Windshield replacement cost and when it’s time to replace your front windshield.
Your front windshield is important for keeping you safe and your field of vision clear. It also acts as a major safety device during the event of a rollover accident. Keeping your vehicle safe is a top priority when researching the windshield replacement costs. Remember that there are different levels of windshields to choose from and not all autoglass meets the manufacturer recommended safety specifications when you are researching car window replacement cost. The following will help in your search for the best windshield replacement cost.
The different types of glass include OEM or original equipment manufacturer, factory recommended replacement glass and aftermarket glass. OEM is the glass that is installed at the plant where your vehicle is built and is installed under perfect environmental conditions. Factory recommended replacement glass has the same specifications as OEM and is the next best choice to OEM when trying to save money on a windshield replacement cost. This is because it is up to factory standards but is not installed in perfect environmental conditions. Aftermarket is glass that generally doesn’t meet the recommended specifications. In my opinion it is not the safest glass to purchase and install on your vehicle. Insurance companies usually will not pay to have aftermarket glass installed on a vehicle.
If you have damage in the form of stars, cracks or chips on your windshield and need to know if the damage warrants a complete replacement of your front windshield, many auto glass companies and insurance companies tend to have different opinions. From my experience, many auto glass companies will suggest that a crack in the front windshield be repaired as long as the length of the crack is less than the size of a dollar bill whereas most insurance companies generally recommend a complete front windshield replacement if there is any type of damage to the front windshield. Contacting your nearest auto glass company or automobile insurance agent can help you with your decisions when faced with such a dilemma.
Here is a list of quality questions that are generally considered by auto glass companies when deciding on whether or not to replace your windshield when there’s damage are as follows.
- Does the crack appear in the direct line of site for the driver?
- Does the crack run to the outside edge of the glass?
- Is the damage to the front windshield larger than the size of a dollar bill in length?
- Is the damage missing any surface glass?
- Is the damage larger in diameter than a quarter?
Most auto glass companies will tell you that you need a complete replacement for any question above that you answer with a yes.
Auto Glass Locator's recommendation would be to have your front windshield replaced if there is any type of noticeable damage so that the safety of your vehicle is restored to it’s recommended manufacturer safety specifications.
