“I blame Joanna Gaines,” Stephanie laughed. “We watch too much DIY television and before you know it, my husband and I decide we’re going to upgrade the deck. So we’re out there with the ladders and the tools and the lumber, getting ready to do our thing, and all of a sudden, CRASH! Somebody put a two by four right through the sliding glass door. Now what do we do? Can a sliding glass door be fixed?”
For Sliding Glass Door Repairs, Choose an Expert Glass Contractor
If you’ve broken your sliding glass door, don’t bother heading to the hardware store. You’ll save yourself a lot of time, energy, effort and money if you go to the appropriate professionals directly. Many homeowners don’t know this, but there are contractors who specialize in glass installation. Commercial glass companies repair windows, sliding glass doors, skylights, and all kinds of interior glass features for homeowners. They also install new windows and doors if you’re interested in upgrading.
The glass in a sliding door is typically either insulated double pane or a safety glass. Your local commercial glass contractor will generally be able to make the repair on location. It’s important to have a broken sliding glass door repaired promptly, because a damaged door presents an opportunity thieves and other criminals will take advantage of.
An Opportunity To Upgrade the Sliding Glass Door
“My Mother always taught me blessings come wrapped in problems,” Stephanie said. “And since the door was broken anyway, we talked to our local glass contractor about what our upgrade options were. While I love the sliding glass door, I don’t love how bright and hot it can get in the dining room. We decided to go with tinted glass in the new door. It’s a subtle change but one that really changed how much I enjoy that room.”
