How Long Does Windshield Installation Take?

A cracked or broken windshield is one of the many inconveniences car owners might come across. Cracks and chips in your windshield are not only annoying and unattractive but can also put you and other road users in danger if a windshield repair is not carried out promptly, especially since a damaged windshield can compromise your car’s structural integrity, impair your vision, and cause airbag malfunctions.

For these reasons, it’s important to contact an expert like Diamond Auto Glass for windshield repair and replacement in Phoenix, AZ as soon as possible.

The Installation Duration

Most people think that windshield replacement is a big hassle and tend to delay it for the longest time possible. They do so because they might not fully understand everything that goes into the replacement and how long it takes.

When done by an expert, the windshield installation process itself only takes about 30-60 minutes. During the installation, our technicians will remove your damaged windshield, apply an adhesive to the mounting area, and carefully put the new glass in place. This process is relatively simple but needs a lot of patience and precision for successful completion.

Waiting Period

Once we complete the windshield installation, we recommend that you wait for at least one hour to drive your car to allow it to sit correctly, especially if you also had your windshield tinting done. Overall, the replacement process should take anywhere from one and a half to two hours.

Why Professional Installation Is Worth the Wait

While you can become tempted to find an auto-body shop that guarantees the fastest replacement, it’s crucial to find a trained and certified expert, like Diamond Auto Glass, who will comply with all the installation guidelines even if it takes extra 30 minutes. Our qualified technicians will go over exactly how long the repair will take and address any concerns you might have before the process begins. We’ll also provide you with a written warranty and a record of our work.

Although a chipped or cracked windshield is a pain, replacing it doesn’t have to be a tedious and time-consuming endeavor. For professional and affordable windshield tinting, replacement, and repair services in Phoenix, AZ, and nearby areas, contact Diamond Auto Glass today.
