A. Sounds like your windshield is not properly bonded to your car’s pinch-weld. The industry calls these “Leakers” and they can be caused by a number of things; poor fitting glass, wrong adhesive, untreated rust in the pinch-weld or your new windshield wasn’t given enough time to set.

A. This is our most common question. Our best practice is to schedule your service. Once our technician arrives on-site, they can inspect the vehicle and determine the best course of action. If it’s repairable they’ll do it right away. If it isn’t, they will discuss your options and schedule the new glass installation for as soon as is convenient for you.
