I have full coverage in my All State car insurance. When i had stone chips on windshield, I never had to pay a deductible replaced new windshield
Windshield is normally a separate item that doesn’t require a deductible. If you have a deductible, it will most likely apply for the condenser. In my case, with a $1k deductible, it wouldn’t make sense to get insurance involved.

Windshield damage is covered under comprehensive coverage as well as a multitude of non-collision damages. Some of these under comp coverage are glass breakage, falling/flying objects, theft, vandalism, water damage if is found to be a sudden cause (water leaks found to have been going on over a period of time is not a sudden loss), damages caused by animals, hail, ice, etc. I know, having worked, as an adjuster for Allstate for just over 20 years, with Allstate policies, you can stipulate what deductibles you wish to have on collision and comprehensive separate from each other. The more deductible you agree to pay, per claim, the less your premiums are for that particular coverage.

If you get your windshield replaced, you have to remember that the Honda Sensing camera has to be reprogrammed/Re-calibrated (which is covered by insurance in some instances as I was told by dealership where I bought it). The dealership tried to sell me a reprogramming service for $500 (normally $2000 according to them). I declined because if I had issues with my windshield, I would just go through my insurance.

I also discovered a chip in our windshield that on the right side obscured by the rear view mirror and all. I called and checked that my comprehensive coverage has a $500 deductible still on glass - my glass shop said just leave it rather than try to seal the chip and risk making it worse (50/50 chance). So we'll keep an eye on it to see if it grows - the glass tech thought it might just stay that way. That'll buy time for savings from the $500 deductible policy to self-fund a replacement.

Not sure where to put this in the forum

I have received hail damage in the form of three small dents in hood and two small dents in roof. Can dealer likely pull these back in place (vacuum) at minimal cost ? About how much might this cost ?

[I'd imagine admins might make this a topic of its own on as hail damage/paintless dent repair]

Hail damage is usually covered with comprehensive but for that few dents, you probably won't get past your deductible.

Most recently I had 3 or 4 light door dings taken out (all in cluster), it was $250 cash from my mechanic's paintless-dent-removal specialist. Previous visits with my Civic were $180 and $135.

My old Civic was caught in a hail storm before, had not noticed the light dings all over the car until friend mentioned that it'd be covered by comprehensive minus a deductible. My mechanic worked with the Geico adjuster and got $3K of repairs covered for my $500 deductible.

I've got one annoying ding left after having worked out a solution with my parking neighbor at home. Will splurge to have it taken out, though my 2019 has picked up a few beauty marks on one wheel, rear bumper, windshield, light scratches...

They may be able to do a dentless remove on the dents from the roof but not the hood. You hood is aluminum and it has no 'memory', like steel does.

I dealt with several paintless dent repair shops in Richmond Virginia before I retired. The aluminum is tougher to work the dents out but they would still fix them. Whenever aluminum PDR was needed, the shops insisted on 25% more cost to fix them.
