Replacing Your Rear Window
Replacing your front windshield is possibly the most common vehicle replacement type, but sometimes the rear windshield can also take damage. Just like with your front windshield, costs will vary based on things like the vehicle make, type of glass that is going to be used, be it aftermarket or OEM, and the degree of the damage.
Look Into Your Insurance Deductible
Before you file an insurance claim, compare the cost of the repair or replacement to your deductible. If the repair or replacement cost is going to be lower than your deductible, then your insurance agency most likely will not pay for the repair. However, if the repair cost is higher than your deductible, and you do decide to file an insurance claim, now is a good time to do it. Your insurance agency will tell you whether the repair is going to be covered or not.
