Posted by Jaime Block on Dec 03, 2015


Getting a chip or crack in your windshield is not one of the most fun or exciting things to happen during your day.  Rest assured, when you choose AGD Auto Glass & Tint Co to do the work,fixing or replacing your windshield is much easier than it was to break it!  Below you will find some frequently asked questions and the answers to those questions.  Here we go…

After having my windshield replaced, how soon can I drive my car?

This is usually based upon a number of different factors, however, more than likely you won’t be out of a ride for very long. On average, the driver can usual get back into his or her vehicle about one hour after the windshield has been worked on.

Can I get my car washed immediately? 

AGD Auto Glass & Tint Co recommends that customers  who have had a windshield replacement done wait one full day until washing their car again.

How long should i leave the blue tape on my windshield?

The actual time is not very long, however, we recommend that the tape remain in place for 24 hours after time of installation.

Before filing a claim for auto glass replacement, Do I need to contact my insurance agent first ?

No, AGD Auto Glass & Tint co will do all of that work for you. Just make sure you have comprehensive vehicle insurance as well as your policy information when you call for an appointment.

If I have full-coverage comprehensive insurance on my vehicle, how much do I pay for the windshield to be replaced?

If you have full-coverage comprehensive insurance written in the state of Arizona on a vehicle, your comprehensive deductible is waived on all auto glass replacement. There is no out-of-pocket expense to you, but make sure you don’t have a deductible with your insurance company.

Is your glass the same quality of glass that was installed in my car at the time of manufacturing?

All of the glass that we use for installations meets all DOT standards and qualifications.  All of our glass is the finest quality and our technicians have been trained on every make and manufacturer.

In Arizona you can get many different brands of tint, but the basic levels we provide are:

  • 5% Limo
  • 20% Mid-Grade
  • 30% Legal

 Do I need to drive to the shop and wait for my windshield to be replaced?

No, you do not need to be present at the time of installation; however, for many installation types it is necessary that we gain access inside the vehicle or that we have access to keys to the vehicle. Although your presence is not required, it is helpful when someone is there to assist us with our needs.  We are happy to come during the day to your home or office.  Scheduling an appointment usually only takes one to two days.

 Can you install my windshield even when it is raining or in bad weather?

No, in order to ensure proper adhesion, we can not install a windshield in the rain. However, if you have a covered or enclosed area, such as a garage, or if you can get your vehicle to such an area, like a car wash, we can perform the installation under cover out of the elements.
