Windshield Replacement and Auto Glass Service

Frequently Asked Questions

After installation is complete, the urethane adhesive must be given time to dry. It is recommended that you wait at least one hour after installation before driving your vehicle. For auto glass service, you should allow at least two hours for installation and glue curing time before driving the vehicle.

If your windshield is damaged in some way and you have comprehensive or combined additional insurance coverage, we can guide you through the claim process with your insurer in the same call and make arrangements to have the windshield repaired for free. Otherwise if your vehicle has limited coverage we can offer a free estimate for an all-inclusive service at the convenience of your home or work, so you don't spend your time through your activities.

At Florida Prime Glass, we use Auto Glass Safety Council (AGSC) approved adhesive that cures in just one hour. Car wash warning: Don't go through a car wash after windshield replacement until 48 hours have passed. Rain, moisture, and hand-washing your vehicle wont cause any issue on the adhesive.

A cracked windshield is a safety hazard, and it's important to get it replaced or repaired as soon as possible. However, there are a few things you should avoid doing in the meantime, as they could make the crack worse:

  • Don't drive at high speeds. The wind pressure may cause the crack to spread.
  • Don't go through car washes. The brushes may damage the windshield and make the crack worse.
  • Don't slam the doors. The vibrations can cause the crack to spread.
  • Don't use the defroster or air conditioner. The differences of temperature may cause the glass to expand and contract, which can spread or worsen the crack.

Get a cracked windshield replaced or repaired ASAP! Temperature, sun, and other factors may increase the damage over time. Even a minor flaw can worsen, so don't wait. Contact a professional windshield replacement company today.  

When this happens, your windshield's structure tends to shift, thus weakening the corner of each crack or chip. In one day, these cracks will start spreading on a microscopic level. Within a few days, you will see marked differences in the crack with the naked eye.

If you have comprehensive or combined full coverage in your insurance policy, it's likely that any damage sustained to your windscreen will be covered.

Florida State Law 627.7288 states that the deductible provisions of any insurance policy issued in Florida are waived for any damage to the windshield.

Is a replacement better than a repair?

Windshield repair is an affordable solution for small cracks and chips, but it is important to note that it is a temporary solution. The visibility of a repaired windshield is not the same as a replacement windshield, and there is always the risk that the crack will reappear. If you have a small crack or chip in your windshield, windshield repair may be a good option for you. However, if the crack is larger or if you are concerned about visibility, windshield replacement is the best option.
