Glass doors are a common fixture in most homes and commercial spaces today. They elevate the aesthetics of any space and have a wide variety of uses. However, glass is prone to getting damaged and, as the owner of a residential or commercial space, you might often find yourself in need of door glass replacement. With careful planning and execution, you can replace glass doors yourself or contact expert glaziers such as the ones at Advance Glass in Melbourne. Follow our handy step-by-step guide to ensure safe and effective door glass replacement.
To ensure a safe and streamlined process for your glass door replacement, make sure you gather the following tools and materials beforehand:
● Duct tape
● Caulking gun
● Glass cutter
● Eye protection
● Safety gloves
● Putty knife
● Rubber mallet
● Tape measure
● Replacement glass
● Lint-free cloth
First, prepare your work area by laying down a tarp to keep your area clean and to collect any broken pieces of glass and debris in one place. Use safety gear such as gloves and eye glasses when handling broken glass. Carefully remove all old and broken glass from its frame. In some cases, you might need to take the entire door frame off its hinges, depending on the way the glass was previously installed.
Before ordering your replacement glass, decide on the type of glass you would like as well as the specifications. At Advance Glass, you can choose from a variety of glass options that will influence the cost to replace a glass door.
You will then have to take precise measurements for your glass door replacement. Measure the height, width and length of your door opening to determine how much glass you will need. Get in touch with the professional glaziers at Advance Glass to order your high-quality door glass panels.
To install the new glass, apply caulk in the grooves of the door frame, carefully lift the glass panel and insert it into the frame. Make sure to ask for assistance or opt for professional help as handling a large glass panel by yourself can be difficult. Once the glass panel is inserted, hold it in place for a few minutes till the caulk hardens. Avoid using the door for 24 hours so the caulk can dry and the glass panel doesn’t get damaged.
Carefully seal and finish the new glass panel to prevent air and moisture from coming in through the gaps. This will help ensure that your glass doors are effectively doing their job. You can also apply a glazing compound around the edges of your door frame to successfully seal and finish your glass door replacement. Make sure to carefully remove any excess glazing compound and use a lint-free cloth to polish your glass panels as part of your finishing touches.
With our handy step-by-step guide, you can now replace your own glass doors. However, in the long run, you will reduce the cost to replace your glass door with the support of professional glaziers from Advance Glass. Contact us today on 03 9998 5681 for expert glass door replacement advice.
