In some cases, a chip or crack might be small and stable enough to where we can safely perform an auto glass repair instead of a full replacement. Auto glass repairs are performed in order to prevent a chip or crack from spreading. Not always, but sometimes the repair can also fix the cosmetic appearance of the flaw, although the most important purpose of an auto glass repair is preventing the damage from spreading. So how much does an auto glass repair cost? Prices typically start at around $55, and the price goes up depending on the size of the damage. The great thing about auto glass repairs is that they tend to be much quicker (and cheaper) than replacements! However, when it comes to choosing between a repair and replacement, safety is our number one priority, and we would never recommend a repair if we thought it would be dangerous or if we determined you would still need a replacement later down the line.
How Much Does an Auto Glass Replacement Cost?
What if the damage isn’t contained to the size of a small chip or crack? In these cases, an auto glass replacement is required. This means that we will fully remove the existing auto glass, and reinstall brand new glass. Unlike auto glass repairs, replacements will fix the cosmetic damage 100% of the time. Additionally, a replacement will have much more longevity. Though our auto glass repairs can last you for years or longer, there will come a point when it’s time to fully replace the glass. You might be selling the vehicle, or maybe you’re sick of seeing the damage! Replacements generally start at around $175 for the most basic sedan. Prices will go up from there, especially if your vehicle has safety sensors or if you drive a larger vehicle like a truck. Regardless, a replacement is the only 100% effective method at getting rid of the damage for good, and never having to look at it or worry about it again!
