How much does a windshield replacement cost?

At the very end of my US road trip, I drove through this enormous hail storm. Some of the ice even cracked my windshield! Now, I need to get it replaced by I’m nervous about the cost. What is the typical cost of a windshield replacement?

Answer
I’m sorry to hear about your car, but I’m glad you’re safe! It generally costs between $200 to $400 to replace a broken windshield. That being said, the cost largely depends on the type of car you have and the type of glass you’d like.
If a windshield replacement seems outside your budget, you should consider filing a comprehensive coverage claim with your provider. Comprehensive policies will typically cover incidents outside your control, like acts of god or vandalism. If you have a comprehensive policy, then you’ll likely be covered for hail storm-related damage!
Remember, your insurance rate may increase after you file a claim. To make sure you’re still getting the best rate on the insurance you want, try Jerry.
