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.

They worked with my insurance (National General). Desiree answered all my questions thoroughly & got me scheduled quickly. Dana & Chad worked diligently & quickly to get me taken care of in the shop. They went over after care instructions & helped me understand. They have a lifetime warranty on repairs which gave me piece of mind in the future if anything happens.

Great experience! Someone had highly recommended this business in a private group. I did a search to see recommendations as well and saw lots 5 star reviews. They had the best prices of places I called. Additionally, I had an windshield install done (1-2 months ago) by a national place my insurance company sent me to but my deductible was super pricey, so I ended up paying not using insurance for that job. They did NOT do a good job. I went back 3 times to have a piece that popped up fixed. Fourth pop up I gave up and my windshield also cracked within a couple days of that (crack just bad luck). So I checked around for new place. I was happy support a local business. The guys (Macon and Nate) at the McConnell’s doing the install we super nice. The windshield that they had ordered was scratched (not their fault) but they were able to get a new one that day. I was still able to get the new install done that day (thanks!!!). And they helped fix the popped pieces the other guys weren’t able too. Also the schedule was super nice and answered all my questions. I would def recommend this place! Thanks!!!

I had a crack in my windshield that was quickly spreading so I needed to get it replaced fast. Safelite was a week wait, but McConnell was able to get me in next day. Painless experience from the start! Desiree was very helpful getting me squared away with insurance and my tech, Mason did an excellent job replacing my windshield. Super fast and great quality!

I called to see if they could check my windshield because I got a crack that started expanding with every hour. I just replaced it not even two months ago. They ended up having someone close by to come check out my repair and were very nice and honest. I am going I wait to repair my windshield since I just replaced it but when I do I will have them do it!

Had a crack in my windshield, and took it up here for a repair. They were better priced than Safelite, and had quicker availability. I got an appointment the next day, drove to their shop, and I was in and out in 20 minutes!!They have that small business service level that you just can't get any of the giant corporate places. Very personable service, and a lifetime guarantee for the work. I hope to never have to visit them again, but if I break or crack another windshield, I will 100% be heading there.

Used the mobile service. Mason and Nate were great. They arrived in the early part of the window and completed the job in about an hour. The quote to replace the windshield was almost $75 less than other quotes. I hope to never have to need service again, but if I do, I'm calling McConnell.
