Windshield damage is unavoidable, especially to those of us living in Alberta. Whether it be rocks flying on the highways, or debris hitting the glass, at some point, a crack or chip is bound to happen. As we have discussed in previous blog posts, a cracked windshield means a hefty fine in Alberta, which is why we encourage annual inspections for damage and replacements if need be. The question remains, whether or not insurance companies will cover the cost of the damage to a windshield, lets get into that.
Essentially, when it comes to windshield damage, it depends on what type of coverage you have and who your insurance provider is. Some insurance companies include glass damage in their comprehensive coverage policies. In this case, you may be eligible to have the windshield damage repaired at one of their preferred vendors. Otherwise, damage coverage may be an additional charge to be added to your existing insurance policy.
When going through insurance, consider choosing Boulevard Auto Glass as your vendor. We can have your vehicle fixed up in no time and then your insurance provider can reimburse you the amount.
