Frequently Asked Questions

ASK THE GLASS EXPERTS

Yes, Plymouth Glass & Mirror offers free mobile glass service in CT for auto glass replacements.

Plymouth Glass & Mirror offers a full-life warranty on your windshield replacement for the life you own your vehicle. This protects you against any stress cracks, water leaks, air noises, or any moulding issues that may arise. After the completion of your windshield replacement, a technician will provide you with a warranty card.

We ask that you wait 24 hours after your windshield is replaced before going through a car wash. The chemicals and water pressure may affect the installation. Regular precipitation, such as rain, will not affect the sealant or cure time. In fact, water can speed the cure process.

If your vehicle is a CT registered vehicle, as of August 1, 2010 the state of CT no longer requires that we put the registration stickers back on the vehicle. If you have other stickers on your vehicle that need to be re-applied, we will gladly put them back on for you.

We ask that under these conditions, the vehicle be placed in a garage or carport to allow the seal to hold properly.

Yes, our technicians will do their very best to vacuum every piece of glass in the vehicle. When a piece of tempered glass is broken it shatters into many pieces which means you may find a piece here and there after the cleanup process.

In most instances, if your windshield chip is smaller than the size of a quarter and has no spider legs or cracking coming out, we can repair it.

We take Visa, Mastercard, Discover, cash, and checks.

First, a certified and trained technician will inspect the damage. Next, the technician will clean the damaged area to remove any dirt or moisture that may be present. Then, using the elite Glass Medic repair system, a resin is injected into the chip. A polyester film known as Mylar is placed over the resin and a high-power ultraviolet light is placed over the chip for approximately 3-5 minutes to harden the resin.

In most cases, it is still possible to see the chip in the windshield although it may improve slightly. A windshield repair is often completed to prevent further cracking of the glass.

Because we use the highest quality Sika adhesives, your vehicle can be driven away in 1 hour after completion.

Plymouth Glass & Mirror uses top-quality replacement glass that exceeds the expectations required for the safety of your vehicle.

There are various safety features that vehicles come equipped with now such as Lane Departure Warning System, Forward Collision Alert or Brake Mitigation System, Rain Sensor, Camera, Heads Up Display and many more. Because these are a final safety feature that you rely on, we suggest having your vehicle recalibrated at the dealership that specializes in that particular model of your vehicle. Your insurance company will reimburse you for any charges related to this due to a windshield replacement.
