A: Most of the time no, a safe installation can be achieved on a mobile basis. As a full service shop we can offer the convenience of a mobile installation but during the cold, rainy Northwest weather we will recommend an in shop installation to achieve the safety standards our customers have come to expect. Be wary of mobile only installers who have no choice but to mobile in all weather conditions. Our mobile service area for windshield and other autoglass replacement covers the Kitsap Peninsula from the Belfair-Allyn area through Port Orchard and Silverdale up to Kingston and Bainbridge Island.

A: Your windshield is a critical part of your vehicle’s safety restraint system. It does more than protect you from wind, inclement weather and debris. Your windshield keeps you safe in a rollover accident by, minimizing occupant ejection from the vehicle, preventing roof crush and supporting passenger side airbag deployment. You can be assured that AutoGlass Plus as a registered AGRSS shop will safely install your windshield!
A: Most glass installation requires your car not be driven for about 2 hours total. Once the old glass has been removed and the new one set in place with urethane (the bonding agent), the car must set for an hour to allow the urethane to harden enough to meet the manufacturer’s safe drive away time. Cold weather and difficult installations can increase this time. The 1 hour cure time urethane is considerably more expensive than the more common 6-10 hour cure time urethanes, but your time and safety is our priority.
