What can be replaced?

After removing the cracked glass from the canvas, a new insert must be installed in its place. Many people find it difficult to choose the right replacement material. Before proceeding with the description of possible alternative inserts, I would like to say that sometimes you can simply glue the broken or cracked glass using the following options:

  • A special decorative film in cases where a crack or chip is small. It is glued to all glass at once so that the door looks harmonious and complete.
  • Fiberboard sheet. This option is temporary and can only be used until a new glass is selected. To improve the appearance, it is also recommended to cover the temporary insert with decorative foil.

Other materials can be used for the final replacement of cracked glass in the door:

  • Ordinary glass. This material does not have any decor of its own, it is completely transparent, has wide availability and a low price. When choosing this option, it becomes possible to decorate it in any way in the future.
  • Plexiglas has a high level of strength, and it is very difficult to break it, but at the same time, scratches on such material appear quite quickly. This drawback can be eliminated with the help of a decorative film, which will decorate the door itself, and protect the insert from minor damage.
  • Decorative (stained glass) glass. This replacement option is the most stylish, beautiful and expensive. An insert made of such glass has an unusual appearance and high strength. True, you will need to spend a lot of time choosing a drawing suitable for the general style of the interior. It will be impossible to install some varieties of this material at home.
  • Tempered glass, characterized by increased strength, fire safety and sound insulation.

There are a lot of materials for replacing old cracked glass. It is worth giving preference to the one that most accurately suits not only its technical characteristics, but also its appearance.

Interior doors are often decorated with additional decorative elements, often you can see the decor in the form of a glass insert. But when using low-quality glass inserts or improper and careless operation of the door leaf, it may be necessary to dismantle this fragile part. Today we will talk about how the glass in the interior door should be replaced correctly.

How to fix loose glass in an apartment?

Glass in such door panels does not always crack or break. Much more often you can hear that it simply begins to stagger and make loud and unpleasant sounds at the same time. There are several ways to solve this problem without replacing the decorative insert:

  • You should purchase a special “sanitary” sealant, which is applied in a thin strip to the cracks formed between the insert and the wood.
  • Regular matches are inserted one at a time into the corners of the glass panel. Instead, you can use acrylic putty, which is also applied to the corners of the insert.
  • Small pieces of cork are generously greased with universal glue and inserted into the slots around the perimeter of the glass.
  • You can also carefully remove the glazing beads themselves, apply sealant to the glass, and reinstall them on top, but closer to the decorative panel itself.

All these methods of eliminating noise and movement of glass in the doors really help to get rid of the problem, and their implementation does not take much time.

How to insert with your own hands: step by step instructions

The installation of a new decorative part in the door leaf should not begin with the work itself, but with the measurement. It is necessary to accurately determine the size of the future insert. When performing measuring work, it must be remembered that the glass itself should not fit too tightly into the grooves, otherwise it may burst again from strong pressure.

To install a new insert, you will need the following equipment:

  • sealant;
  • small nails;
  • hammer;
  • glue;
  • rubber insert.

The replacement itself is performed quite simply in several stages:

  • The sealant is applied on one side of the door leaf in special grooves for glass.
  • The newly acquired insert is inserted into the elastic and then installed in the grooves. It is possible to glue glass and wood directly without using such a rubber seal, but such an installation will be unsafe, and the glass itself will be insecurely fixed in the grooves.
  • The sealant is applied again, but on the other side of the door.
  • After 5 minutes, the previously removed glazing beads are installed. If necessary, they should be securely fixed using special small nails.
  • The door leaf must be left stationary for another couple of hours. During this time, the entire structure is fully fixed inside the door.

It is possible to glue glass into a wooden door not only using a sealant, but also a special wood or universal glue. The application of the sealant also remains an obligatory part, but this stage is performed after the installation of the glass.

This work is best done after removing the door from its hinges. This installation option is the simplest and is suitable for glasses of a regular rectangular shape.

The very technology of performing the work can be used for other types of inserts installed not only in ordinary doors, but also sliding or collapsible.

If the glass is located in the side door, and it is not possible to remove the door leaf itself from the hinges, then it is necessary to fix the door leaf firmly so that it does not move during operation.

How to remove cracked glass?

Replacing broken or cracked glass in an interior door begins with removing it from the door leaf. The greatest difficulties arise if the glass insert is cracked, because it must be removed in such a way that the glass does not fall apart during dismantling.

It is best to carry out all work after the door has been removed from its hinges and placed on a flat, horizontal surface. If this is not possible, it is necessary to open the door and fix it securely in the lower part so that the door leaf does not stagger during operation.

On the cracks themselves, it is necessary to glue a transparent durable adhesive tape in several layers on both sides of the glass. It is very important in this case that the adhesive tape captures the intact part of it. Such a manipulation will allow the glass to be fixed and prevent it from falling apart during dismantling.

You will also need:

  • gloves, best of all rubberized on a fabric base;
  • broom and scoop;
  • chisel;
  • several pieces of thick paper;
  • small hammer.

All work must be done with gloves to help protect your hands from injury. The further procedure for removing cracked glass will consist of the following steps:

  • It is necessary to establish how exactly the glass insert is fixed in the door leaf. It can be brought inward through the end or secured with glazing beads.
  • If the glass is installed through the end, then the door will still have to be removed from the hinges. It can only be removed through a special hole.
  • If the insert is fixed with glazing beads, then using a chisel and a hammer, they must be slightly pushed aside. There is no need to completely remove these fasteners.
  • Then the glass is slowly removed from the canvas. It is better to do this with two people, especially if the insert is large. One person will have to hold the glass at the location of the cracks, and the second will carefully remove it from the door.
  • It is necessary to clean all grooves from sawdust, door putty or sealant.

The removed insert should be disposed of immediately after wrapping it in prepared paper. If in the process of work any piece of glass breaks off, it should be carefully swept up in the room.

There are no particular difficulties in performing such work. The main thing is to immediately prepare all the necessary material and perform the actions slowly.

It is worth paying attention to the condition of the gum, which is located between the glazing bead and the glass itself. If it is badly damaged or torn, it must be replaced with a new one.

How to change in the tsar door?

In addition to ordinary interior doors, today you can find side doors, which can also have a damaged glass insert. The tsargovoe door leaf differs from the usual one in that it has special reinforcement bars that securely fix the structure itself in the doorway. Replacing the insert in such a door will be performed as follows:

  • It is necessary to remove the door from the hinges using a screwdriver and first removing the plugs. Unscrew the bolts from the inside of the hinges.
  • The door leaf is laid on a flat horizontal surface located above the floor level.
  • Using a ruler or chisel, it is necessary to remove the remaining plugs located at the edges of the blade.
  • Remove fasteners with a screwdriver.
  • Using a hammer and a wooden block, it is necessary to disconnect the drawer side along the entire perimeter from the door itself. The direction of movement is from the bottom to the top. It is necessary to start removing the drawer side from the place where the fasteners were located.
  • After detaching the drawer side, it is necessary to carefully remove it from the canvas and, wearing gloves, remove the cracked glass from the grooves together with a silicone seal.
  • We measure the glass and buy a replacement for it.
  • But we put on a new insert and insert it into the grooves.
  • We install the drawer in place.
  • Now you need to assemble and install the entire canvas in the reverse order of the analysis of the structure.

Replacing glass inserts in the side door is considered more difficult than the work performed on ordinary interior doors, therefore, it should be approached very responsibly and carefully.

Installation options

There are two main ways to replace glass in interior doors, and each of them, in turn, has two varieties:

  • Installation of a new insert with protection or increase in size. In the first case, the cracked or broken glass is removed, and a new one is installed in its place, which has the same size. This work is considered the easiest and fastest.
  • In the second case, after dismantling the damaged insert on the door leaf, he draws an image of a new one with a pencil, then measurements are taken, and then glass of a suitable size is purchased. With the help of a hacksaw, the desired shape of the hole is cut out, special grooves are made in it, and only then the installation takes place. Such work requires special care in measurements and care when cutting out a new shape in the door, otherwise you can only spoil all the material without solving the problem.
  • Replacement of the insert with the use of quarters, non-standard work. Replacing cracked glass using quarters is the job that was described step by step earlier. In this case, quarters are called parts of the glazing bead.
  • A non-standard insert replacement is considered much more complicated and time-consuming. It is carried out in cases where the glass itself is inserted into the doors without the use of glazing beads. In this case, the process of installing a new decorative element will be as follows:
  • It is necessary to remove the plugs present at the end of the door leaf and remove the fasteners.
  • The door is removed from the hinges and placed on a horizontal surface.
  • The side part of the door leaf is removable. Usually, it is enough just to lightly pry it with a chisel or a thin iron ruler. In the opening that opens, glass will be visible, which is easy to get.
  • After removal, a new insert must be installed in the free space, and then the side plate must be fixed.
  • The final stage of such a replacement will be the assembly and hanging of the door.

Such a non-standard installation option resembles replacing glass in a side door, only it takes less time and is easier.

Replacing Glass on a Door with Wood Mouldings

There is another option for installing glass in an interior door. When it is made, LED lamps are additionally mounted in the grooves for insertion, which light up when they touch the glass. Please note that only professionals can do such work.

By and large, replacing glass in interior doors is not such a difficult process. It is important not to rush and clearly follow the advice given during its execution, then the successful completion of the work is guaranteed.

Broken glass removal

Remove glass fragments carefully, wearing gloves. First, with the help of a chisel, each glazing bead holding the glass in the door opening is successively loosened. They begin to pull out the broken remnants from the top row. Then it goes to the side sections and the bottom row is released last. If you need to loosen the fasteners a little more, then use pliers (remove the nails) or a screwdriver (to unscrew the screws). Glass fragments are carefully removed.

After removing the old shards, you need to clean the base to replace the glass. Remove all glazing beads, sweep away dust, dirt, paint residues from the edges of the opening, clean with sandpaper and wipe with a damp cloth.
