How do I know if my windshield is repairable?
Whether your windshield can be repaired rather than replaced, can be determined by you (with the guidance below) and your repair facility. If the chip can be covered by a quarter or the crack covered by a dollar bill, and if the damage is not in the driver’s primary viewing area (meaning directly in front of the driver approximately 12″ wide extending from the top to the bottom of the wiper sweep area); your windshield may be repairable.
How does my deductible work for windshield repair or replacement?
Generally, you will not have to pay your deductible for the repair of chips or cracks in your auto glass. However, there are factors unique to each situation. For example, if a repair is unsuccessful and the windshield needs to be replaced, a deductible will likely apply. You may also have a policy that includes a lower or no deductible for your glass claim. In order to view your policy and deductibles, simply log into insurance comapny. Select the link to view your policy. Your deductibles and coverages are listed on the pages directly after your insurance card.
Can the repairs be done on site at my home or workplace?
Most glass damage can be repaired at a location of your choice, including your home or work. In certain situations, depending on the type of vehicle or extent of damage, you may have to take your vehicle to the glass vendor’s facility for the repair.
