Would you throw away a good suit because of a small tear, or a wooden table because of a small scratch? Most likely you would repair it if at all possible. Now, the same kind of common sense approach applies to auto windshield damage. Safe repairs can be made for most small breaks or cracks, and it makes sense to do so since a new windshield may cost $300 or more.
- Repairs keep costs down since your windshield will not need to be replaced.
- By helping keep insurance costs down, you will hold down your own premiums.
- The deductible is waived for a windshield repair, so no extra cost to you.
- There may even be some direct savings available to you, depending on where you live and other conditions.
- Contact your State Farm™ agent to help facilitate the process
Types of Damage That can be Repaired
- Typically, small breaks in the non-acute area (see illustration) can be repaired.
- The acute area is right in front of the driver.
- Small breaks that likely are repairable are: bullseye, star, half moon, and combination (see illustration).
- Chances are the repairer has mobile equipment and will come to you.
- If you take your vehicle to a facility these repairs usually take 20 to 30 minutes and can be done while you wait.
