Repair vs Replacement

Allglass® / Autoglass® Services

Nationwide Windscreen Repair vs Windscreen Replacement


After assessing the damage done to your windscreen, Allglass® / Autoglass® will make a recommendation that best suits your situation. We strive to deliver the most competitive windscreen replacement cost, however in some cases the windscreen will need to be replaced in its entirety as opposed to a windscreen repair. Our expert team will make a decision based on the level of damage to the windscreen and if a replacement is needed, a guideline will be set out advising on a cost and time-frame, for the damaged windscreen replacement.

There are many areas of caution to be addressed before we can commence with the windscreen replacement all of which will be outlined by our expert windscreen replacement team. The interior of the vehicle will need to be covered to keep it protected during the process and once the Allglass® / Autoglass® team has done this, we will begin the process of removing the glue that holds the windscreen in place. Our windscreens use the highest quality bonding materials, which includes high modulus where appropriate.

Remember: the glass used by Allglass® / Autoglass® carries the E2 stamp and is per manufacturer’s standard.

Similar to windscreen repair, windscreen replacement has a number of variables that will influence the total windscreen replacement cost. In assessing your situation, we need to know which window has been damaged. From there we can advise on a strategy and a time-frame.

When you come to us for a windscreen repair, we consider two things. Ideally, we would prefer to repair your windscreen rather than replace it. Allglass® / Autoglass® offer a windscreen repair service using the ‘Esprit Windscreen Repair’ system, which is recognised as a world leader. What we need to assess is the location and severity of the damage. Upon doing this, we can determine whether we can repair the damaged glass or whether we need to replace the windscreen entirely. Repairing the damage is the preferred option at Allglass® / Autoglass® saving our customers time and money.

Once you have contacted Allglass® / Autoglass®, before we can begin, the size of the actual chip needs to be determined along with the location of it. The chip cannot be too close to the edge of the windscreen and if it’s positioned in the driver’s line of vision, this too is an area for concern. Once all of these elements are assessed we can proceed with the diagnosis and determine if you need a windscreen repair or a full windscreen replacement.
