Many people are not aware of some precautions necessary once they have had some auto glass replaced on their vehicles. Â We sourced an article online which covers this very topic which we decided to share with you below.
WHAT TO DO AFTER AUTO GLASS REPLACEMENT
Itâ€™s important to replace an automobileâ€™s damaged glass as quickly as possible, both to preserve its value and to ensure that it can be driven safely. There are a few things that drivers should do after the replacement to help make sure that their new glass stays in good condition for years to come.
Check the Work
No qualified panel beater repair specialist will be offended if you take the time to check their work. Examine the new glass for cracks, leaks, and other damage. Check it again a few days after the work has been done to make sure that no new problems have developed.
Take Care of It
The new glass will be attached to your vehicle with a urethane sealant, but that sealant will take a little while to cure. Depending on local conditions and the precise sealant used, you may need to wait a few hours before you drive your car. Failure to do so can lead to leaks around the new glass. You should also wait a few days before apply stickers to the glass or exposing it to stressful conditions, such as an automated car wash. Ask your repair specialist for details before you get damaged glass replaced, and be sure to follow them carefully.
