Windshield replacement should be done as soon as possible after a damaging event.

It can be frustrating to find yourself with a damaged windshield on your vehicle, but the good news is that your windshield protected you from an object hitting you instead. Here at McConnell Auto Glass, we recommend windshield replacement more often than not and ensure that it is done as promptly as possible.

Windshield Replacement in Raleigh, North Carolina

A small rock chip or crack can usually be repaired, but we recommend that chips are best filled when the point of impact is recent, small, and has had no dirt, debris or water compromise the chip after the fact. For this reason, it is best not to drive the car and call us for our mobile auto glass repair services instead.

All of our technicians are insured, licensed, and certified through Auto Glass Academy, an Auto Glass Safety Council accredited training course, so you can be confident that your windshield replacement will be done correctly. We back that with a lifetime warranty on our services and materials. Your safety is our most important priority, and that’s why we only use the highest quality materials and equipment.

They're just great.

 
Testimonial

“I've had two windshields replaced by the McConnell Auto Glass team this year. Both times they were quick to respond with a quote, had a great price, and scheduled me within a business day or two. They're just great. Hopefully no more new glass for me, but I'm not calling anyone else if I do.”

Why it is Important to Get Windshield Replacement Done Promptly

At McConnell Auto Glass, we don’t believe in creating panic for our customers in the Raleigh, North Carolina area who have a damaged windshield. We do, however, recommend taking care of windshield replacement in a prompt manner. A common misconception is that you cannot drive your vehicle with a damaged windshield or it could shatter or cave in on you from the wind velocity. That is completely untrue as today’s windshields are designed to stay intact.

What you do need to be concerned about, however, is that although it won’t cave in on you, it is in a weakened state. That means that should you have a rollover vehicle accident, it won’t provide as much structural support as it might have otherwise. How much structural support your windshield provides depends on the make and model of the vehicle. Of course, the chance of this type of accident is slim, but to be on the safe side, it is better to handle windshield replacement as soon as you can.

On a more plausible side of the equation, a good reason to take care of windshield replacement is visibility. If the damage to your windshield is impairing your view either directly or by making sunlight more glaring through refraction, it is better to get the windshield replacement done as soon as possible. If it is exceptionally challenging to see, you should consider our mobile windshield replacement service rather than trying to drive the vehicle. If your windshield is only slightly damaged, it may be able to be repaired instead, and we will advise you accordingly.

FAQs About Windshield Replacement

It is normal to have questions when you realize your vehicle needs windshield replacement. At McConnell Auto Glass, we always welcome questions from our Raleigh, North Carolina customers because we want you to be fully informed about the process, expected results, and other aspects of windshield replacement. Here are a few common questions to get you started:

What laws are there in North Carolina about cracked windshields?

North Carolina laws prohibit driving a vehicle if the driver’s view is impaired or obstructed. Federal law goes a bit further in that cracks less than 3/4-inch are acceptable provided they are at least 3 inches from another crack and not within the critical vision area. Another law that can give you peace of mind is that we must replace your windshield with the same quality as the original. A common misconception is that NC law requires insurance companies to waive the deductible for windshields. That is not the case. Actually, NC law makes it illegal for us to waive the deductible.

What factors influence the cost for windshield replacement?

Pricing depends on the make and model of your vehicle, as well as the year. What you’ll pay depends on your insurance coverage. While we are a preferred vendor for insurance companies, we will also handle your windshield replacement if you do not have coverage and need to pay for it yourself.

Will my insurance claim for windshield replacement increase my premium?

By state law, insurance companies cannot raise your premium for making claims, but if you make excessive claims, they can raise your deductible. This varies from state to state and by a pre-determined underwriting policy that is based off age, length of driving history, and record.

Excellent service! From my initial email, Desiree, was awesome to work with. The installation quality was very well, and I appreciated that they took the time to reinstall my stickers and dash cam I had on my windshield, that extra level of detail meant a lot. I choose to wait while they replace since I needed the ADAS recalibrated. Their waiting area was very nice and the shop dog was an adorable puppy! While I hope to not need them again, I will definitely choose them again.

We highly recommend this company, excellent customer service from start to finish. Dana arrived right on time, but so did the rain..he waited patiently for it to stop, took a chance that it would stay that way (it did!) and installed the windshield quickly and professionally. We appreciated that extra bit of care very much!

The quote I received from McConnell was about 50% less than other places. Also, they offer free chip repairs for a year. Dana came to my house and replaced my windshield. He was courteous, quick and efficient. I would recommend them.

Did the job quickly (next day), reused the trim pieces and saved me good money, and had good customer service- something a lot of business lack in the last few years. Will bring back if I need work done.

Top shelf! Needed windshield replaced, and they did it next day in my driveway. Dana (the installer) was a master! There was no wasted motion in anything he did. Pure confidence in every task he performed. He was very thorough with giving after install instructions to be sure I didn't mess anything up.I would highly recommend McConnell in a heartbeat! If you can get Dana as your installer, all the better!

Fast quick service for an insurance claim on cracked windshield. Called Friday, used the USAA insurance app to direct the repair to McConnell's, and within 15 minutes had the appointment scheduled for Monday. Monday rolls around and in by 10, out by 11:30. Would use again.

Needed windshield replacement for my BMW from rock damage. After reading several reviews, McConnell seemed to be the place to go. I have to whole heartedly agree with all the positive reviews. From beginning to end it was a smooth seamless process. The work was completed in a timely fashion and work is well done. Car was clean afterwards.Will recommend without hesitation.

I’m very particular about what shops I take my car to but when I called McConnell Auto Glass I was put to ease once Desiree answered the phone. She took the time to explain to me the process of repairing my windshield and telling me the couple options I had. I proceeded to look into those options and everything she told me was 100% true. I scheduled an appointment and got my glass replaced. The process was seamless; the employees were very thorough, had great communication, and did awesome work. Don’t hesitate bringing your vehicle here.

Working with McConnell Auto Glass was smooth and easy. From emailing to receive a quote, calling to schedule an appointment and the actually appointment itself. Every step was effortless, their prices were great and the quote matched the final price. Dana, who provided the service, did an excellent job while also providing information on the replacement and what to look for or do if a chip or crack occurs again. Will definitely use them again and recommend to any and all who ask.
