Original manufacturer glass
Dams uses the highest quality equipment, sealant, and glass to ensure your windshield fits properly, meets safety standards, and performs correctly.
Original glass is used for all windshield repairs. We use your car manufacturer's glass for integrity and fit. When it comes to newer Fords, a genuine Ford windshield is necessary to integrate with camera systems that inform everything from lane departure warnings to autonomous braking to rain sensors.
SoundScreen® acoustic glass is used in almost all Ford and Lincoln models. This glass significantly softens noise coming from the engine, tires, and wind while driving – improving the overall cabin experience.
Structural integrity is essential in a crash, so that the windshield remains in the frame when an airbag activates.

Ask for genuine Ford parts after a collision
In Canada, if your vehicle is not a current-year model, insurance companies can ask autobody shops to use aftermarket parts for collision repairs. Aftermarket parts are not made by the vehicle manufacturer. Many drivers aren't aware of this, so if you want genuine parts used in a collision repair, contact your insurance company and ask for an upgrade.
Next, when an appraisal is done following a collision, ask the autobody shop what parts they are going to use, and be sure to request genuine Ford parts (or whatever make and model you drive).
