How long does it take to install a car windshield?

How long does the windshield installation take? My windshield installation appointment is the same day I have to pick my parents up from the airport. I don’t want to be late.

A windshield is an essential car part, so understandably, you don’t want to be without one. Thankfully, it usually only takes around two hours to install a car windshield.
During this process, two technicians will remove the old windshield and apply a sealant. From there, they’ll install the new windshield. The installation should take 30 minutes to an hour.
Once installed, it is advised to wait an additional hour before you begin driving. Waiting an hour will ensure the sealant has cured and the windshield is secure.
Since you’re taking the time to get your windshield replaced, make sure you keep it protected with the proper car insurance coverage. Carrying comprehensive coverage or full glass coverage will ensure you can always replace your windshield should it break.
