Hurricane-force winds increase the chances of windshield damage

The cost to replace windshield damage depends on your insurance

This is the time of year when Florida residents keep an eye on weather forecasts a little more closely. Hurricanes, tropical storms and other significant weather events leave many vehicle owners wondering about the cost to replace windshield damage should it occur.

The official hurricane season began June 1 and continues through November 30, with August and September the peak activity months. This corresponds to the highest months of calls we receive at Same Day Windshields regarding the cost to replace windshields.

Hurricane landfalls are more likely to cause damage because of the exceedingly high winds that send branches and other debris flying. The cost to replace windshield damage from any cause depends on your vehicle and whether you carry full coverage insurance in Florida. It can be as low as zero out of pocket for vehicle owners who carry full coverage insurance in Florida, thanks to Florida statutes that cover cracked windshields and windshield replacement.

Southeast Florida, especially the Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach areas are prone to the types of torrential rains that we saw earlier this summer. Storms that come in off the Gulf of Mexico put locations in Southwest Florida at higher risk, particularly in the Fort Myers-Naples area in recent years.

Further up the Gulf Coast, West Florida and the Tampa-St. Petersburg area, the Florida Panhandle, as well as locations as varied as the Florida Keys to the Central Florida Atlantic Coast also see their share of damage during hurricane season.

Our Same Day Windshields customer service team works with insurance companies to confirm your coverage or quote a cash cost to replace windshield damage when appropriate. Have your vehicle information, location and insurance information ready when you call, and we will schedule a visit from one of our auto glass specialists as quickly as possible, usually faster than the national chains.
