depends how they 'fixed it'. Did the windscreen come out for a proper paint job ? if so no worries, or was it just a quick fix 'patch up' ?
Unless you know of obvious damage the problem probably originated with a windscreen change and over-zealous scraping of the original sealing compound.
If it was just a quick fix then the problem is still inherent and waxoyl probably won't help.
