Vehicle Windshield Options
Modern vehicles commonly have technological features in their windshields that are designed to assist you in certain driving situations. Some auto glass shops lack the ability to properly handle these types of features when replacing windshields. The professionals at Clayton's Glass not only know how to work around these sophisticated systems, but also urge our customers to learn how to identify these features in their own vehicles.
