Patriot Auto Glass performs thousands of safe auto glass replacements every year. In most cases, it is the windshield that’s damaged but we also replace side windows, rear windows, and sunroofs. We use only factory-authorized glass from industry-approved sources. We only use premium Sika brand urethane adhesive for the strongest seal possible. Safe drive away time varies with temperature and humidity levels. But, it typically takes about an hour for the adhesive to cure properly. If it is dry and above 15°, we can replace your glass right in your own driveway or workplace parking lot.
In cases of minor breakage, a windshield repair instead of a full replacement can often restore the integrity of the glass. The technician injects a resin-based bonding agent into the damaged area. This stops the windshield from cracking further and restores optical clarity. Once a repair is complete, the driver’s view is no longer impaired by the damage. If you look closely there will be some residual scarring where the glass was filled with the bonding agent. Windshield repairs are less expensive and take less time than full replacements. They are covered by most insurance companies, most of which will wave the deductible if the windshield is simply repaired instead of being replaced.
