How Much Does Windshield Replacement Cost?

The average windshield replacement cost is $220. Windshield replacement cost ranged from $100 to $400 for the US in 2019.


Driving a vehicle with a broken windshield is a dangerous proposition. You will certainly not have full visibility when driving and you can even be ticketed for driving with a damaged windshield. It is by far best to immediately fix the problem to ensure your safety and that of your passengers.

When you have comprehensive insurance, the costs are fully covered minus the deductible on your car insurance plan. Conversely, if you want to pay without involving insurance factors that will affect pricing and both the repair and replacement cost.

Luxury and collectible cars can cost up to $1,500 to replace a windshield. Here are some of the factors when considering a windshield replacement:

  • Model and year of the vehicle.
  • Make of car.
  • Wipers and sensors,
  • Location and type of damage.
  • Preferred service brand.
  • Glass type being utilized.

Luxury models like Mercedes Benz and Lexus require specific windshields that will increase the cost of repairs, however, popular models, for example, Honda, their windshields are often kept in stock by repair shops and sold for prices that are very competitive.

Windshield wipers for different models and makes, as well as rain sensors and other glass sensors, may also impact the final price. Some cars have more sensors than others. Windshield replacement costs can vary, depending on the make and model of the vehicle but the procedures for installation are usually very similar.

The location and the extent of the damage may also alter the cost you will pay. Selected damage that is minor can warrant a speedy repair versus a full replacement, so make sure you clearly decide what is the correct choice for your vehicle. Generally speaking, front glass replacement is usually more expensive than replacement of the back glass that averages $200 to replace with the cost ranging from $100 to $300 for the US in 2019. However, a vehicle that sports special molding may add up to 20% of the total cost for the repair.

Another consideration is the kind of glass being utilized. Lower cost windshields, classified as aftermarket cost around $100 less and they have the advantage of taking less time to repair but the disadvantage of possibly popping out during a collision. Quality glass from the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) is by far the safest and uses the same grade of glass as when it was originally built and is by far the most recommended option.

Selecting a company with a good reputation does not have to mean higher costs to get the services of their highly skilled and trained technicians, but it does ensure you will receive a quality repair. Make sure you ask about the performance and quality of the products on offer and before committing to a fix, read through customer reviews.

Windshields are categorized as safety devices as it adds strength to the structure of your vehicle and supports the performance and inflation of passenger side airbags. Therefore, it is extremely important to ensure a top grade repair is performed when replacing your windshield. The proper installations procedures and quality of the auto glass adhesive are just as vital as the windshield quality.

If you are working to a budget an exciting option may be home adhesive kits. However, if the application is not performed correctly it can lead to wrecks, leaks or adding to the expense, further repairs. It is essential to understand there are many different brands and kinds of adhesive to choose from. The type of adhesive used determines the waiting time until it is safe to drive your vehicle once more. In a similar way, a faulty or improper installation completed by any general repair shop can cause windshield separation from the vehicle when an accident occurs, the result being your airbag becomes useless.

Choosing a company with a  great reputation and insured and certified specialist technicians should always be your primary option. Impact Auto Body experts usually can do a same day windshield replacement. To achieve the best result, as we discussed earlier, the installation should be completed with OEM glass to ensure the best results and highest standards are met.

Only trust your vehicle to businesses who extol and follow these professional standards:

  • Carries adequate levels of insurance.
  • Follows all instruction from adhesive manufacturers.
  • Provides a detailed record of completed work and a written warranty.
  • Solely use products meeting standards set by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS.)
  • Use certified and trained technicians.
