REAR WINDSHIELD SHATTERED?

When you contact Zenith Auto Glass for rear windshield repair, there are a few things our technicians will consider to determine whether repair or replacement is the best course of action:

  1. What type of glass is it? As we explained, tempered glass typically cannot be repaired, because it shatters. However, there’s always an exception. The extent of the damage is typically the deciding factor.
  2. Does the rear window have a defrost grid? Rear defrost systems often drive up the cost of repair to the point where you might as well opt for rear window replacement.
  3. Is there an antenna? The thin wires of a rear windshield antenna run between layers of glass. If they can be repaired, it’s usually costly.

In rare situations, a rear window is repairable, but it may cost more to fix the damage than to invest in new glass. Our knowledgeable 5-Star team who have over 100 years of experience, will help you make an informed decision. We are highly trained and use the most advanced equipment and techniques for rear window repair and replacement. Give us a call at 218-275-5555 today to get a free quote for rear glass repair.

CONTACT ZENITH TO REPAIR OR REPLACE A REAR WINDOW

Your rear window plays a critical role in the safety and functionality of your vehicle. If you notice any chips or cracks, it’s important to address them promptly to avoid rain, dirt, dust, and pests from entering, thieves from gaining easy access, and an increased risk of injury to you and your fellow passengers.

While a damaged front windshield made of sturdy, laminated glass can often be repaired if the chip or crack is small enough, rear windshields are made from tempered glass, which is designed to shatter on impact. For this reason, along with other factors, rear windshields need to be replaced in nearly every case.
