With glass cracks, location is key. Cracks that are located towards the center of your windshield are typically easier to repair, while edge cracks may require a rear windshield replacement.

If not taken care of, glass scratches can begin to collect debris, which can make simple repairs a bit more difficult. They can grow into full glass cracks if not cared for. Deep glass scratches should be diagnosed and repaired by professional technicians, as the size, depth, and location of the scratch can call for a more intensive repair.

Rear Windshield Vs. Front Windshield Repairs
Customers may often be confused by the differences in rear or back windshield costs compared to front windshield repair costs. Rear windshields are made from tempered glass, unlike front windshields which are made from laminated glass. Tempered glass is designed to shatter into smaller pieces to prevent glass related injury. Price differences in repair types are often due to the different types of glass that the different windshields are made from. Also, if you’ve ever noticed the stripes on your rear window, it is because rear windshields often have a defrost grid that helps melt ice off your car in cold weather conditions. Because of these distinct differences in back windshield and front windshield glass, prices in repair types may vary.
