Doorwin French Door Glass Replacement Guide

French doors add elegance and charm to any home, but over time, their glass panels may need replacement due to damage, wear and tear, or simply to give your doors a fresh look. In this blog post, we will provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to replace the glass in your Doorwin French doors.

Materials You'll Need:

  • Gloves
  • Safety glasses
  • Tape measure
  • Putty knife
  • Glass cutter
  • Glass cleaner
  • Window glazing compound
  • Painter's tape
  • Clamps
  • Scrap wood
  • Paint

Step 1: Safety First

Before you begin, put on your safety gloves and glasses to protect yourself from any potential injuries. Safety should always be a priority when working with glass.

Step 2: Measure and Remove the Old Glass

Using a tape measure, carefully measure the dimensions of the glass panel you need to replace. Disposable glass panels in Doorwin French doors are often held in place with glazing compound or molding. Soften the glazing compound with a putty knife and carefully remove it. Once the compound is removed, gently take out the old glass panel.

Step 3: Cut the Replacement Glass

Using the measurements you took earlier, mark the dimensions on a new piece of glass. Make sure to use a glass cutter to score the lines and then break the glass along the scored lines. Remember to wear safety gloves and glasses during this process to avoid any injuries.

Step 4: Clean and Prepare the Frame

Thoroughly clean the frame where the new glass will be placed. Remove any debris or old glazing compound. Apply a fresh coat of paint to match the door frame or as desired. Allow it to dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Step 5: Install the Replacement Glass

Apply a thin layer of glazing compound onto the frame where the new glass will sit. Carefully place the replacement glass panel into the frame and press it firmly against the compound. Secure the glass with painter's tape and use clamps and scrap wood to hold it in place while the compound dries. Leave it undisturbed for the recommended drying time mentioned on the glazing compound's packaging.

Step 6: Final Touches

Once the glazing compound is completely dry, carefully remove the painter's tape, clamps, and scrap wood. Clean any excess compound with a putty knife and use glass cleaner to ensure a crystal-clear finish. Your Doorwin French door with the new glass panel is now ready to enhance your home's beauty once again!


Replacing the glass on your Doorwin French doors might seem like a daunting task, but by following this step-by-step guide, you can easily achieve beautiful results. Remember to prioritize safety, take accurate measurements, and follow the instructions carefully.
