The Budget Auto Glass Difference: Safer, Stronger Auto Glass for San Diego

One little piggy built his house out of straw. The second piggy used twigs, while the third piggy, the wiser piggy, took the time and effort to build his house out of sturdy brick. We all know how the story ends: a story that still rings true in our everyday lives. At Budget Auto Glass, San Diego drivers are strongly encouraged to be the wiser piggy. The quality of the auto glass and the effort put into its installation are factors that will significantly improve the safety of your vehicle and your overall well being.

Safety first, San Diego. Auto glass accounts for up to 60 percent of the roof crush protection when a driver is involved in a rollover incident. In other words, your windshield is the number one reinforcement that keeps your vehicle from caving in on you. The windshield also serves as your airbag system’s back support in the event of a front collision. The most important aspect of your vehicle is and will always be safety. Cutting corners when it comes to the safety of your vehicle can prove to be extremely dangerous to yourself and others. This is especially true in a city where we almost always have to drive in order to commute to work, to school, or to the many leisure activities in San Diego. Budget Auto Glass protects you from more than just the wind so to call our auto glass a “windshield” is a misnomer.

Be original. OEM glass, or Original Equipment Manufacture glass, is engineered to meet the safety standards of your vehicle’s original manufacturer. At Budget Auto Glass, we make sure that your windshield matches the exact specifications, fit and finish of your automobile, to reduce the possibility of air and water leaks. With all the time we spend under the sun, San Diego drivers will also benefit from UV Protection and heat reflective surfaces. Premium quality auto glass is also made crystal clear for maximum driver visibility, free of the flaws, scratches, and distortion that are characteristic of second-hand auto glass.

Insured or Unsure? Budget Auto Glass in San Diego is fully licensed and insured. That means our technicians are certified to install and inspect your auto glass to meet the strict standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Association. Unlicensed and uninsured auto glass shops will outsource the job, will use cheap product, and will not abide by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. An improperly installed windshield can pop out during a car accident, which will put you in danger of being ejected or crushed by your own vehicle. Budget auto glass offers the best Autoglass replacement El Cajon, San Diego service at affordable prices.

The Big Bad Wolf comes in many forms: a pebble that ricochets from the pavement, scratching the glass in your line of vision; a careless driver texting their way into your lane; or even a rainy day, although the latter is rare in San Diego. Budget Auto Glass will be your brick house, with sturdy premium quality auto glass, and a team of certified technicians who really care. From all of us at Budget Auto Glass, stay classy, and drive safely, San Diego.

Facts About Glass

  • All glass is not the same grade and quality.
  • OE stands for original equipment ( dealer part )
  • OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer ( dealer part w/o logo)
  • AM stands for aftermarket
  • G stands for generic ( manufacturer reject )
  • Glass pricing varies from one company to another from $100 and more, glass pricing is based on quality of parts provided, adhesives and chemicals used, installation and services. So when companies give you a ridiculously low rate they will cut corners no matter what they tell you. And normally they aren’t licensed or insured to afford rates like that.
  • Bottom line you get what you pay for
  • Don’t compromise your safety and investment to just anyone.
  • Using high quality adhesive prevents the pinch weld from rusting and forms a stronger bond.
  • Correct windshield replacement supports your roof in case of a rollover
