My Windshield Got Damaged By A Hail Storm, Now What?

If your windshield gets damaged by hail, here are the steps you should take:

Assess the Damage: Take a close look at your windshield to evaluate the extent of the damage. Note any cracks, chips, or shattered areas. It's important to remember that even small damage can worsen over time, so it's best to address it as soon as possible.

Document the Damage: Take photos of the damage for insurance purposes. Having visual evidence can help during the claims process if you decide to file an insurance claim.

Contact Your Insurance Company: Review your auto insurance policy to determine if it covers windshield damage caused by hail. If it does, contact your insurance company to report the damage and initiate the claims process. They will guide you through the necessary steps and provide information on any specific requirements or preferred repair facilities. At Quick-Set Auto Glass we are happy to help you with filing an insurance claim just give us a call!

Consult a Professional: Reach out to a professional auto glass repair or replacement service. If you are in Colorado, our team at Quick-Set Auto Glass would love to help you - just give us a call! We have the expertise and experience to assess the damage accurately and recommend the most appropriate course of action. In some cases, small chips or cracks can be repaired, while more extensive damage may require a full windshield replacement.

Schedule Repairs: Once you have consulted with a professional, schedule the necessary repairs or replacements. Depending on the severity of the damage and the availability of parts, the repairs may be completed within a few hours. Follow the recommendations of the auto glass service provider to ensure the windshield is restored to its proper condition.

Follow Safety Guidelines: In the interim period before repairs, if the damage is substantial, you may need to take precautions to ensure safety. Avoid driving with a severely damaged windshield as it compromises visibility and may pose a risk. If necessary, cover the damaged area with a temporary windshield cover or park your vehicle in a protected area until repairs can be made.

Remember, it's crucial to address windshield damage promptly. Even small cracks or chips can grow larger over time due to temperature fluctuations, road vibrations, or additional impacts. Prompt repairs or replacements can help maintain the structural integrity of your windshield and ensure your safety on the road.
