Would you throw away a good suit because of a small tear, or a wooden table because of a small scratch? Most likely you'd have it repaired if possible. Now, the same kind of commonsense approach applies when your auto windshield is damaged. Safe repairs can be made of most small breaks, and it makes sense to do so since a new windshield may cost $300 or more.

What Types Of Damage Can Be Repaired?

Typically, small breaks in the non-acute area can be repaired. The acute area is right in front of the driver.

What Do I Have To Do?

Your State Farm agent or claim representative will help you determine if repair is possible and let you know how to arrange to have the work done.

Will The Repair Take Much Of My Time Or Effort?

Chances are the repairer has mobile equipment and will come to you. If you take your vehicle to a convenient facility to have the work done, repairs usually take 20 to 30 minutes and can be done while you wait.

What's In It For Me?

By helping hold down insurance costs, you will be helping hold down your own premiums. (When insurance losses go up or down, State Farm adjusts premiums to reflect the changes.) There may even be some direct savings available to you, depending on where you live and other conditions. Find your local State Farm agent for details on ways you can save on your insurance costs.

State Farm is interested, on your behalf, in holding down claim costs, but at the same time your safety and satisfaction are most important. We will call for windshield repairs only when we know they will be safe and we will make every effort to assure your satisfaction.

I got one really long crack because of that (it goes from left to right ends of the windshield) and one small one.
I think insurance won't cover that because of the deductible in Comprehensive Coverage. I have deductible of 250 so if I want to replace windshield I will end up paying almost all amount myself.
