MOBILE WINDSHIELD INSTALLATION

We had a busy customer that was working in Sarnia that owned a Volkswagen Jetta call in. We were asked if we had a mobile service and where pleased to offer it. There are a couple things to keep in mind when we are booking mobile work.

First, it can’t be raining out! That one is pretty obvious, but the contamination from the rain may affect the way the glue cures after the installation. Second, it can’t get below 0ºC before the safe drive away time. The glue must remain above freezing for the cure time or the glue may not stick from the moisture caused by the reaction. Both reasons can normally be solved buy doing the job inside. One of my most important reasoning for completing the work in house is, it’s easier to try and repair or fix any sort of rust found during the installation with all our tools in the shop.

Once everything is inspected and authorized we head out with our mobile van. Hear we are just double checking the fit of our machine before we start to lay the adhesive. Once we start laying adhesive we only have 7 minutes before it starts to skin over and loose strength in our humid environment. Once the windshield has been installed, it takes 1 hour for our adhesive to safely cure and can be driven away.
