Having a damaged windscreen is never fun. Once the experts here at My Windscreen London have assessed the damage and scheduled your replacement, you will be back on the road in no time. It may seem like replacing an entire windscreen would take several days, but in actuality, you can get it in and out as quickly as a single afternoon. The actual windscreen replacement process will only take about an hour. One thing is for certain, although the actual replacement only takes an hour at most, preparation is the key to an effectively placed windscreen.
Your windscreen also makes up more than half of your vehicles cabin strength. If it is not installed correctly, it can lead to leaks as well as compromise the structural integrity and safety of your car. We always take the time to properly prepare your car ahead of replacement and makes sure your windscreen is properly fitted for maximum safety.
Cars that have been compromised are unqualified to receive a windscreen replacement. If your vehicle was involved in a car accident that has resulted in damage to the frame, that will need to be repaired first. Once the frame has been restored to its original state, then a windscreen replacement can be completed. This is to ensure that the glass sets properly and provides the right amount of protection once the job is complete. Our service technicians will also check your frame for signs of rust, or other wear and tear to ensure your vehicle is as safe as possible.
We use OEM certified replacement windscreens for each of our clients. While we do carry a stock that contains the most common makes and models, it’s a good idea to call ahead. Speak with one of our customer service agents to let us know the make and model of your car ahead of your replacement. If you have an older car, a specialty car, a luxury model or certain SUV’s we will need to pre-order your windscreen before your appointment.
Once you have booked your appointment here at My Windscreen London and your car glass has arrived, we will take it from there. The replacement will take as little as 30 minutes to as long as an hour. After the windscreen has been installed, we will run a test on the seals to ensure the fitting is secure. Once the seals have been tested, the adhesive will be allowed to dry and set for a specific amount of time.
We suggest you allow your car to sit for at least an hour before driving away from the shop. If there is bad weather such as rain or snow, we may ask you to wait longer or leave your car overnight. Several weather conditions can have an adverse effect on the new seals on your windscreen. It is critical to keep your new car glass protected from inclement weather and to park it in a sheltered location.
