Frequently Asked Questions
Is it better to replace or repair a cracked windshield?
The moment you notice a crack in your windshield, you have to decide what to do about it. Simply ignoring it will only result in a bigger problem in the near future.
Replacing the windshield is usually a better solution than a repair simply because you get a brand-new pane of glass with no damage on it.
However, there are specific times when a replacement is a must over a repair.
First, if the glass is tempered, the glass will break into small, granular places if it is broken. This is the type of glass that is found on side and rear windows.
Second, if there’s a really large crack (such as longer than a dollar bill), replacement is the best option for you.
Similarly, if the crack is too deep, such as if it penetrates multiple layers of glass, replacing is best so that you don’t encounter other problems.
If the crack is in a bad spot, you don’t want to have a problem with visibility. Even with a repair, you’ll still see the crack – and the structural integrity of the glass is still impacted. So, if the crack is in front of the driver, it’s best to schedule a full replacement.
Additionally, if you have multiple chips and cracks, it’s better to replace the glass. The simple reason is that glass can only take so much damage before it is incapable of offering sufficient protection.
Is it worth it to use insurance for a cracked windshield?
In many instances, it is best to use insurance for a cracked windshield – assuming you’re going to get a full replacement instead of a quick repair. Of course, it also depends heavily on what your car insurance deductible is.
Find out what the cost of the glass damage will cost you. If it’s higher than your deductible, Safe Auto Glass will help you file a claim with your auto insurance company. Most insurance companies anticipate such a claim once a year, so it likely won’t affect your premiums unless you’re filing more than one claim a year.
What to do if a stone hits your windshield?
We’ve all experienced that situation when a stone hits the windshield when driving down the road. If this happens to you, there are a few steps to take.
Pull over so that you can inspect for damage. If the damage is excessive and it limits your visibility, call for help. It may even be necessary to have your vehicle towed if it’s unsafe to drive.
Cover the area so that it stays clean and dry. This can be done with clear tape. Extreme temperatures could cause further damage.
Then, decide if it’s best to move forward with an auto glass replacement service.
