Florida windshield replacement FAQ!

Here are a couple of questions the Glassmetics team frequently receives regarding windshield replacement in the state of Florida.

I have a dime-sized chip in my Explorer windshield, will the windshield need to be replaced?

Most Tampa Bay auto glass replacement companies will suggest the application of a resin filler to the chip but it does not guarantee that the chip will not become worse. In most cases, when a resin filler is used, the chip does not completely disappear. Auto glass specialists from Glassmetics will complete a chip repair as long as damage does not impede the driver’s line of sight. If the driver’s line of sight is obstructed, even the insurance company recommends that you replace the windshield instead of repairing it, so you are not distracted by the blemish in the windshield.

Will my auto insurance provider require me to pay the deductible to replace my damaged Explorer windshield?

If you maintain a comprehensive auto insurance policy and it was written in this state, Florida Statute 627.7288 requires that the insurance company waive your deductible for windshield replacement. It is important to note that the insurance company does not have to waive the deductible for replacement of door auto glass or rear window auto glass.
