Finding a tradesman for glass door repair
When you need a repair job for a glass door, it is important to book a Pro as soon as possible.

What do you need to know about glass door repair?
A glass door can become damaged in several different ways. A broken pane could be caused by anything from slamming the door too hard to a burglary, while scratches could simply be down to the family dog. Regardless, it will be important to book your glass door repair quickly. In addition to what we have said previously about security and energy efficiency, broken glass doors are just unseemly, and could make it difficult to market your property to potential buyers or renters.
Before you start looking for a Pro, think back to when the glass doors were first installed: they may well still be covered!
Glass door repair jobs can often require quick call outs, and many companies will try to bank on that through their advertising. Be very cautious about this: a company might brag about its quick response times, but getting a tradesman to come out in a nick of time will likely mean additional costs for you. This will be especially likely if you need a glazier outside of normal working hours or at the weekend.
Keep in mind that repairs cost a lot less than replacements. If your glass door only has a minor flaw, such as a small crack, then the entire pane may not need to be replaced. The most expensive option will be replacing not just the broken pane, but the entire door. To give you a clue, replacing a panel can start at around £30 per paine, while replacing a patio door can cost hundreds.
The cost of your job will also depend on the materials involved. What type of glass is installed in your door? Double glazed units will be more expensive to repair or replace than single units, and safety or toughened glass panels will be more expensive still. The material of your door can also influence the price.
Your glazier should provide a guarantee or warranty for their work as standard, but be sure to ask about this, in case you need more help down the line.
