The windshield replacement process at Carolina Windshield Centers generally takes an industry-low two hours. This includes replacing the windshield and the wait time required for the adhesives to fully set.
The actual windshield replacement work takes about one hour. This includes removing the old windshield, clearing out any broken glass, and sealing in the new OEM windshield in with our Sika brand urethane adhesive. This service takes one hour in one of our shops or on location.
After the windshield replacement is complete, we require you to wait one hour for the Safe Drive Away Time. The Carolina Windshield Centers one hour Safe Drive Away Time is an industry low wait time. After the adhesive is applied at 180 degrees, it takes one hour for the adhesive to cool and completely set with the strongest seal.
