Exterior Door Glass

Offering French, Patio, Sliding, Front, and Storm Door Installation and Replacement

Do you have cracked, broken, or foggy glass in one of your doors? Do you think you might need door glass replacement? Almost all door glass is tempered double-pane glass which we can change out quickly without any disruption or mess. Older doors and storm doors may only be single-pane glass, which is also simple to address.

It is much easier and significantly less expensive to do glass door replacement and keep your beautiful door. We offer many choices.

Up to Code

By code, door glass must be safety glass. All our door panels will be tempered for your protection. Tempered glass is tougher glass which breaks into pebble-sized pieces which is much less dangerous than shards of old-fashioned annealed glass.

Single-pane glass still exists in older doors and storm doors. Generally, standard clear glass is used to replace these panels. However, there are a variety of options, including patterned and restoration glass, available. Cut to size and tempered, this is generally a quick and reasonably-priced option. It is less energy efficient than double-paned glass.

Double-paned glass is now the standard in door glass. Also known as dual pane, double glazed, insulated glass, and thermal pane. It is energy efficient and offers outside noise reduction. In addition to cracking and breaking, the seals in double pane glass can fail. When this happens, condensation can get in between the panes–ruining the view.

Traditional glass has a slight green tinge, which tends to make the view slightly darker. You can go with a crisper view by choosing a clearer low-iron glass. For more on low iron glass, click here.

How do you change single-pane glass?

Single-pane glass is cut to size and tempered. This is the standard for storm doors in older exterior doors that cannot accept insulated double-pane glass. In places with high breakage concerns, we use acrylic sheets. Acrylic is sometimes called by one of its brand names, Plexiglass®. We sell high-quality Plaskolite acrylic. In extreme security situations we can use super strong polycarbonate glass.

How do you change double-pane glass?

Most modern french and sliding patio doors come with removable glass panels similar to modern windows. Rather than changing the whole door we can simply pop out the panels and replace the glass. Many times, replacing the whole door involves costly and messy work of jamb replacement. You can dramatically reduce the work and expense by buying a replacement double-pane insulated glass panel.
