Risk of Driving with a Damaged Windshield

If you are driving with a windshield that has been severely cracked, it impairs your visibility, which can lead to accidents that will cost you much more than an average windshield replacement. You can also be pulled over and given a ticket for a cracked windshield, and this risk isn't worth it as well. If you have insurance, the cost will usually be covered in full, minus your deductible. But if you are planning to pay without insurance, we can help you see what the base prices will be.

Windshield Repair Costs

On average, the overall cost of a windshield replacement will range between $100 and $400. These prices are including the cost of labor, making the overall average cost between $210 and $230. Unfortunately, if you drive a more expensive car, or a more valuable collectors' car, the cost will spike even more. We will have to take into consideration the technology of the wipers, for example, rain sensors, type of damage, location of damage, and the type of glass used. If you have damages that need immediate attention, you can give us a call, and we will give you an estimate of the overall cost of the repair.

Types of Windshield Cracks to Be Aware of

When you get a crack, it is important to know what kind, so when calling the insurance company or our dealership, you can give an accurate description. The different kinds of cracks are listed below:

  • Star Break: Shape of a starburst and weakens the structure.
  • Bull's Eye: Commonly caused by debris and looks like a small circle.
  • Half Moon: Like a Bull's eye but does not make a complete circle.
  • Combination Break: More difficult to repair and more difficult to identify as it is a combination of several different impact variations.
  • Floater Crack: Looks similar to a ripple and can spread very quickly if not fixed.
  • Stress Crack: Occurs on older windshields and usually starts at the edge of the glass and should be fixed immediately.
  • Chips: Has a smaller star break shape and should be fixed if it rapidly begins to spread.
  • Long Crack: These cracks appear as long or wavy lines that unfortunately will call for the entire class piece being removed.
 

About Our Service Center

If your windshield has been severely damaged and you can't see through it, we recommend you give our service center a call, and we will come to you and switch out your windshield on the spot. If the damage is as minor as a rock has punctured a small crack, then you can schedule an appointment easily online at a time that is convenient for you. When driving with a minor crack in your windshield, it is important to be mindful driving over bumps. If you hit a bump at a faster speed, it can cause this crack to "spider" and spread throughout the windshield, causing more severe and expensive damages.
