Think about your windshield. What do you really know about it?
You know it keeps bugs, road debris and wind out of the cab of your vehicle. You know it keeps you from getting wet when you’re driving in the rain. But there’s very little information available to consumers about the types of auto glass produced by different manufacturers.
Your auto insurance provider will pay a glass shop a fixed price for installing a new windshield, no matter what kind of glass they use. The lack of consumer information available about windshield glass creates a knowledge gap that makes it easy for disreputable glass shops to take advantage of their customers by installing cheap glass.
