Help on replacing garage door window

jammerSeptember 12, 2009

I need to replace a broken window in my metal roll-up garage door. The window casing is surrounded by cheap plastic molding. I was able to get the broken glass out, but I don't see how to get the new glass back into the casing. It seems as if I will need to cut the molding to put the new glass in. Is there an easier/better way?

Also, is there any reason not to put plexiglass in instead of glass? I don't need any insulation factor or anything like that due to the fair weather climate I live in. My kid broke the glass playing ball against the garage door, so plexiglass would be better.


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The moulding should come off, screws, clips,???. We always replaced with plexiglass, that way you only replace each pane once.
