Do you need full auto glass coverage?

Basic liability insurance for your car often times does not cover auto glass damage. This is a commonly held belief that many of our customers are surprised to learn isn’t true. Many of our customers also think that their collision insurance will cover auto glass damage. This is a misconception held by many of our customers as well. In many cases, not even those cracks and chips are covered by collision damage.

If you are looking for full auto glass coverage, your best bet is to get comprehensive coverage. However, not every insurance company labels their insurance packages the same way. If you are unsure of the state of your auto glass insurance, you should contact your insurance company directly.

The next question is: should you get full auto glass coverage? This depends on how much you drive, the conditions that you typically drive in, and also where you live. You should consider the costs of auto glass coverage versus the cost of auto glass repair or replacement. For example, if you do a lot of driving on gravel roads, you might be at a higher risk for auto glass damage.

 

Will I be able to see the damage after a windshield repair?

One frequently asked question we receive at AllStar Windshield Centers is if you are able to see any evidence of windshield damage after the repair is complete. Our windshield repair technicians use our Clarity® Windshield Repair Resin for every job. The goal of our repair resin is not only to create strong and long-lasting repairs, but also to provide the clearest view possible. The damage after a repair is virtually impossible to find. Yes, you can technically see the damage, but only if you’re looking for it.

Our goal with windshield repairs is to create a strong seal while also giving the driver the most optimal driving clarity. Our windshield repair resin matches the refractive index of your windshield, meaning that the windshield will be completely clear after the windshield repair. While it will technically be possible to see the place of repair, the result will be virtually indistinguishable from a new windshield.
