As soon as you damage your windshield, you most likely are stressing out and thinking about how much a windshield replacement going to cost. There are many different reasons which can lead to windshield damage.

Perhaps you were involved in a car accident, or your kid hit a baseball into the windshield. Or it could be something like a truck passing you caused a sone to flip up and crash into your windshield.

If you have chips or cracks as a result of windshield damage, you should replace it ASAP.

Windshield Replacement Cost

If your windshield has chips or cracks, or the glass shatters, you need to have the windshield damage replaced right away to ensure it is still safe.

Several different factors affect the windshield replacement cost, such as:

  • Luxury vehicles require specially molded windshields, which may be up to 20% more expensive
  • If there are sensors on the windshield and windshield wipers, such as rain sensors, it will be more expensive depending on the number of sensors
  • The make, model, and year of your car and how difficult it is to find an auto glass replacement
  • Tinted glass will have a higher cost for windshield replacement
  • Where is the windshield damage? Is it on the front, rear, or side window?
  • If the car glass is OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) or aftermarket.

While aftermarket glass may be cheaper, it isn’t always made from quality materials.

Depending on the extent of the damage, it may be possible for a car window repair instead of having to get a new windshield. But it’s essential to take care of any damage as soon as possible. Otherwise, it will get worse over time.

As a rough guide, a crack up to three inches long, and a chip the size of a quarter can be repaired, before it’s recommended to get a new windshield.

While a windshield replacement cost is higher than to repair it, it’s essential that your vehicle complies with all driver safety standards, and doesn’t put you or your family at risk.

It can often be a bit confusing whether it’s best to repair or replace the windshield. It ultimately depends on how severe the damage is, rather than trying to save as much money as possible. It’s only possible to fix small chips if only one layer of glass is damaged, and it hasn’t expanded to a size bigger than a credit card. Otherwise, a complete windshield replacement is needed. Also, if the vinyl between the glass is damaged, the windshield needs replacing due to safety reasons.

In many states, it’s also illegal to drive when you have windshield damage, and you can be given a ticket.

Your car windshield is considered a safety device as it is crucial for proving structural integrity and strength to the body of your vehicle. It also supports the inflation and performance of airbags. Car glass is critical. So, it’s essential to make sure you have the highest quality auto glass installers who you can trust for the auto window replacement. The correct installation of the new windshield is just as necessary as using quality materials.

As a rough estimate, the windshield replacement cost can range from anywhere between $100-400, which includes labor. But for luxury and collectible vehicles, it can be as high as $1500 depending on the car.

The average cost for windshield replacement is around $250-$300, while a rock chip car window repair has an average cost of approximately $99.

These prices are only an estimate, and it may be either higher or lower depending on the windshield damage, as well as any other factors that determine the price.

Depending on your insurance policy, you may be able to have your insurance fully cover your car windshield repair. If only a repair is required for your windshield, it is often fully covered by insurance, but if you need a cheap windshield replacement, you may need to pay some additional costs like a deductible.

It’s recommended to first check if the auto glass shop is insurance-ready and approved, and also if your insurance policy will cover a windshield repair or replacement.

Your services as far as following up was fantastic, however I was not able to verify the the company that was providing the service because they did not have any website, long enough history, and I do not go by Facebook or BBB ratings, because I have been burnt by both specially the BBB ratings on companies before. The people at the company were very polite and professional; just no way to verify them. I was not able to use their services. Thanks, for the follow up. 2010 Honda Pilot | 4 Door Utility
