“The great news about a car’s windshield repair is that the repair technician usually comes to you. The windshield can be replaced by an auto glass service in your driveway, or even in the parking lot where you work. Within an hour the vehicle is drivable, though the sealant used to hold the glass in place needs time to cure before you can go through a car wash.
If you suffer a damaged windshield, whether it’s your front or rear windshield, take some pictures of the damage with a small ruler in the image as a reference. Call your insurance company and ask what options are available to you.”

If you account for the time it takes to perform the repair or installation (typically 1 hour) plus the time for the sealant to cure, you’re looking at about roughly 2 hours of waiting. So while, windshield replacement is nothing anyone looks forward to, the inconvenience is relatively minor. Additionally, your insurance agency might offset some of the cost depending on your policy.
