Broken, chipped or cracked windshields are some of the most common vehicle repairs. Flying rocks, hail and debris can damage the windshield, making it unsafe to drive. Before going for a windshield repair, check whether it is part of your comprehensive car insurance coverage.
If something other than a collision damages your windshield, it is likely that you can pay for the repair using the comprehensive portion of your insurance. But not having comprehensive coverage means you will have to pay out-of-pocket.
Another important factor is the deductible. If the deductible is higher than the cost of repairs, it is not worth filing a claim.
In some cases, filing an insurance claim for windshield damage (that does not involve a collision) can inflate your premium. Find out in advance, from your insurance company, if this is the case.
If you find that filing a claim is worth it, do it as soon as possible. You can do it in person, by phone or online. Find out with your auto glass repair professionals whether they have a contract with your insurance company.
