The average cost of windshield chip replacement is $250. The cost of windshield replacement ranged from $100 to $400 for the US in 2022.
If you carry an insurance policy with comprehensive coverage, the costs will be covered in full, minus your deductible.
If you own a luxury vehicle or a collectible car the price may escalate up to $1,5000 depending on the make and model of the automobile. Regardless of the age and desirability of your car, there are other factors that play a part when you investigate the cost for the replacement of a windshield.
- Wipes and sensors.
- The kind of damage and its location.
- Preferred service brand.
- The type of glass being utilized for the replacement.
- The make, year and model of your vehicle.
The type of vehicle you own can have a direct effect on the price you will pay. For example, Mercedes-Benz and Lexus require specific windshields and this will increase the cost of repair. However, windshield replacement services will often keep windshields on hand for popular manufacturers and models, hence lowering the costs. For example, rain (or additional) sensors on the glass may add to the cost of replacement as will adding wiper assembly costs, (usually around $10 to $20.) Also, consider that different vehicles require larger amounts of glass to replace the windshield, this may also add to the cost. A vehicle with special molding may add up to 20% or so to the cost while back glass replacement not requiring additional wiper assembly averages $200 with prices ranging from $100 to $300.
Additionally, you have a choice regarding the kind of glass to be utilized. Aftermarket windshields are usually $100 or so less expensive but utilizing a lesser grade glass may make your windshield pop out in the event of a collision. A good rule is to use the same quality of glass for the replacement as was installed in the vehicle when it was originally assembled.
When you choose a reputable company it does not automatically mean you will pay higher costs but it does mean you will get a quality repair or replacement from highly-qualified technicians. Make sure you inquire into the performance and quality of the products on offer and read customer reviews, too!
Make Sure You Get A Quality Repair
Remember your windshield is a “safety device” because it adds to the structural strength of your vehicle body and plays a large role in the support of the performance and the inflation of your passenger side airbags. Correct installation is as important as the windshield quality.
You should only trust your vehicle to businesses who follow these professional standards:
- Carried adequate insurance.
- Follow all manufacturer’s instructions regarding adhesive.
- Provide a detailed record and a written warranty for the work completed.
- Use only products that meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS).
- Uses certified and trained technicians.
