    I discovered a crack in our windshield.  It started as a rock chip and has :Sad: traveled about 10 inches.  Is this something that needs immediate replacement or do you think we can travel a few days to get to a bigger city to  get it replaced?

    We are in Ririe, ID and headed west.  Does anyone know a reliable glass repair company in maybe Boise, ID or somewhere farther west?

    We’re going to Grants Pass, OR and then south along the CA coast.

    DISCLAIMER: I dont know much about repairs like this but I have seen people putting tape on the crack to prevent it from wandering ( not sure if it works ) .. I had a crack windshield once and had glass coverage with my insurrance so I just called safelite and they arranged everything…

    I put a small piece of tape at the end of the crack as a marker.  After the next leg of our trip I’ll see if the crack is traveling.  I’ll call our insurance company when we get to Boise.  I’m sure we can find a repair service there.

    Would be interested to hear if the tape helped.

    I really just put a small piece to mark the end point of the crack.

    That way I can easily track the crack to see if it’s growing.

    Just a side note, In Florida (627.7288 Comprehensive coverage; deductible not to apply to motor vehicle glass) if you get a crack and have compressive insurance, your insurance will cover the replacement cost.

    We traveled about 150 miles today and the crack traveled about three inches.  We’ll contact our insurance company today or tomorrow and see what they say.

    We are at Three Islands Crossing State Park in Glenns Ferry, ID.  Boise is less than a 100 miles so we’ll probably try to find a glass repair company in Boise.

    I had a chipped windshield and I checked the windshield by pressing on it, and the crack kept growing. As the time goes the crack had grown more and more then i called windshield repair expert to fix it.It had cost me $650 for it’s repair, I want  to know the cost of the repair is genuine or he has charged me more for repair.

    Hard to know without knowing what the vehicle is. I imagine there is a tremendous price difference between a large Class A motorhome and a pickup truck.

    The last windshield I had replaced was 10 years ago, on a 1989 Ford van, cost $300

    The last time I had a windshield replaced, the shop asked me if I was paying for it or if insurance was.  Apparently they have 2 price lists.  I suppose they overcharge the insurance companies when they find out the customer isn’t paying for the charges.
