Gotten into an accident? Recently had your car’s windows break? If so, you already know that you will need to find a specialist who can offer auto glass repair.

Going to a cheap glass repair shop will likely mean that you will have to wait a longer time to fix that windshield, and that can mean having to rent a car for a longer time just so that you can get to and from work.

Windshield Replacement – When Is It Necessary | CPR Auto Glass Temecula

Windshield Replacement

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Depending on the size of the crack in your vehicle windshield, you may be able to have it repaired instead of having to get a windshield replacement. Small cracks or nicks that are in the middle of the windshield can usually be repaired. You should not wait too long to have the crack or nick repaired, otherwise you will likely need a windshield replacement. Over time, small cracks can spread, expanding to a length where they can no longer be repaired. A spreading crack also puts the driver and passengers at risk. As the crack spreads, the entire integrity of the windshield degrades, and where the windshield would have, in a repaired state, prevented a flying object from breaking through the windshield, a long crack will have weakened the windshield to the point where a flying rock will shatter the windshield and send the rock, and flying glass, at the vehicle’s driver and passengers. Worst yet, a weakened windshield will resist impact less when something, or someone, inside the car hits it. A minor injury could become a major injury or worse.

Getting Windshield Replacement Done Right

While more than a quarter of the time a windshield replacement is unnecessary and a repair is sufficient, when you do need to get a windshield replaced there are a number of factors to keep in mind. First, if you decide to do it yourself realize that breakage during installation is a common occurrence. Even if you go to the local wreck yard and get a windshield, there’s no guarantee it’s going to get home and into your vehicle in one piece. Given the time a DIY job takes, and the risk, consider using a professional, and certified, windshield replacement specialist.

ARG certified windshield replacement specialists will know exactly the windshield needed for your vehicle, and proper installation will be guaranteed. Most windshield replacement companies offer same day appointments too. And they will be able to tell if your windshield can be repaired or will need to be to be replaced. It’s important to protect yourself, your family and your vehicle and get the right job done the right way. A poorly done repair or windshield replacement can put you and your family in more risk than if the windshield had been left alone. Make sure the person doing your windshield replacement is ARG certified. Your windshield provides important protection.

How Much Is Your Comprehensive Insurance Deductible?

The comprehensive side of auto insurance has a deductible, the deductible is the amount you have to pay before the insurance kicks in. Some people will raise the a

mount of their deductible to lower their monthly premiums.

So lets say that you have your deductible set at $1,000, the damage of your vehic

le needs to be more than $1,000 to make a claim. If your the person that drives a lot and you go through a windshield replacement at lea

st once a year, than you might want to look into getting a lower deductible.

Or you could add a glass coverage to your policy so n

ext time you need a windshield replacement and it’s going to cost you $200, all you have to pay is $50 or $100 if you go through insurance.

But everyone should look at the premium difference, Of course if your paying $25 more a month than your buying a windshield replacement after every 8 months.

Take a look at your policy. Make sure you’re looking at the comprehensive deductible rather than the collision deductible they’re two different things. with a deductible of $50. or $100 dollars.

Windshield Replacement Claims
Most people hesitate to make an insurance claim for auto glass replacement, as they’re afraid their rates will go up. A cracked windshield, however, is usually not your fault. It’s what the insurance companies call a “no-fault” claim, and as such won’t raise your premiums. It does depend on how your car window was damaged and which insurance company and kind of policy you have.
