Windscreen Replacement Cost

The windscreen replacement cost varies depending on several factors, including the vehicle’s make and model, the damage’s severity, and the type of replacement needed. In the UK, windscreen replacement costs can range from £130 to £450 or more. 

This price range is primarily due to the make and model of the vehicle, with larger vehicles like vans typically costing more than smaller family cars. Additionally, the type of windscreen needed, such as one with advanced safety features or a specific type of glass, can also affect the cost. It’s important to note that windscreen replacement costs may be covered by insurance, depending on the policy and the cause of the damage. 

At Chips Ahoy Windscreens, we strive to provide our customers with a competitive price and high-quality service. You can trust us to provide an accurate quote and expert advice on your situation’s best action.

Windscreen Replacement Process

At Chips Ahoy Windscreens, all windscreen replacements follow our proven 7-step process.

Initial Inspection – One of our experts will assess the damage to your windscreen to see if it can be repaired or requires a complete replacement. The technician will make the decision if the windscreen can be repaired but will not carry out any work until he has your permission.

Removal of the Damaged Screen – If it is a total replacement, our technician will carefully remove the screen, taking absolute care not to damage the surrounding bodywork and windows.

New Vehicle Glass – After removing the old windscreen, our technicians will prepare the replacement window, ensuring it is the correct replacement with all the correct attachments and accessories.

Install – Our technicians will then carefully install the new windscreen, using a high-strength adhesive to secure the window.

Drying – Once the new screen is in place, it needs time to dry and set. The ambient temperature will determine how long this will take.

Clean up – As the adhesive is drying, our technicians will clean their work area, ensuring everything is clean and tidy.

Final Inspection – before returning the keys to your vehicle, our technicians will do one final inspection to identify any problems. If there is a problem, it will be solved there and then. Only then will we ask you for the final payment.

At Chips Ahoy Windscreens, we take great pride in diligence and attention to detail. Our technicians are experts and only use the best tools and replacement parts.

To make a booking for our mobile service, please call 0800 054 1080.

How Long Does It Take?

Windscreen Repairs – the damage’s severity and location impact the time necessary to repair. You would be looking at 30 – 60 minutes. Cracks take longer than a chip repair. Also, the curing time of the resin and the air temperature could push us over the 60 min mark. The most important thing is that the car is safe to drive.

Windscreen Replacement – Even with our experience, a windscreen replacement can take 1 – 3 hours. The make and model of your vehicle is the most significant determining factor, followed by the drying time of the resin and adhesives.

We fully understand the inconvenience caused by having a windscreen replaced or repaired. We will also strive to work as quickly as possible whilst ensuring your vehicle is safe to drive afterwards.

When it comes to wind screens, there is no job too big or too small.

UK Road Regulations

UK Law states that drivers must ensure their vehicle windows and windscreens are always safe and road worthy. A chip or a crack that obscures the driver’s line of vision will be considered a violation, often resulting in a fixed financial penalty and penalty points on the driver’s licence.

Any damage larger than 40mm within the driver’s line of vision or 10mm in front of the driver can be considered an obstruction.

Alex called 30 minutes before the scheduled appointment time to let me know that he would be on time, on arrival he was well presented and give sound advice on a minor mark on the screen. The repair was completed to a high standard with no fuss.

Fantastic service. Called them at 10am querying price and availability to re-seal a windscreen, that was no longer secure. They came out within 5 hours in the pouring rain, removed and re-sealed the screen. Fantastic guys that done the work (Alex I think) and a huge shout to Anthony who took the call and ensured someone would come out same day. I cant thank and praise these guys enough, great job A*****
