Expert Q&A: How well does glass repair work in colder weather?

Question:

How well does glass repair work in colder weather? I live in Michigan and am interested in windshield repair.

Answer:

The optimal glass temperature range is between 70 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit and Delta Kits recommends keeping your resin temperature within 10 degrees of the glass temperature.  There are various ways of warming the glass and the resin to the desired termperature range, including the use of the vehicle's defroster or a blow dryer.  Delta Kits customers have been repairing windshields in every climate imaginable for decades, including Alaska and Canada.  Successful repairs can still be made if the glass cannot be brought up to the optimal temperature range, it just requires more time and patience.
