Common Questions about a windshield replacement:

How long does it take to install a windshield? Most vehicles require about an hour and a half to properly install the windshield.

How soon can I drive my car after my glass is replaced? This will depend on the type of urethane adhesive used to install the glass in your vehicle. Because most automotive grade urethanes rely on temperature and humidity to cure, the time required varies widely depending on the manufacturer. This time frame can range from 1 hour up to 24 hours before your vehicle will meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and is considered safe to drive. At Mr. Windshield we use a fast-cure urethane that allows a 1 hour drive-away time with passenger side airbags and 30 min without.

How soon after can I wash my vehicle? We recommended that you wait 24 hours before washing your vehicle after your windshield has been replaced. The high pressure from the car washes can damage the seal and outer moldings before the urethane has a chance to cure sufficiently. This can cause your windshield not to seal properly and may cause wind noise & leaking.

What is the difference between OEM Dealer, OEM aftermarket, and OEE Aftermarket Glass?

 

1. Dealer Auto Glass

This is the windshield or other auto glass that you purchase from an automobile dealership authorized by the vehicle manufacturer to service your car. This glass is sourced from the same OEM distributor that manufactured your auto glass originally, and will often have the vehicle's make stamped on it.
 

2. OEM Aftermarket

OEM glass is made to the same specifications as dealer glass, but not necessarily by the same distributor. For example, an OEM aftermarket Honda windshield will be the same color, durability, thickness, size, and shape as the original windshield specs from Honda. Windows labeled "OEM" are virtually identical to dealer glass except they aren't always made by the same company that originally contracted with your vehicle manufacturer.

Why? Automobile companies change auto glass contracts from year to year, so the company that made your 1990 Honda Civic may not be the same company that manufactured your 2004 Honda Civic window.

Your Honda window may have originally been produced by PPG, so that's the brand you'd get if you went to the dealer. But if you went to an auto glass shop, you'd get your Honda window from another reputable OEM distributor (Pilkington or FY) who makes the exact same windshield, to the same specifications. Because your windshield wasn't made by PPG, it doesn't qualify as dealer auto glass, but it's just as good. It's so good that if you return a leased vehicle with an OEM distributor windshield, it will still be accepted by the dealer. All OEM distributors contract with one or more of the various car manufacturers, and that's what qualifies them as Original Equipment Manufacturers.  
 

OEM Distributors

OEE (Original equipment equivalent)
OEE Aftermarket glass is made by companies that do not contract with any car manufacturers, and do not have the legal right to manufacture auto glass to the exact same specifications as OEM distributors due to licensing and copyright laws. Aftermarket glass is significantly cheaper than OEM aftermarket or dealer glass. OEE windshields and other types of auto glass suppliers arecompanies that participate solely in aftermarket products, where the tight quality control requirements of auto manufacturersmay be possibly bypassed. It is said that they typically produce the part by reverse engineering an OEM part to get dimensionsas they may not be privy to original equipment specifications for fit, finish and performance.
