Answers to Frequently Asked Questions


1. I have a chip in my windshield. Can it be repaired or should it be replaced?

Windshield chips can often be repaired if they’re minor and not directly in the driver's line of sight. General rules of thumb are that chips can be repaired if the damage is only to the outer layer of the windshield's laminated safety glass and if the total size of the chip is less than the size of a quarter.

2. Will I need to pay any money out of pocket to get my glass fixed?
For rock chip repair, most car insurance companies waive the deductible amount (if your insurance policy has one). So if your car insurance policy includes auto glass coverage, then you generally will not have to pay anything out of pocket for chip repair.
For glass replacement, you will not have to pay anything out of pocket if your car insurance policy includes full glass coverage. In this situation, we can simply bill your car insurance provider, collect payment from them and replace your glass at no cost to you.
If your car insurance policy includes a deductible for glass replacement, then you will be responsible for the deductible amount and your car insurance provider will be responsible for any money over the deductible amount.
