Man driving a car

Prevent and Avoid Unnecessary Stress or Pressure on Glass

Take care to prevent any unnecessary stress or pressure on the brand-new glass. Although we do quality work at our auto glass repair shop, it’s important to be gentle with your care while the adhesive finishes sealing. It’s best to avoid slamming your car’s doors, making risky driving decisions, and taking any hard curbs.

Car wash

Do Not Wash for a Few Days

With your new windshield looking so great, it might be tempting to take your entire car through the carwash so it can be equally fresh all over. But it’s best to avoid washing your car for the first few days after your windshield replacement. High water pressure can damage the deal and cause leaking. You don’t have to worry about light rain and moisture!

Masking tape

Leave on Tape for a While

At Prestige Auto & Truck Glass, we use tape to secure your windshield during the replacement process. Leaving the tape on for at least a day, or longer if you can, will give the adhesive extra time to dry and ensure a perfect seal for the glass.
