Should I Place a Claim to Replace a Windshield?

If you have comprehensive insurance, it may cover the cost of windshield replacement. However, if the damage is minimal and can be repaired, it may be more cost-effective to pay for the repair out of pocket. Our experienced technicians can assess the damage and provide you with an accurate recommendation based on your specific situation. And with our No-Worry Claims, you won’t have to worry about the hassle of dealing with insurance, we will handle it all for you.

Does Car Insurance Cover Windshield Replacement?

The answer to this question depends on your specific insurance policy. In general, most comprehensive auto insurance policies cover windshield replacement. This means that if the damage is caused by something other than a collision, such as a rock or debris hitting your windshield, your insurance should cover the cost of replacement.

Can I Fix Window Damage Myself?

While there are DIY kits available for repairing minor windshield damage, it's not recommended to try and fix window damage yourself. Windshields and windows are critical safety features of your vehicle and any repairs should be done by a professional. Attempting to repair damage yourself can result in further damage and compromise the safety of your vehicle. At Complete Auto Glass, our team of experts has the skills and experience to properly repair or replace your windshield and windows.

How Do I Know if I Need Window Replacement or Repair?

If your windshield or windows are damaged, it's important to have them inspected by a professional as soon as possible. In some cases, minor chips or cracks can be repaired, but if the damage is extensive, replacement may be necessary. Our team will thoroughly assess the damage and provide you with the best solution for your specific situation.

What Should I Do After Window Replacement?

After your window has been replaced, it is essential to follow some post-replacement care instructions. We recommend keeping all windows closed for at least 24 hours to allow the adhesive to cure properly. Do not remove any tape or stickers placed by our technicians, as they help secure the window in place. Avoid using any car washes or power washers for the first 48 hours after replacement. And finally, don’t slam your doors or drive on rough roads for the first few days to prevent any potential damage.

What Is ADAS Calibration?

ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) Calibration is a process that ensures the proper functioning of the safety features in your vehicle. These features, such as lane departure warning and automatic emergency braking, rely on cameras and sensors that are often located in or around the windshield. When the windshield is replaced, these systems may need to be recalibrated to ensure they are working correctly. At Complete Auto Glass, we have the necessary equipment and expertise to perform ADAS calibration for your vehicle.
