Berk's Auto Repair Center
I'd like to share with you one of the best mechanics on long island that won't rip you off. Berk's is located in Nassau county at 560 Sunrise Hwy, Baldwin, New York. I have search many years to find a mechanic as good as I was that will not sell me a bill of goods but actually repair my car at a reasonable price. Let's face it the older you get the less time you want to spend working on your car especially when your retired. I still do minor work but the big stuff I can bring to berks and have peace of mind. I've never told him about my mechanic background for a reason. Throughout the years he has never once tried to charge me for work that wasn't necessary. I recently moved out of Nassau county and tried to find other mechanics to do the same with no luck, So I travel from Suffolk county about an hour and fifteen minutes. I greatly appreciate his honesty.
Tips & Advices
If you have comprehensive coverage, some - if not all - of the windshield repair and replacement costs are covered by the insurance company. Check with your insurance company to inquire about what they are able to pay. It’s also important to consider the deductible. If the cost of the replacement/repair is greater than the current deductible, the insurance company can cover the difference. But if the repair costs are less than the deductible, you will have to pay the full cost out of pocket.
Generally, most professionals can install a new windshield in around one hour and can make repairs in less than 30 minutes.
Wait 24 hours before entering a car wash with a new or repaired windshield. The high water pressures and cleaning chemicals could damage the windshield adhesive.
Most professional installers advise waiting an hour before driving again with a new or repaired windshield.
The cost of replacing a windshield can vary even more than getting it repaired, because the vehicle’s make and model, not the severity of the crack/chip, determine costs. Newer and higher-end vehicles cost more to have their windshields replaced because certain manufacturers use modified or proprietary glass types.
