A windshield shade band is a strip of tinting, often blue, green or gray in color, applied to the top of your windshield where it meets the roof line.
The shade band, or sun strip / glare strip as it is sometimes called, blocks the sunlight coming in through that portion of your windshield, preventing glare and protecting your eyes from the sun.
The point at which the windshield meets the roof line is a structurally sensitive area of the glass, but most rock chips in the shade band area can be easily repaired. We may also be able to repair cracks in the sun shade area with our patented long crack repair system, but if repair isn’t an option, we’ll install a quality replacement windshield.
