Windscreen replacement and windscreen chip repair


What will it cost?

At ESR we always first try to repair your existing windscreen before replacing it with a new one, usually saving you both time and money.

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:

  • Whether we can repair your existing windscreen or whether it will need to be replaced with a new one.
  • Whether your vehicle insurance provides cover for glass damage.

At ESR we are proud of our ‘repair first’ promise where we prefer to try and repair a chipped windscreen before replacing it, usually saving you both the time and money involved with a replacement.

A chipped windscreen could develop a crack at any time - and often when you least expect it. That's why it's important to repair a windscreen chip as soon as you spot it.

If your motor insurance covers glass damage, our windscreen chip repair could be carried out free - and it won't normally affect your no claims bonus. If you need help with making your insurance claim, ESR can usually help with that too, just give us a call today and speak to one of our friendly team members.
