Windshield Replacement and Mobile Installation
Because most adhesives used for replacements are designed to be used in warmer weather, you will need to do an in-shop replacement rather than a mobile replacement. Winter does not always necessitate an in-shop replacement, but there is a good chance that you will.
In cold temperatures, the windshield resin takes longer to cure properly. However, because the installation temperature is higher and the adhesive cures faster during in-shop replacement, this curing time can be significantly reduced. Curing can take much longer for mobile windshield replacements.
Moisture in general, whether it's winter or spring/autumn, can cause issues during windshield replacement, especially if you're doing it on the go. In order for the adhesive resin to cure properly, the surface must be completely dry. However, if you choose an in-store replacement, you won't have to worry about it.
Winter is notorious for its unpredictable precipitation and humidity, making mobile windshield replacement difficult. Moisture can become trapped between the new windshield and the frame, then freeze and expand due to the cold temperature, causing the windshield to loosen over time.
To avoid this issue, replace the windshield in-shop and look for an experienced auto glass technician who is certified by the Auto Glass Safety Council and understands how to perform these replacements.
