It’s never a good idea to take your new replacement auto glass into a drive through car wash right away. However, rain will not harm your new windshield, window or sunroof. In fact, urethane sealant can actually cure faster due to the moisture.
Auto glass adhesive seals take time to form an air-tight bond. The HALCO Auto Glass team will give you a recommended drive-away time.
Driving before the recommended time can cause leaks around your new window, windshield or sunroof. Following any auto glass repair, it’s best to wait a few days before re-applying your window decals or stickers.

Fall and winter weather is right around the corner. Here are a few of the ways you can protect your auto glass. However, each of these tips can go a long way in preventing damage to your windshield during winter.

Chips and cracks should be professionally repaired immediately.
- Have your windshield professionally treated with a rain repellent
This will help your visibility stay high, no matter how heavy the rain or snow might get.
- Install newer, stronger wiper blades
This simple step may go a long way in helping you avoid low visibility during downpours.
- Use an antifrost or defogging product

Your windshield wipers worked hard to remove the snow during winter, but you will still need them to remove soft snow and rain during spring. If the blades are frayed or the washer fluid depleted, they will have to be replaced.
All-season tires work well on both dry and wet roads, but not on snow. Take the usual precautions on wet roads.
For example, keep a following distance of at least five seconds and break and turn slowly.
Remember, BC winters can be long in some areas and roads can still freeze in shady areas, so take care when driving under bridges and through mountain passes.
Water pools in the outside lanes, so stay in the middle lanes where possible. It is also easier to drive in the tracks of the vehicle in front of you than to drive through large puddles.
