Often homeowners wonder whether to repair door glass that is slightly cracked or chipped. Is it really worth the time and money? At Clinton Glass, we see a number of broken or cracked windows each week. We understand the deliberation between getting a repair on a door that seems to still be functioning and getting it fixed fast.
A small crack may not seem like a big deal—until it is. The fact is that cracked glass has been compromised. It is no longer as sturdy as it once was, so another bump or door slam could result in broken glass. This glass could pose a hazard, especially if you have young children or pets in the house.
A front door with broken glass isn’t as energy efficient. The bigger the crack, the more air or moisture that might be getting into the glass or even your home. For peak energy efficiency, you need to have a front door with glass that’s fully intact to seal out the elements.
3. Curb Appeal
Let’s face it: When your front door is damaged, it’s just not as welcoming to neighbors, family, and friends who stop by. While that might work out in your favor with door-to-door salesmen, you don’t want your front door to say “get away” to people you want to welcome into your home. Fixing that glass can cure this curb appeal issue.
