Fix Your Chips on June 12th

Ray Sands Glass is proud to be partnering with our friends at 92 WBEE, Today’s Country Station, to invite Rochester area residents to our Fix It Fast Festival!   The Bee’s own Newman will be joining us as host of the event, where we will be encouraging car owners to come in and get their minor windshield chips and nicks repaired FREE, before it turns into a larger problem.

The festival will take place on June 12th from 10am to noon, with a special offer on Aquapel rain repellent applications as well as the chip repairs.  You can come in and have the long-lasting windshield treatment applied by our own glass professionals for a special price of $9.25, with some of the proceeds from this service going to our local Goodwill organization.

We will also be accepting donations at the Fix It Fast Festival for Goodwill –  including clothing, small furniture and appliances, books and computers and anything that could be of use instead of eventually filling a landfill.  If you think that someone else could use it, Goodwill will probably take it!   So get rid of any useful items cluttering up your home and bring them down to Ray Sands Glass – you can enjoy some snack chips, fix you windshield chips and make a contribution to a worthy local charity, all while enjoying some great music and even better people.

The Best Auto Glass for the Best Windshield Replacement

Everyone one knows that the best fit for any car’s windshield is the original glass that was installed when the car was manufactured.  Since life happens, it’s often not an option to keep the automobile’s original glass.  Fortunately, there is a best alternative – replacement glass made by the Original Equipment Manufacturer, or OEM Glass.

Many people don’t realize that when auto makers are designing and testing vehicles, the OEM glass manufacturers are intrinsically involved in the entire process.  OEM glass companies such as PPG, Carlite and Pilkington  go through the research and development process of each automobile with the maker.    And while some aftermarket glass companies make a decent quality product, it most often isn’t a product that has been crash tested in your vehicle.  While OEM companies are working with auto makers to meet their exact safety and stress specifications, aftermarket companies are only required to meet a basic standard.   Continue reading
