Back Glass Repair
Back Glass repair vs. rear window replacement
Your rear windshield can withstand a lot of force and can usually be successfully repaired. This saves you both money and time and can prolong the life span of your back glass.
This sort of smaller damage is usually caused by objects like gravel or hail that can hit your windows at high speed. We highly suggest you check your front and back windshield after every storm and make sure that there is no microdamage present. Since it can be hard to spot these micro-cracks, we always recommend you to glide your nails over the surface of the glass as they are likely to get caught on the micro imperfections.
These cracks may seem small and insignificant, but they can lead to your back window blowing up at the most unfortunate times. Cracks in glass can also damage the defroster mechanism and lead to lowered clarity of your rear window, which can obviously be very dangerous.

Things to consider when deciding between back glass repair and replacement
– Chip or crack needs to be only a few inches long
Longer cracks pose a greater danger. They significantly weaken the overall structure of your back windshield and can lead to it shuttering upon any kind of smaller impact.
– Many chips, even if small posses a treat
Chips weaken the specific area they are in, thus making the whole glass surface vulnerable to pressure. Very chipped windshields are likely to collapse and doo poor job of protecting you and your loved ones.
– If the damage is in front of a sensor or a camera, windshield replacement is needed
Newer car models often have some sort of sensor or a camera in the back. When we repair your glass, we fill in the gaps with a special glue that hardens to a semi-transparent finish. This can be a big obstacle for car sensors and cameras as it obscures their line of communication.
– Defroster system needs to be intact
This one is pretty self-explanatory. If the system is compromised, it can only bring you more trouble. We highly recommend you to replace damaged back windshields even in summer as you are likely to forget about the damage by the time fall comes around.
