Eynon, PA -- (SBWire) -- 11/07/2017 --Auto Glass Fitters, the leading mobile auto glass replacement company in Savannah, GA and throughout the country, is happy to explain the process in which all of their certified technicians go through when performing a windshield replacement:

1. Pre-work includes pre-inspection and protecting vulnerable areas from damage during the replacement.

2. Parts removal includes removal of moldings, wipers, cowl and trim and carefully cutting out the old windshield from the polyurethane adhesive with a variety of power and hand tools.

3. Surface preparation includes trimming the old polyurethane adhesive evenly to 1/16 of an inch. This step can take some time but ensures a quality fit and bond of the new windshield.

4. Proper urethane application requires use of primers and quick setting polyurethane adhesives that meet or exceed Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) requirements. Auto Glass Fitters only uses polyurethane adhesive systems that provide a safe drive away time of no more than one hour.

5. Glass installation requires that the technician thoroughly clean and apply activator to the glass and allow the precise amount of time for the activator to dry before installing it on the newly applied polyurethane. The technician then replaces the moldings, wipers, cowl and trim removed in Step 2 and cleans any debris left over from the replacement process. In addition, the technician will reinstall the rear-view mirror, toll transponders, transfer inspection stickers and remount remote starter components as required.

6. Post-work includes inspecting the vehicle one last time and providing clear instructions on the safe drive-away time until the adhesive fully cures and the vehicle is safe to drive.
