Windshield Replacement Costs
No one wants to have safety issues from a faulty windshield. If your damage is larger than a quarter, you need to have your windshield replaced or repaired by an expert as soon as possible.
Get the Scoop on Windshield Replacement Costs
Windshield replacement costs cover a wide range based on the vehicle type, the kind of glass used, and the window that is damaged. You are looking at a range of a few bucks to hundreds of dollars to handle the damage to a front or back windshield depending on the make and model of your vehicle.
There may also be additional costs for your type of vehicle. Add $20 if you have special moldings. Attached windshield wipers will raise your cost $10 to $20.
Let Your Insurance Company Pay for It.
If you have comprehensive coverage, this cost is usually covered by your insurance company. Most auto glass places will work with your insurance company to get payment directly from them. You may have a deductible on your policy. You would need to pay that amount.
If a repair can be made instead of a replacement, often the insurance company will pay the whole amount of it because it saves them money over a replacement. Repairs are safe, quick, and less costly.
Find Out if a Windshield Replacement Is Necessary
If you have only chips and scratches, a repair can usually take care of the damage. A windshield replacement isn’t necessary. These repairs are highly successful, preserve the structural integrity of the vehicle and can save you lots of money. A windshield replacement may not be necessary if:
Save Money with a Repair Instead of a Replacement
Repairs to cracks and chips run between $20 and $60. Expect mobile service to run in the neighborhood of $55. You will pay for each chip or crack that is repaired. If you have a $20 chip and 4 $30 cracks to repair, your bill will be $150.
Larger cracks cost more. While cracks up to a foot in length are $50-$60, those that are a foot or two long will cost $60 to $70 to repair.
