Glass backsplash cracked :(

4 years ago
last modified: 4 years ago

I have a backpainted glass backsplash, installed about a year ago. Since installation I have noticed that it gets hot where my gas oven vents, though I have been careful not to let heat from the back burners affect it. I just noticed a crack, from side to side, across a lower corner, about 3-4 inches long, after I used the oven at high settings for an extended period. It is flat and intact.

I pretty much have to DIY whatever solution I come up with. My preference is something thin-ish that would adhere to the existing cracked glass - the panel above the stove is separate and just behind the stove. It would have to be heat resistant. Ideas?

The other solution would be to pry out the cracked panel, which I'm a little worried about attempting, and tile or something in that area. Would peel and stick tile work if it got hot?

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions!
