Your windshield plays a crucial role in your safety while driving. It provides visibility and prevents debris from flying into the car. But what happens when you need to replace it? How much should you expect to pay for a new windshield in BC? In this blog post, we’ll break down the costs and factors to consider when replacing your windshield.
The cost of a new windshield can vary depending on several factors. The type of vehicle and the quality of the windshield are the two biggest factors that influence the price. Most cars use laminated windshields, which have a layer of plastic between two sheets of glass. Installing a new laminated windshield will cost between $190 to $400, depending on the make and model of your car. If you own a high-end vehicle or need a specialized windshield, the price can be much higher.
The size and shape of the windshield can also affect the cost. Larger windshields generally cost more, as they require more materials and labor to install. If your windshield has any special features, such as rain sensors or acoustic interlayer, the cost will also increase.
If you have comprehensive insurance on your vehicle, your insurance company may cover the cost of replacing your windshield. In BC, insurance providers are required by law to cover the cost of windshield repairs and replacements for their customers. However, you may have to pay a deductible depending on your policy. It’s always a good idea to check with your insurance company before having your windshield replaced.
Replacing your windshield can be an expensive process, but it’s essential for your safety on the road. The cost of a new windshield will depend on several factors, including the type and quality of the windshield, the size and shape of your vehicle, and labour costs. If you have comprehensive insurance on your car, you may be able to have the cost covered by your insurance company.
