tell them that Team Acme Inc. in Henderson 702-566-8326 will be doing the repair and they will dispatch a free insurance claim to our shop. It doesn’t get any cheaper than free!
This is a special kind of glass replacement that involves laminated glass. Laminated glass consists of two flat glass pieces that are fit together using a polymer bond. Once bonded, the glass is cut to the proper shape and size to fit a particular application. This includes heavy equipment, box trucks, antique car doors, and flat windshields, or any other vehicles that use flat automotive glass.
After replacing and restoring auto glass on various classic cars, hot rods, and specialty vehicles, we recognize how different the needs of each vehicle truly are. This is why we offer custom auto glass fabrication for vehicle owners who need something out of the ordinary. Whether for a classic car, a hot rod, or a completely custom project, we have all the tools and skills necessary to restore or replace your auto glass.
Various types of RVs, including motor homes, suffer a great deal of wear and tear from long drives. The glass windows and windshields of these vehicles are frequently damaged by debris that gets kicked up on the highway. Bad weather can also damage them, with debris from thunderstorms or hailstones. The sun can also damage the interiors.
While it’s always best to repair a chip or crack, sometimes it’s just not possible. When the windshield or windows of your motor home need replacement, trust a shop that has a track record of being able to get those large windows back in place. That includes jacking the coach body back into place, after a jack malfunction, or a road complication that caused an unforeseen crack to appear from nowhere.
Side by sides are one of the new biggest things. And they get faster and more custom every year. If you have a new cage built, or have a fabricator building a windshield frame, we can make a laminated windshield and gasket to fit your newest upgrade. Or if you need a new windshield made because the old one broke, just bring down your frame and drop it off. We have a turn around time of less than 24 hours in most cases.
Auto glass repair can potentially affect your auto insurance in several ways, and you might have some misconceptions about the relationship between auto glass repairs and your vehicle’s insurance policy. It is important to understand how your insurance policy works with various auto glass repairs so that you can get the most out of your policy and pay as little as possible.
If you possess liability only coverage on your vehicle and are in need of auto glass repair or replacement, you should know that your vehicle will not be covered under your insurance policy. This is because liability only insurance only covers damage that your vehicle does to another vehicle. Any repairs that your vehicle may need for any reason, including auto glass repair, are not covered under a liability only insurance policy.
Our auto glass repair specialists work with our administrative staff to contact your insurance company, fill out any claims needed, verify coverage, and gather information from insurance companies about policy limits and your deductible. We have worked with many insurance companies and know how to make arrangements with them to save you time and stress.
More often than not, an insurance company will not count auto glass repairs against you if you file a claim for them. Auto glass damage occurs for any number of reasons, many of which you cannot control or be held accountable for. However, there are scenarios in which auto glass repairs will affect your premium rates, such as auto glass damage as the result of an accident in which you are at fault. It is important that you contact your insurance provider so that you can be aware of which causes of auto glass damage do and do not affect your rates.
If you do not have insurance coverage for your auto glass repairs, don’t worry. We take credit cards, cash, and checks if you plan to fund your own auto glass repairs and replacements. Cracks and chips in your windshield will only get worse over time, so call now.
