i dont now how hard it is to do, but i now that the windshield is glued to the car. and the glue is a specialglue. and the drying time for the glue is 6-12 hours. to take out the windshield you must have a person whit you and have a pianostring.

I do auto glass for a living and if you could only appreciate what it means to put a windshield in CORRECT!!
Your windshield is a structural part of your vehicle and not installing it correctly can have not only nuisance issues like leaking, in the event of an accident, your windshield can make the difference between walking away or being a vegetable. Happens several times a year.
Leave it to the pro auto glass guys. It is no different than you wanting people to leave your profession in your hands, not someone guessing at it then wanting you to fix their mess ups.

Did a great job in 20-25 minutes.

Can I purchase the glass myself and then just take it to him and have him install it or do I have to buy the glass from him also? I'm not sure if you are talking about that guy working in that place or if they are even associated at all.

Make sure you tell the auto glass place you are paying, not the insurance company. Shop around via the phone, you should be able to get a decent price.

Some insurance companies will also pay for repairs rather than having a claim to pay for a new windshield. You might want to chack that possibility out.
Just an example below.
