Have you ever gotten in to a older car or sometimes even a newer car, especially on a hot, damp day and the smell hits you. The smell of mold and mildew permeates the air, and you are certain that your going to smell just like that after you get out of the car. You may own such a vehicle. Here is what I can tell you. That smell is most likely coming from the improper installation of a windshield, door glass or back glass. Because of the improper installation moisture has gotten in to the cabin of the car or truck and has started mold and mildew growing. This is not a good situation on several levels. First, no one whats to ride, drive or sit in a car that has that smell. Second mold is not good for your allergies or your health. Third when you go to sell the car, no amount of pine tree scented mirror hangers can cover it up.
Now you are probably asking, “How can that be?”. It is really very simple. The installation of a windshield at the factory is done and tested either by a robot, or a human who has installed the windshield, door glass, or back glass thousands about thousands of times, and if you don’t think practice makes perfect you are wrong. So most likely when you car comes from the dealership it is water proof. However when you have to a windshield replaced because of a damaged glass, the person installing it, may be putting in their first windshield. There are plenty of auto glass repairmen who have decide that they can do windshield or other auto-glass, and eventually they will be able to, but you do not want them practicing on your car. Even the chain auto glass shops who’s bottom line is the most important part of their business, hire inexperienced installers to save money. A experienced, qualified auto glass installer is hard to find, and costs more to employ than an installer in their first couple years. This goes without saying.
These inexperienced installers make mistakes, and it is all apart of the learning process, but you do not want them learning and going to school on your car or truck. You see and windshield has water being driven at it at 70 mph or more. If there is even the slightest opening for water to get it, that moisture will be forced in to that weak point, every time you wash the car, it rains, or even just using the washer fluid and that moisture is what ends up giving you that horrible smell. A windshield or back glass is basically glued in, then clips are installed and the trim molding. This glue and it’s replacement is truly a art form and cannot possibly be done correctly without prior experience. American Auto Glass is owner operated, they are not a corporate owned entity, that hires the lowest cost installers. They truly care about each and every piece of auto glass they install because they are held accountable for every single install.
Let me ask you this, which would you rather have, a corporately owned business where the CEO is 1000 miles away installing you auto glass, or a locally owned business that you can speak to the owner if you ever have a problem with your service. That is a no brainier for sure.
So when you ask, “What is the best autoglass company in Cinti. Ohio?”. I can tell it the one where the owners stand behind every single piece of glass personally. American Auto Glass is just such a company and you can rest assured that their service after the sale is going to be there if you ever need it. Check them out on Angie’s List, Yelp, BBB, Google reviews, Site Jabber, Facebook reviews and or any online reviews site and you will see, the best auto glass business in Cincy is American Auto Glass!
