Repairing or Replacing Damaged Windshields
Every year, over 15 million windshields are replaced or repaired across the USA. Repair prices often vary depending on the cost, model, and year of a vehicle. However, some companies have been known to charge triple the price of their competitors. However, thanks to ABS Auto Glass, that’s not the case for windshield replacement in Lower Bucks County, PA.
Windshield Replacement Costs
The average cost of a windshield replacement is between $100-$400, add labor to this and the price can rise to around the $230 mark. Classic and luxury vehicles often need bespoke repairs and fittings, and this can see prices hike up as high as $1500 for premium or rare models.
When Should a Damaged Windshield be Repaired?
A damaged windshield should be repaired immediately. Chips and cracks in windshields are a common complaint for millions of vehicles owners annually. They are often caused by debris being scattered from the wheels of other vehicles, but can also be caused by bad weather conditions and foreign objects falling from trucks and 18-wheelers on the road. It’s illegal to operate a vehicle with a damaged windshield, as it’s a danger to the occupants of the vehicle, other drivers, and pedestrians.
How are Windshield Chips Repaired?
Windshield chips can often be repaired quickly and efficiently by a qualified technician.
First, we identify the type and size of a chip, along with the amount of debris embedded in the damaged area. Next, the technician will clean the area that is damaged, removing any debris and moisture present. Finally, the chip will be sealed with resin that is hardened under ultraviolet light, blending invisibly into the surrounding windshield glass.
