A damaged rear windshield should be taken seriously, and treated immediately. You vehicle’s rear windshield is located on the back end of your car. The rear windshield protects passengers and helps your vehicle keep its sturdy frame. Because rear windshields are made from safety glass, any cracks or chips to it can make it vulnerable to complete shattering, making complete windshield replacement the safest route for a secure repair. Rear windshields differ from front windshields, from shape to even the glass material they are made from. Rear windshields are made out of tempered glass, a type of glass that is strengthened by thermal treatments to be able to withstand blunt impact forces. Instead of breaking into shards when broken, tempered glass shatters into tiny granular pieces, and is often referred to as safety glass for this reason. To replace your rear windshield glass Good Auto Glass will ask what kind of vehicle you drive, noting the year, model, and make to find the correctly shaped and sized windshield glass for your car.
