Car back glass replacement in Calgary
If you’re looking for a rear car window replacement for your vehicle, you’ve come to the right place. 5 Star Auto Glass specializes in repairing and replacing windshields, side windows, side mirrors, and rear windows. Unlike a front windshield made of laminated glass, rear windows are tempered glass that will shatter into tiny chunks of glass instead of shards to prevent injury. This is why they’re often referred to as “safety glass”.
Car back glass replacement is not only necessary when the glass has shattered, however. You’ll need a car back glass replacement if:
- The glass has a small chip or crack that will continue to spread.
- Rocks and other debris have shattered the glass.
- You’re involved in a car accident that has damaged the rear windshield, even if the damage is minor.
- You notice leaks around the perimeter of the glass, an indicator of a poor seal.

A rear windshield is a large piece of glass to cover the back of a vehicle.

Our technicians have the expertise to install a new rear window properly and test the heat conductors to ensure they work. This is an important step as frost, ice, and fog are common in Calgary.

Your vehicle’s rear window does more than provide you with a clear view of the road. All auto glass is an essential safety feature, including the windshield, rear window, and side windows. Delaying a replacement or repair poses a safety and security risk, and leaves you vulnerable on the road. Additionally, you risk being fined for driving with a broken car window.

Any broken or damaged glass is more susceptible to shattering during a collision, posing a safety risk for you, your passengers, and others on the road. Furthermore, damaged glass obstructs your view and can be distracting.

For this reason, a damaged window can also become a health risk and affect the comfort of yourself and your passengers. If your rear back window has shattered, avoid driving your vehicle unless it’s to the auto repair shop.
- Protection – Having a shattered back window is an easy invitation for potential car thieves. If any of your vehicle windows are shattered or missing, avoid parking it on the street. It should be securely stored in a garage or even a temporary storage unit until you can get the glass repaired.
