Uses specialty auto glass with the same features as the OEM one
Quick and efficient during installations
Very competitive price quotes for its glass and service
Transparent and knowledgeable in its repair recommendations
Not that consistent with its price quotes over the phone
A bit clumsy during installations in the past
Faith Auto Glass has got you covered with its variety of glass repair jobs that also include windshield replacement for cars.
It’s a family-owned shop, so you know that there will be familiarity within its team of staff members.
Although we can’t confirm if every single one of them is somewhat related, they nevertheless display efficiency in their respective tasks.
The team also displays a considerable amount of knowledge when it comes to assessing windshield damages and recommending the right approach.
Faith’s options include the usage of specialty auto glass, which is actually a very useful option to consider if you really want to maintain the factory features of your old windshield.
This kind of auto glass will give you access to windshield features such as defrosters and rain sensors.
With that, we think this is a really good shop to consider when you own a newer car, as it seems to have expertise in a lot of these kinds of windshield technology.
There seems to be not that much problem during installations for Faith, as the technicians are pretty quick and efficient for the most part.
We say “for the most part”, as the shop was a bit more clumsy during installations in the past.
But we’re glad to see that this is kept to a minimum nowadays. The amount of care and attention to detail demonstrated have significantly increased.
From what we’ve heard, Faith’s price quotes can be a hit or miss for some people.
While the shop’s services are generally very competitive in terms of pricing, this weirdly varies when you talk to its customer service over the phone sometimes.
Be wary of sudden price changes, and make sure that any shop will stick to the quotation you both originally agreed on.

Scope of Services
Very knowledgeable about windshield regulations in Texas

Great attention to detail and efficiency during services
Owner is very nice and accommodating towards all customers
Had technicians with inconsistent performance in the past
Doesn’t utilize any windshield molding
If window replacements offered at low prices are what you’re looking for, then Jacobs’ auto glass shop is a place that’s tough to beat.
We know what you might be thinking. A shop offering the cheapest prices around can’t be a good sign.
It’s common to assume that this probably means that the shop has also cheaped out on the quality of parts it uses.
But for Jacobs’ case, we’ve found that this couldn’t be any further from the truth. And we’ll tell you why.
While the shop might get doubted frequently because of its prices, its usage of high-quality windshield products can instantly make those doubts disappear.
Its technicians are also constantly trained to adjust to the ever-changing technology of the automotive world.
So feel free to bring even the newest of cars in which their windshields have already met their untimely demise with a random rock.
Whatever make or model of car it is, it can find a way to give you the perfect windshield fitment like the demise has never happened.
This is also applicable to any other window on your car, just like the door glass and vent glass.
Aside from Jacobs’ overall craftsmanship and efficiency, it’s also surprisingly very knowledgeable about windshield regulations in Texas.
It’s quite good to hear that it has gone the extra mile to ensure that what it’s putting on your car adheres to legal standards.
While it had technicians in the past that were pretty inconsistent with their jobs, we gladly see none of that kind of performance in more recent times.
One piece of info that we also like to point out is that windshield molding replacements are not really included in its services. This is because it chooses to use urethane sealants for the windshield gaps instead.
Other than that, Jacobs’ team is a friendly bunch to work with no matter who you are or what your car is.

Scope of Services
Very adept at its factory windshield resealing process
Generally quick to arrive at a customer’s location
Owner is very accommodating even in correcting mistakes
Also able to service entire fleets of vehicles
Management is sometimes in disarray regarding schedules and job orders
Used to be not that thorough in installations and cleaning up after
Reputation can speak volumes when finding a place to take care of your windshield, and we think GlassLogic is quite up there in terms of that.
Right off the bat, you don’t even need to worry about driving your car with a dilapidated windshield to it. Rather, it drives to you.
As far as windshield specialists go, GlassLogic’s team is very much qualified to assess any damage done to your windshield.
Of course, assessments are only half of the equation.
Their decades of expertise on all sorts of things that make windshields disintegrate allow them to know what exactly is the best approach to yours.
From beginning to end, we can see that the entire repair or replacement process is very seamless. Even the resealing process is one of the best that we’ve ever seen.
They’re also very knowledgeable and proactive in giving you safety precautions when the urethane sealant is still curing.
As we’ve pointed out in the beginning, they are a mobile service. And we can say that they’re generally quick to arrive at any customer’s location in the DFW area.
What’s also a great feature of GlassLogic’s services is that can replace an entire fleet’s worth of windshields.
This means that it’s one of the best windshield replacement services to reach out to for transportation companies and their big old semis.
The main drawback to GlassLogic would have to be its appointment-setting, as the management is sometimes in disarray regarding schedules and job orders.
Some technicians also used to not be that thorough in installations and cleaning up after, but we thankfully don’t hear much about these anymore nowadays.
FAQs about Windshield Replacement
What are some precautions after having your windshield replaced?
If you just got your windshield replaced, especially if the pieces of tape are still on, you should generally be careful about opening and closing any doors.
Since the adhesive is still curing at this point, you should avoid making the car’s chassis shake too much as it can loosen the sealant applied.
It’s good practice to let the car sit for at least one hour immediately after the new windshield has been installed.
Even after the hour mark, you should still drive as carefully as possible as the curing period will still be ongoing at this point.
Also, avoid washing your car for at least 24 hours, as this is an easy way to ruin the auto glass seal and even new moldings installed.
How long do new windshields take to cure?
While some types of adhesive only take an hour to dry completely, others can take up to 24 hours or more to get the best hold.
The curing period can also be affected by the overall temperature of the surroundings and even how much you use the car after the installation.
Make sure to ask your windshield service technicians about the nature of their sealants, as they can provide you with a more accurate estimate.
Can a small windshield crack get bigger?
No matter how small the crack is, it will always have a chance of getting worse the longer you drive the car. Small rocks may potentially hit the same area and cause even bigger damage.
In some instances, even letting the car sit under the sun for hours can cause the crack to spread out more.
If you can’t make it to the shop for now, then parking the car under the shade is your next best bet to stop it from getting any bigger.
How big of a crack can still be repaired?
The best windshield replacement services will know how to assess all sorts of cracks — only then will you know if your windshield’s still salvageable with repairs.
For short cracks that are 6 inches or less, they can still be remedied through repairs but will probably not make the windshield look as good as new.
Any crack that’s longer than this will probably still be salvageable through some repairs. But it’s slightly harder to find a shop that’s willing to repair longer cracks, as they’re believed to still pose risks even after repairs.
In that case, longer cracks will generally render the windshield as due for replacement, to be on the safer side.
