If your rear windshield or side windows have been damaged, cracked, or shattered, it’s probably time to consider replacements. For your own safety, removing cracked and shattered windshields or side windows can be hazardous, so it’s best to leave such a project up to the professionals. When this does happen, however, we encourage you to give us a call right away so you aren’t forced to drive your car, in need, with shattered or broken glass in the proximity.
Rear Windshield Replacement
Rear windshield replacements are available to fit your car and provide the same amount of protection as your last windshield. Whether you have an SUV or a sedan, we provide rear windshields that are fitted to your car type and adjusted to any windshield wipers that are existing on the frame. Rear windshield replacements may also need to be specially made, ordered, or measured to fit the space available, if your vehicle is a newer model. Some rear windshields could require curve fitting, or with appropriate thermal defrosting systems to help reduce snow and ice buildup on the back of your car.
Window replacements for the sides of your windows may also need to be fitted, depending on the style and type of car you have. Sedan windows are slightly smaller than SUV windows, while windows for sportscars are even smaller or more defined in shape to fit their frames. Whatever kind of car make and model you have, we’re not only able to find the right kind of windows to repair the passenger sides, but we can also custom make windows and fit them to your car’s needs.
Types of Auto Glass
There are two main types of auto glass that are available for your car, including tempered glass and laminated glass. The two different types of glass serve different purposes for different areas of your car. If your front or rear windshield need to be replaced, the type of glass used to create new windshields for these surfaces is often laminated glass, while the glass used for passenger and driver windows will often be tempered. To prevent excessive injury, when your side windows break or shatter, tempered glass is designed to break into less hazardous pieces when it deteriorates. Laminated glass is also less prone to scratches, which work great in conjunction with driving hazards on the roads and your windshield wipers on the front and rear windshields.
If your new windows need expert tints to help them match the rest of your car windows, we can assist with referring you to another trusted company that provides expert window tints for your new car. Since most new windows do not come tinted, or if you have a specialty tint job on your windows that you want matched, you’ll have to go to a professional who can help you achieve the desired look. Tinting your windows does not damage them nor does it reduce their quality and durability, but you will have to take your car into another professional for the same or similar look. We are also offer rearview and sideview mirror repair service.
