Repair or Replace Your Car Glass with Glass Doctor

When driving a car, wear-and-tear damage can take the shape of a chip or crack on your windshield or other car windows. If you are in need of car glass repair, here is what you need to know:

When to Repair or Replace Your Auto Glass

If you have a chip or crack in your auto glass, the best choice is to have the problem addressed as soon as possible. It may seem easy enough to overlook, especially if it isn’t in your direct line of vision. However, a small problem can quickly turn into a big one, meaning a simple repair could turn into a costly replacement in no time.

Can You Do It Yourself?

You may be able to perform the windshield repair yourself. You can find easy-to-use self-repair kits at your local hardware store or automotive shop. However, only certain conditions warrant a self-repair. If, for example, the chip is too deep or the crack is too long, it may be time to call in auto glass repair experts like Glass Doctor®.

How to File a Windshield or Auto Glass Claim

Depending on the circumstances, you may also decide to file a windshield claim with your insurance company. Although insurance claims may vary depending on your coverage, some general tips to keep in mind include the following:

  • If you have comprehensive insurance and have paid your deductible, you can file a claim with your insurance company to cover the cost of your car glass repair.
  • An optional glass coverage may bypass the need for a deductible. However, you will need to speak with your insurance agent specifically to find out more.

If you decide filing a claim with your insurance company for your auto glass repair is worth it, here are the steps you should take:

  • File the claim quickly, before taking your car in for repair.
  • Speak with an insurance agent to confirm your repairs are covered, or understand the remaining deductible you still need to reach.
  • Bring your car in to an approved automotive shop.
