Something as simple as a crack or chip in your windshield can be more than an inconvenience; it can also be a safety hazard. Your vehicle's windshield is an important safety feature in the event of an accident. It serves as an important piece of your vehicles structural integrity during a roll over, helping reduce the risk of injury. If you have a cracked or chipped windshield it's important to have it replaced.
What are the dangers of a cracked or chipped windshield?
Deciding between having your windshield repaired or replaced?
Choosing to have your vehicle's windshield replaced is a safer option than having it repaired. Some insurance companies will pay for the replacement as long as the windshield's crack or chip meets their required criteria, otherwise they may recommend having your windshield repaired.
Will filing a claim raise my insurance premium?
Your insurance premium will not increase if your claim doesn’t involve a collision. You might not want to file a claim for a windshield replacement, for example if your insurance deductible is $250 and your windshield replacement estimate is $275 your insurance company will pay for only $25.
How long does windshield replacement take?
Windshield replacement times can vary. The amount of time it takes to remove and replace your windshield is about 2.5 hours. There is also a 3 to 4 hour wait period after having your new windshield installed. Our auto glass windshield replacement services also include a complimentary car wash.
