What will my windscreen cost to replace or repair?

At Smith&Smith® we prefer to repair your existing windscreen before replacing it with a new one, saving you time and getting you back on the road faster.

Sometimes though, the type, size and position of the damage will mean that the whole windscreen needs to be replaced.

The price of the work carried out will therefore depend on two key factors:

  1. Whether we can repair your existing windscreen or whether we are likely to recommend that it is replaced with a new one.
  2. Whether your vehicle insurance provides cover for glass damage.
If you have full insurance with glass cover and we recommend:
Your existing windscreen be repaired This will usually be free of charge and will normally not affect your no claims bonus.
Your existing windscreen needs to be replaced This will also usually be free of charge and normally will not affect your no claims bonus.
If you have full insurance without glass cover and we recommend:
Your existing windscreen
be repaired
This will usually cost a third of
the cost of a new windscreen.
Your existing windscreen
needs to be replaced
This will depend upon the type of
windscreen that needs replacing.
