Three reasons to promptly schedule a windshield replacement!

windshield replacementChipped or cracked windshield? Three reasons to promptly schedule a windshield replacement!

Driving daily takes a toll on your automobile. It might feel like you can drive safely with a small crack or chip in your windshield. However, Windshields Florida Style has three reasons why it is a solid idea to get a new windshield installed upon discovering damage:

A chip can turn into a crack.

The small windshield chip caused by a piece of gravel does not look all that significant, but we all know that looks can be deceiving! Minor fluctuations in daily temperature or undue stress placed upon the windshield frame can transform a chip into a large crack at any time.

A windshield crack will impede your vision.

A crack that runs directly through your line of sight might not be immediately visible during any daytime driving but, at night, a small crack can fragment the light produced from oncoming traffic. It is also possible for a windshield crack to obscure smaller obstacles in the road, leading to a potential collision.

Your windshield is a structural element.

A high-strength windshield will definitely allow you to see oncoming traffic and obstacles on the road, but it also acts as an integral component in your vehicle’s strength by supporting the roof. A chip/crack in the windshield will have a negative impact on the integrity of the vehicle structure because it decreases the twisting rigidity and make your truck or car more unsafe in a rollover.

To keep your vehicle safe, and avoid potential fines, consult a specialist from Windshields Florida Style to schedule an appointment for a windshield replacement. We are prepared to make your appointment, all you need to do is call us today at 813-358-3476. If you would rather schedule the appointment online, click here!

Will they pay for my new windshield?

automobile windshieldWill my automobile insurance company pay to replace my damaged windshield?

What will my automobile insurance company pay for if I only maintain liability coverage?

Windshield and auto glass replacement services are not covered under most Florida liability insurance policies. A liability insurance policy will only provide coverage for damages that done to another vehicle.

How much will windshield replacement cost?

cracked focus windshieldIs a broken windshield covered by my automobile insurance policy?

A crack in your windshield can feel like a minor issue compared to totaling your Kia in a car accident, but it will likely warrant filing an insurance claim. A larger crack or a totally shattered windshield should be looked at by an auto glass specialist before you can safely, and possibly legally, get behind the wheel.

The positive news is that if you have a comprehensive auto insurance policy, it should cover a replacement windshield!

Almost all shattered windshield glass will fall under the comprehensive physical damage portion of a full coverage car insurance policy. In all of Florida, your insurance policy will not require you to pay a $250 to $1,000 deductible for replacement, unless the damage was incurred in a collision. It is important to understand that a liability insurance policy will not cover the expense of a windshield replacement.

Auto glass replacement and insurance premiums

rv autoglassWill my insurance policy cover my RV or automobile windshield replacement?

Auto glass is found under the comprehensive section of a vehicle policy. If you are driving with a comprehensive insurance policy, your windshield replacement should be covered unless a collision caused the damage. It is important to note that in Florida, you will not subject to paying a deductible for an RV or automobile windshield replacement.

Will filing a claim for an RV windshield replacement affect my insurance premium?

In Florida, an insurance claim for a replacement windshield will not have a negative impact on your insurance policy premium. To verify there will be no increase in your insurance premium, check with your insurance company directly or request that the team from Windshields Florida Style contact your provider.

Will windshield replacement be covered if I only have liability coverage on my vehicle?

A liability insurance policy only covers damages to other individuals and vehicles, meaning a windshield repair or any other type of auto glass service will not be covered under this type of policy.

Types of auto glass replacement shops to avoid!

windshield replacementThe best windshield replacement services will ONLY be in the business of auto glass repair or replacement, and possess a particular set of skills and experience in these repairs.

There are dishonest companies in cities like Jacksonville offering low price windshield replacement. To sidestep problems, keep this helpful list of tips for choosing a windshield repair shop close.

 

  • Research how long the mobile windshield replacement company has been in operation.
  • Verify that all auto glass installers employed by the repair shop are qualified and certified.
  • Do not purchase replacement automobile glass directly from a car dealer. The car lot on-site repair shop will charge a lot more than the current market rate for OEM replacement auto glass.
  • Avoid windshield replacement companies that do not offer OEM parts. All OEM replacement parts are produced by the manufacturer of the original automobile parts. Ask what type of auto glass the windshield replacement service intends to use.
  • Be wary of repair companies offering additional FREE services. You only need a windshield replacement, and there will always be an additional fee for any additional service at these shops!

This information will help you avoid windshield repair shops that will do a substandard job or charge your insurance provider too much money for an easy repair!

Heat and windshield damage

broken windshieldAll of us can agree, the last several days have been hot! The bad part is, if it is anything like a typical Florida summer, it does not look like relief will be arriving until at least October. As you head to your car or truck for lunch break, you are getting ready for a nasty blast of heat. It gets extremely hot in any vehicle, so we get a lot of people posing the question, can summer weather hurt my windshield? Can the heat make my windshield crack?

The answer is, “yeah,” it can crack a windshield, but it does not happen often. Heat damage is more likely to occur in older cars than newer models, and there needs to be a pre-existing condition. For hot weather to play a role in the destruction of your windshield, there needs to be a stone chip you chose to ignore. A windshield without a chip or crack will not shatter due to exposure to direct sunlight.

When you have a small crack, you choose to ignore due to inconvenience associated with replacement, even though we offer a free mobile service, it can spread due to temperature variations when you crank the AC. Hot temperatures mixed with good AC and a chipped or cracked windshield can result in an outright shattered windshield that will still require our assistance as soon as possible!

Do not worry, this chip or crack will not be a lasting problem for you or your budget! The team from Windshields Florida Style will help minimize costs and concerns for Florida automobile drivers with a heat damaged windshield by:

  • Explaining that deductibles do not apply.
  • Explaining that your premiums will NOT rise for auto glass replacement.
  • Working directly with your Florida insurance provider to handle the windshield replacement.
  • Bringing you a check and a restaurant.com gift card at the time of replacement, with qualifying insurance.

The team from Windshields Florida Style offers anyone with a chipped or cracked windshield a convenient free mobile auto glass replacement option in Tampa Bay, Orlando or Jacksonville.
