How to Replace Your Garage Door Windows

If you have windows in your garage door that are broken, they can be replaced. The team here at Neighborhood Garage Door Service of Atlanta, GA can replace your windows for you if they are damaged. Also, we put together a quick guide that can help you make the replacement on your own if you’re a DIYer. Here’s how you can replace your garage door windows:

1. Tools You Need

In order to replace your window, there are certain tools you need. In addition to your safety gear such as gloves and goggles, you will need:

  • A glazing compound
  • Putty knife
  • Paintbrush
  • Glazier’s points
  • Paint for the wood frame (choose a paint that matches your other windows)
  • Ladder

Once you have all of the tools and your replacement window, you can take out the old glass.

2. Remove The Old Window

In order to remove the glass, we recommend you wear your gloves and goggles. This will keep shards of broken glass from getting into your eyes or embedded in your skin. You will need to loosen the glass and carefully remove it. Take each broken piece out one at a time.

3. Get the Replacement Glass

Take accurate measurements of the glass in your window. You should be able to go to the hardware store and find a pain that will work as the replacement. You may want to buy more than one size just to be on the safe side.

To measure the glass, you will need to:

  • Measure the height and width and then subtract ⅛ of an inch so the new pane will fit in your garage door.
  • Measure how thick the glass is. You’ll have to do this after you take out the old piece.

If your glass is still in-tact when you take it out, you could take it with you to the store to help pick out the replacement. However, if it is completely broken, then you will have to rely on your measurements.

4. Insert the New Glass

Make sure that the glass fits in your frame before putting the glazing compound around the edges. Once you know it works, run a ¼ inch bead of glazing compound around the outside of the glass. Push it inside the frame firmly.

Place new glazing points on the glass edges to keep it secure inside of the frame. The putty knife can be used to help you move them into position. Put a glazing point every 4 to 6 inches around your glass.

After all of the glazing points are in place, put more compound around the edges. Smooth out the compound with the putty knife.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
