How are glass doors installed?

The process of installing a glass door differs according to the type you choose. There are several steps that must be taken.

  • Measure the door-both, the height, and width, making sure that the measurements are precise.

  • Remove the old door and frame.

  • Set the new door in the opening and check its size, this step is called the ‘dry set’.

     

  • Apply polyurethane caulk to the door’s sill and exterior sheathing and add the shims.

  • Adjust the shims to make sure no gap is left between the door and the frame.

  • Paint the door & add hardware.
