What to Know Before Replacing Glass in Your Patio Doors

Replacing glass in your patio doors is a complicated and costly process, even for DIY experts.

  • If the glass is not removed and re-installed correctly, the process could further damage the door causing more broken glass or even require complete door replacement.
  • You’ll have to meticulously disassemble and reassemble the door panel, so you’ll need to be careful to avoid injuries and broken glass.
  • While you might intend to save money by doing it yourself, you may save more in the long run if you choose quality glass solutions that are built to last.

If you need glass replaced on your exterior doors, you’ll find responsive customer service, convenient scheduling, high-quality workmanship and upfront pricing with Glass Doctor.

What Affects the Cost of My Patio Door Glass Replacement?

The cost of glass replacements for exterior doors will depend on what type of patio door you intend to restore. For example:

  • Double pane glass in your door is typically more expensive to replace than single pane options because more glass product is involved. However, the two layers of glass reduce your energy bill and increase comfortability within your home by stabilizing the indoor temperature.
  • A sliding door glass replacement is necessary to ensure ease of access to your patio, but it will typically cost more to replace the entire glass pane for a sliding door, since the sheet of glass is much larger than the average window or glass door panel.

It is always important to weigh the advantages of different glass types, styles and sizes, and how they will affect the interior and exterior of your home.

You should take into consideration your budget, and how the replacement will pay off in the long-run. Your home will benefit from enhanced safety, insulation and energy savings, so these custom glass solutions are an investment that may increase the value of your home, and actually save you money over time.
