Is Auto Glass Replacement Coverage Worth the Cost?

As a leading provider of auto glass replacement and repair around the Cincinnati area, we're asked plenty of questions related to auto glass replacement coverage. One category of questions we regularly receive is if someone should pay for this specific coverage. While there are always exceptions, our general answer to that question is no.

More Information About Auto Glass Replacement Coverage

Some comprehensive auto insurance policies include windshield coverage as part of the standard rate. But other policies require people to carry a separate rider or pay an additional fee. In those cases, it generally doesn't make sense to pay that extra amount.

The main reason we generally don't recommend paying extra for that type of coverage is the math simply doesn't work out. If you look at the extra amount you'll be required to pay every year, it doesn't take long for that amount to exceed what you'd have to pay out of pocket.

As we mentioned, this issue can definitely vary from one provider to another, so don't hesitate to contact us directly to discuss this issue based on your specific scenario.

Don't Overlook Windshield Repair

In many cases, any damage done to a windshield can easily be repaired by an experienced professional. This a great way to save money instead of replacing the entire glass. In fact, windshield repairs are usually covered by your existing insurance.

The way our repair process works is we begin by clearing out the broken glass in your windshield. Next, we release any air that's trapped within the damaged area. This release is critical for a proper repair because it allows the resin to flow into the cracks and fully seal them. We complete this process by capping the area with a second resin, curing it and then polishing.

Regardless of which service you end up needing, one of the great things about choosing J. Royce Auto Glass is we're 100% mobile. We come to you at no extra charge, and stand behind our work with a lifetime warranty.

If you have any other questions about coverage or would like to schedule an appointment for your windshield, you can easily reach us by calling 513-437-6923.
