Broken Window in Exterior Door

Submitted By

I just broke the window in my side door.  By tomorrow night it is going down to 9 degrees, not to mention it is NOT safe to have such easy access to the house.  I was planning on replacing the door and doorframe in the spring, and it is NOT a project I can accomplish tomorrow.  Does anyone know of something relatively clear to see through (like plexiglass) and  VERY strong, while also being temperature tolerant, that I can attach on both sides, so it is both solid and better able to keep out the cold?

Thanks for your help...

Thanks for your input. If it was warmer weather, I would have happily tried it myself. Although, there was so much paint on the door, I could not even find where the door frame met the pieces that held in the glass. It was not fun, but I ended up taking the entire door to the local hardware store. Considering the weather, they got it done in just about an hour...for which I was grateful. Actually, they had such a hard time at the hardware store getting it apart, it was better that I took it in there anyway. Now I know how to replace the glass, but hopefully won't break it any time soon. :)

HI projects by choice are MUCH more fun than the necessary ones, aren't they? :)
