This is not a hard fix, but because most sliding glass doors are quite heavy, it is best if you have another person present to help you. The first step is to examine how your sliding glass door is fixed to the track. The majority of sliding glass doors have a strip that runs along the top of the frame that holds the doors in vertical alignment, positioning the wheels to fit neatly over the sliding track. To begin, let′s use a simple screwdriver to remove that strip at the top. Once the strip is removed, slowly tilt the door out of the frame, then remove it out of the frame all-together. Turn the door on its side and examine the wheels at the bottom of the door. Remember, some sliding glass doors can be upwards of 90 pounds, so either acquire some help or be very confident in your physical ability.

Poor Energy Efficiency - Usually multi-slide doors are such large openings that they need to be made of aluminum to be able to manufacture such large openings. As you probably know, aluminum isn′t very energy efficient. Also having such large sections of your home being glass will also require more energy to heat and cool as opposed to if there was just wall space there. However, luckily glass is getting more energy efficient all the time, and there are several low-e glasses available that perform surprisingly well.

Most manufacturers only sell the product as an installed unit because of the difficulty of installing them; they require all installers to be factory trained employees. Even manufacturers that don′t install, usually require vendors to be licensed glaziers.

You want to measure across the bottom, center, and top of the existing door frame to find the narrowest dimension. Start outside and measure at the point where the old door frame stops and the exterior material starts. That material can be stucco, siding, or brick. Measure across in the 3 places: bottom, center, and top. Record the smallest dimension. Then go inside and do the same thing. You want to measure where the frame ends and the drywall, plaster, or sheetrock begins. Take all six measurements, find the narrowest one, and deduct 3/4". That is the width of the new door. Now, when you measure the height, you can do it just on the outside. Measure the left, center, and right side from the ground where the bottom track sits, up to the top where the old frame ends and the exterior material begins. Take the narrowest dimension and deduct 1/2". That is your height of the new door. Then, determine which side the sliding panel should be on. The fixed panel is designated by the letter "O", and the slider is an "X". In most areas of the country, you call it out by looking at the door from outside and reading left to right. So, if you were outside looking at your door, and you want the sliding panel to close to the right wall, you would ask for an "OX". However, because i have recently discovered that not all parts of the country do it this way, my suggestion is to ask the dealer how they read the opening before placing your order.

If glue or any other type of adhesive was used on the old one, make sure that any remaining matter is scraped off to allow the new door handle to be installed as smooth as possible. Next, make sure that the holes on the door itself are of equal distance with the holes on the new glass handle. If the holes match, proceed to drill in the screws. If new ones need to be drilled, mark the surface with a pencil where you wish to place the new screws. If you are installing a glass handle that does not require screws, you may use an adhesive to install the new handle. Make sure that that you use a strong water proof adhesive that will withstand heat and steam. After you′ve applied the adhesive and have installed the new glass handle, do not use the handle for several hours until the handle is firmly secured.

If you think about it, when a person tells you that the room behind a solid wooden door is forbidden you will take it seriously because you can′t see what is on the other side. If someone says that the room behind the glass door is forbidden you wouldn′t find it as intimidating. Why? It′s because you can see through the glass. You can see what is on the other side. Keeping that in mind you realise how much more space you really have. The glass doors also give a modern vibe to the setting of the room and house. Most modern elements revolve around space and minimalism.

Once you have purchased a glass door handle and have determined that all the pieces are included in the handle set, you are ready to start installing the piece. Before you start installation though, be sure an instruction sheet is included in the sheet. More often than not, you may not have to use these instructions. If you have never installed a glass handle, you will need the instructions. More often than not, you will be replacing a handle that′s already in place. If the glass handle you′re installing is identical or similar to the one you′re replacing, you may not need the instructions and will be able to do the installation within minutes. Here is an example of how to replace a glass door handle on a glass shower door.

Clearly this is why very few bathrooms have doors made from glass! But there is a way in which you can enjoy the benefits of a glass door being able to allow light to pass through it whilst also enjoying a certain amount of privacy. Frosted glass, or even coloured opaque glass can be used for both partitions and doors to create an attractive feature which also provides the privacy required.
