Scotia Auto Glass will bring the solution to you

Scotia Auto Glass
Kelly Bent
Our society has turned towards quick fixes. We demand immediate solutions to
problems and obstacles. The downside to most instant solutions is they are
not always sound, leaving us frustrated. So, when a windshield chip or crack
happens who has the time to remain at a garage for up to half a day? No one!
Scotia Auto Glass has been a 100 per cent mobile glass replacement and
repair operation for over 30 years. "We are all about saving time and
money for each client. We don't have long waits and we don't require a minimum
amount of bookings before we will come to an area. If someone needs glass
repair for their vehicle, home, commercial property or boat we are quickly
on the way," explains Ron Tibert, owner and operator of Scotia Auto Glass.
This premium service doesn't come with a premium price tag. The mobile
service is of no extra cost to the customer. "We are all about customer
service and convenience."

The first step with glass repair or replacement is to diagnose the problem.
"A quick email or phone call from a client to one of our trained
technicians gives us the information we need to get the ball rolling on the job and all
our quotes are free. If the client describes a bulls-eye crack, half moon
crack or spider crack we know most often they can be repaired," says
Tibert. "Glass chips can spread very quickly and should be dealt with right away
or they will lead to windshield replacement." Windshield repair and
replacement can be done in the home owners' driveway or garage. "The entire job
usually takes less than and hour and the client can stay in the comfort of their own
home or office." Scotia Auto Glass is also approved by all major insurance
companies. This ensures quick processing of claims and all work comes with a
lifetime warranty. "Our workmanship is guaranteed for as long as you own
your vehicle." Scotia Auto Glass also has access to the largest warehouses
in Canada.  This means the customers don't have long waits for materials.
Safety is of the utmost importance to Scotia Auto Glass. "A windshield is
a key component in the structural integrity of a vehicle. Having a repair done
correctly and quickly is critical to the safety of passengers." Ron and
his technicians are constantly training and upgrading to offer the best
solutions to their customers. "We aren't stumped by a challenge. We always
try to come up with the best solutions to serve the client's needs."
Keep the name Scotia Auto Glass at the top of your to do list. They will be
your saving solution to any glass problem. For more information or to

Insurance Co's, CAA and Scotia Glass in Atlantic Canada are cautioning the public about Spring potholes-

DAILY NEWS Mar 29, 2011 4:45 PM
Spring has arrived - and so have potholes

State Farm in Canada, CAA-Quebec and glass dealers in Atlantic Canada are cautioning the public about one of the traditional rites of Spring — potholes.
Most roadways are built in layers, starting with earth and gravel for drainage and then covered with a layer of asphalt.
Cracks in the asphalt layer cause water to seep into the lower layers, where the water freezes and expands. Some of the underlying dirt and gravel is displaced as a result of the water freezing, leaving a hole when the water eventually melts.
When the asphalt layer over top of these holes collapses, the result is a pothole.

Broken Windshields, Big Potholes

Increase in cracked windshields as Nova Scotia thaw creates more pot holes

Scotia Auto Glass employees have noticed more customers saying their windshield broke after hitting a pothole, and comment that the costs affect all Nova Scotia Drivers.

Nova Scotia’s spring time thaws seem to create potholes everywhere and force drivers to swerve around or take the impact of driving over the hole. This can cause a chipped windshield to break, making the car unsafe to drive. Halifax’s Q104 has a twitter “call out” to find and photo the biggest potholes in Nova Scotia. (@Q104Halifax)

“HRM would like to advise residents that Municipal Operations crews will be working to patch potholes in the coming days.” - says Halifax website and more information on potholes can be found at

A windshield provides 30% of a car’s structural strength and if damaged by a crack, it requires an immediate replacement. Around one in six car windshields have a chip which can be quickly and easily repaired to make the windshield as good as new, usually at no cost to the vehicle owner.

Ron Tibert, of Scotia Auto Glass says: “Drivers are forced to hit potholes while driving since it is unsafe to jerk the wheel in traffic, and are absorbing an increasing bill for the poor state of some roads. However by getting a chip repaired before it turns into a crack, drivers can protect themselves from an expensive insurance claim and make certain their windshield is as strong as new.”

It is estimated that 80% of Nova Scotia car owners have comprehensive insurance and nearly all insurance companies will cover rock chip repairs for free. Scotia Auto Glass, a company that comes to you, will repair your windshield onsite to further reduce the risk to driver’s vehicles. Deductibles for a cracked windshield average about $250.
