Here’s a step-by-step process of how to replace your french door glass:
1. Evaluate the Damage
The good news is that if only one pane of glass in your French doors is damaged, you do not need to replace the entire door. Simply replace the broken panes of glass. Examine the number of broken glass panes and determine which ones will need to be replaced.
2. Remove the Splintered Glass
This phase is arguably the most dangerous, so if you are unsure about your ability to complete it safely, contact a local glass firm for assistance. Using protective gloves and goggles, carefully remove the shattered glass from the frame and store it in a paper bag for disposal. Before removing damaged but unbroken glass, seal the cracks using duct tape. After removing the door’s glass, always sweep and vacuum the area around the door to remove any remaining debris.
3. Eliminate the Trim and Glazing Points
Using a small pry bar or pliers if necessary, remove the window’s trim and glazing points from the window’s perimeter. Remove any leftover fragments of glass and scrape away any old glazing compound from the frame.
4. Calculate and Cut Glass
Measure the opening and subtract 18 inches from the height and width to determine the required size for your new piece of glass. You should then cut a replacement piece of safety glass to the specified dimensions, as safety glass will not shatter if your French door breaks again. If you do not know how to cut glass properly, call a local glass firm to create a piece of glass to fit your door.
5. Arrange The Glass
Spread a little drop of glazing compound along the frame’s perimeter, then press the glass pane into place. Push the glazing points into the frame to secure the glass, then reinstall the stops and re-tap the brad nails. Utilize a nail punch to embed the brad nail heads. Fill nail holes and any gaps in the frame with wood filler. Finally, the door frame can be painted to match the rest of the door.
