Windshield Repair & Replacement

Do I need a windshield repair or replacement?
If your windshield is chipped, we always try to repair it instead of replacing the entire windshield. Repairs are faster, cheaper, and more environmentally conscious.

A cracked windshield is a different issue. In that case, All-Brite recommends a replacement. And we can even come to you to do the job.

Replace your windshield if:

  • There is a chip larger than a Toonie or it obscures the driver’s vision
  • A crack extends more than 1” into the critical vision area
  • Any damage obstructing the driver’s line of sight

There are additional reasons we might recommend replacing your windshield. We can offer the right advice once we’ve done an inspection.

Insurance Claims

Am I covered for windshield insurance claims?
Good news! Generally, your policy covers chips and cracks in your windshield. If your auto insurance policy includes comprehensive coverage, it should be airtight. Comprehensive insurance covers damage to your vehicle that isn’t caused by a collision and includes coverage for falling or flying objects, especially stones.
If your vehicle’s insurance policy does not include comprehensive coverage, then windshield damage may be up to your insurer. Our experience is that most insurers in Canada will honour this kind of claim in good faith, as long as it doesn’t happen often.

Windshield replacements may only cost between $160-$300 for older cars, but replacing one on a newer car could set you back as much as $3,500. Incorporating all of the technical calibrations for sensors and safety cameras can be expensive, both for replacement parts and for the labour required. In general, exotic cars come with higher repair costs.

What should I do if my windshield is chipped?
If your car’s windshield is chipped, you should get it repaired as quickly as possible. It’s typically much cheaper to fix a windshield than to replace one, even if you don’t have the coverage on your policy.

Repairing a chip is a fraction of the cost of replacing the whole windshield. Glass repair technology is surprisingly effective, and the repair facilities can often fix large or strangely shaped chips. Even small cracks can be repaired, but if it becomes bigger than a quarter, your windshield will likely get worse. This as a general guideline rather than a hard and fast rule, though!

Windshield Chip Repair

OUR WINDSHIELD REPAIR EXPERTS USE TOP-QUALITY WINDSHIELD REPAIR EQUIPMENT AND ARE TRAINED TO FIX EVERY TYPE OF CHIP.

A chip repair is far less expensive and time-consuming than a full windshield replacement. All-Brite can repair your chipped windshield in 15-20 minutes, with NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY. In most cases, the process is covered by insurance. You can drive away immediately, knowing our workmanship is guaranteed for the life of your vehicle. But on the rare occasion a repaired chip does spread, we provide a credit towards a new windshield.

ADAS Calibration

Auto Glass Technology Is Rapidly Changing.

Advanced Driver(s) Assistance Systems (ADAS) in vehicles are increasingly popular. These systems rely upon cameras, lasers, and radar, often with the camera mounting to the windshield. Any time a new windshield is installed, the camera must be calibrated to ensure proper functionality and to restore the camera to OEM specifications.
