Frequently Asked Questions!

 

Q
How important is auto glass in the event of an accident?
APlenty, the windshield is an important part of the structural integrity of your vehicle. In a rollover accident, the windshield provides strength, by helping to keep the roof from caving in on passengers. In some models the windshield is 50% of the vehicles rollover strength. Also when an airbag is deployed it hits the windshield using it as a back board to then cushion the passenger. If a windshield is installed improperly the airbag will hit the windshield and blow it out, not cushioning the passengers. With the windshield gone there is no way to keep the passengers in the vehicle.
Q
How do I know if my insurance covers auto glass?
AAuto glass is typically covered under comprehensive coverage. You should have this if you carry “full coverage” and if you have a deductible that will be out of pocket which you will be responsible for.
Q
Will Just Glass and Mirror handle my insurance paperwork?
AJust Glass and Mirror will do all of the paperwork for your claim! We are happy to assist you in making that call to get the claim set up and your windshield replaced.
Q
What do I do if I work the same hours you’re open?
AWe are a customer service oriented business and we will help by keeping this replacement at your convenience in every possible way. If needed, we can replace your auto glass at your home or business. If you are coming to our shop for your replacement we will happily drive you to a nearby restaurant or store and bring your car to you when finished.
Q
How long will it be before my shower is installed?
AIt generally takes approximately 14 business days from the time of the final measurement, deposit and sign off by customer. We do the final measure normally within 24 hours of request or sooner.

Each panel takes approximately 1.5 hours to install. So a door and panels should take about three hours. We schedule appointments first jobs in morning.

Q
Will my shower leak?
AGood question! A properly designed and installed shower under normal shower conditions will have minimal water seepage. We also add vinyl seals at the bottom and either side of the door to keep the water inside the unit. Under direct pressure from the shower head, water will penetrate the seals. Again we refer back to the design phase. Water sprayed directly at a hinge will seep through.

Handheld sprays should not be directed in these areas when cleaning as you will get the same results.

Q
Will my shower need a header?
AThere are times when some panels are just too big and will need top support to limit the movement of the panel and make it safe for the occupants.

The better question is, can I deal with the noise and vibration and shudder of the door closing onto an unsupported panel. The further the panel is from the wall the more insecure it becomes.

In no event would we install an unsafe panel, but when some of these panels fall within the safe limits that the industry adheres to, there will be movement in the panel.

Once the unit is installed we cannot give the unit support without remaking the door or panel at additional cost to you. We suggest you stop by our showroom to open and close a few door to get the feel.

Q
How do I clean my door?
AThere are many different cleaning agents out there. Read the labels and make sure there are no abrasives in them. Learn more about the many glass protectants available to help keep your doors from spotting and staining. Visit www.diamonfusion.com.

These products work like Rain X does on your windshield, except they all come with a ten-year or more manufacturer warranty. Weekly or monthly applications are not needed. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning. In my estimation they are particularly good investments especially for the individual who does the cleaning of the shower. In one case, we installed a three-panel shower and within three weeks the customer called to complain that the glass protectant wasn’t working. We notified the manufacturer and they went to the site to check. Sure enough the protectant was on only two of the three panels. They sent us a new panel and we went back and removed the old and replaced it with the new one. We haven’t heard from them since.

Q
Are you insured, how long have you been in business?
AYes, we are fully insured and have been in business for 32 years.

If a problem should occur because of our installation it would be noticeable immediately but we warrant our craftsmanship for 1-year.

Q
Do you have a showroom?
AYes, along with 15 shower doors on display. Our showroom also has a beautiful mirror and other glass related displays. Stop in or you can make an appointment with our sales department.
