What You Should Know About Windshield Replacements, Cincinnati, Ohio

If you own a car, maintenance is important to keep it safe to drive and make sure it performs well long term. Even seemingly small details like chips in the windshield can have surprisingly big implications. If you have a chipped or cracked windshield, here’s what you should know about a windshield replacement.

Windshield Replacement FAQ

Is a windshield replacement really that important?

While a crack or chip may seem like a minor issue, it can get worse quickly and without warning. Changes in temperature can cause the glass to flex, worsening the crack and potentially shattering the entire windshield. A small impact while driving can do the same to the weakened auto glass. If you have a crack or chip, you need windshield repairs or a replacement to keep the car safe to drive.

Do I need repairs or a replacement?

Windshield ReplacementThe answer to this question depends on the severity and placement of the damage. A small chip can often be repaired by an auto glass provider, but larger cracks often call for a replacement. Talk to a professional about what fits your situation.

Will my insurance cover the procedure?

The bad news is not all auto insurance policies cover cracked or chipped glass. The good news is that many do, especially if the damage is the result of an accident. Check with your insurance provider to see what they offer.

Who chooses my repair provider?

If you are receiving auto repairs covered by your insurance, you may worry that they will choose a mechanic or glass company you don’t like to provide the service. But you have the right to select the glass company of your choice (not your insurance company). Look around for a provider you trust to do the work well.
