Windshield Replacement – How is it Done?

Repair and replacement of the windshield of the car

Glass America provides the safest windshield repair and replacement service possible. Our technicians use advanced techniques and follow rigid procedures on all installations so you can rest assured that your family is safe.

Before your windshield replacement begins, our technicians will explain the following steps, which will take place during the installation:

  1. The damaged windshield will be fully removed from the vehicle.
  2. A new Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM)or Original Equipment Equivalent (OEE) quality glass windshield will be matched for perfect fit and features to your car and inserted into the frame.
  3. The windshield will be secured to your car’s frame with a high quality-fast drying adhesive to be sure the glass is secured before your drive away. Glass America has a one-hour safe drive-away drying period in most weather conditions.
  4. Any broken glass and debris will be vacuumed out of the inside of the vehicle and the auto glass on the vehicle will be cleaned.
  5. Your technician will answer any additional questions you may have, regarding the replacement and advise you of the one-hour wait time for the adhesive to dry in order for you to drive off, safely.
