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.
Unlike most other auto glass shops, Clayton's Glass can replace your windshield AND recalibrate your vehicle's windshield sensors.
With the advancement of automobile technology, many auto glass repair shops find it difficult to stay up-to-speed with the ever changing market. Whenever a windshield is replaced in a modern vehicle, the owner usually must return to a dealership to have the windshield's advanced safety features recalibrated.
