Polzin Glass

In the glass industry, people talk about OEM.   However, many people do not know what that means.  We’ll explain it here:

Original Equipment Manufacturer. These manufacturers supply auto glass and windshields directly to auto-makers. This means that OEM replacement windshields are to fit like the original glass and rubber, with the same safety features.  OEM quality glass means that it is as close as you can get to your original glass and it is not cheap or inferior quality glass.  In fact, certain controls must be met in the manufacturing process and quality inspections met to be able to install OEM glass. In essence, you are getting the highest windshield quality available for your vehicle.

Why won’t you come to my location to install my glass?

At Polzin Glass, we have a controlled climate installation area.  Plus, it is in line with our commitment to replace your windshield under the same quality environment as it was originally installed.  With our installation area,  you do not have to worry about weather, drying or leaks.  It is all controlled and we make sure your windshield meets the standards.

When my windshield has been changed, will it be as good as before?

With a proper installation, your windshield will be back to its original quality.

Will my windshield leak?

Not if the windshield is installed properly, and if you follow some simple instructions:

  • No car wash for a minimum of 24 hours is recommended.

How soon can I drive after windshield installation?

The windshield is set in place and will not move during normal driving after one hour. However, the glue is not strong enough to secure the windshield in a roll over or head on collision.  At Polzin Glass, we not only use the OEM quality glass but also OEM glue so it dries within an hour and is safe to drive.
