No one wants to ride around with a cracked windshield, besides looking bad the windshield keeps the car intact. Once altered, the vehicle is not as solid and may not be as reliable as when before the windshield has been altered. Many years ago, windshields were made of glass and a minor chip could turn into a disaster.
Unlike many years ago, now windshields are made up of a laminated glass that usually consisted of 2 curved sheets of glass and a plastic layer laminated in-between, then the windshield is glued to the frame. So depending on where the windshield is damaged, the price can go to very little to a bit more for other parts to be replaced. But without a doubt repairing will be a lot cheaper than replacement.
