Glass Replacement- Your Questions Answered

Do you have questions about the windshield glass replacement process?

Or whether your windshield even needs to be replaced?

These commonly asked questions about auto glass replacement will help you make an informed decision while understanding the process.

Generally speaking, not every crack or chip in your windshield warrants a total auto glass replacement. Small chips, cracks, and pits on the surface of the windshield can be repaired quickly and effectively by your auto glass technician, often at no cost to you.

If the crack has spread or splintered across a wide expanse of your windshield, or if any cracks or chips fall directly into your line of vision, total windshield replacement is your best option.

Depending on your insurance coverage, the answer may vary. Full comprehensive coverage on your auto insurance policy allows you to file a claim and have the insurance company pay for your windshield replacement. If there is a deductible, it must be paid before the service begins.

However, if you have a high deductible, you may opt to pay out of pocket for the windshield replacement yourself. A typical auto glass replacement will cost around $300 on average depending on the vehicle.

Not long at all! A typical auto glass replacement takes about an hour. Most windshield replacement technicians recommend a wait time of at least an additional hour before driving. Your new windshield will be ready to roll after that!

Can I replace multiple windows at the same time?

Absolutely! Any of your car windows, including front and rear windshields, are fully replaceable. Your auto glass technician can help with a sunroof, rear cab sliders on a pickup truck, or even a T-top.

Ask your auto glass technician about replacement rates for the various auto glass types.

From Our Customers…

A big thank you to Sherrill Paint & Body. Extremely nice and knowledgeable, Kasey helped me with an estimate for work, discussed my options and what I preferred, and even had the shop pop out a dent in my bumper for free. When I get it fully repaired, its going to be here. Highly recommended.

Can’t say enough about the customer service at Sherrill! I had some minor damage after a hit-and-run and Sherrill did a great job replacing and painting the front bumper. They even replaced a tail light bulb that was unrelated to the wreck!
