Window Repair and Sliding Glass Door Repair: How to Choose?

Call for Glass RepairWe love repairing glass windows in Fort Lauderdale, as you might have guessed from our name. However, we also take great pleasure in Ft. Lauderdale sliding glass door repair.

Yes, we know we don’t mention sliding glass door repair in our name but as we have said elsewhere, when we started in business over 15 years ago we set out to offer glass window repair, so we thought that was a logical name for our business. It sort of does what it says on the tin.

Inundated With Call for Glass Repair, Fort Lauderdale

However, within weeks of opening our doors for business (if you’ll forgive the pun) we were getting inundated with calls from people who needed Ft. Lauderdale sliding glass door repair. So we very quickly decided we should add that to our window repair service and now we do that too.

And we do love repairing sliding glass doors. It gives us a tremendous amount of satisfaction to see the smile light up on the face of a homeowner who has been struggling with an obstinate sliding glass door for weeks, months, or in some cases years! Yes, believe it or not, some people will wrestle with a sticking and jamming sliding glass door for years. We have no idea why they tolerate it, but the fact is that they do.

A No-Brainer

It’s really a no-brainer to have your faulty sliding glass door repaired. It doesn’t cost very much and you can have a door that once again opens with a fingertip and slides backwards and forwards as quiet as a whisper, just as it did when new, so why put up with one that doesn’t?

Maybe some people think that a sliding glass door that is sticking and juddering will somehow correct itself, but of course that isn’t going to happen. It will only get worse.

Moving Parts: Sliding Glass Doors Have a Lot of Them (And They Break)

Sliding glass doors have a lot to put up with, although they appear to the layman as very simple. However, they contain a lot of moving parts, and as with anything, moving parts are subject to wear and tear. You may never have done the sums – there’s no reason why you should really – but if you go out into the yard five times a day and your door is 40 years old it has slid back and forth for 150,000 times. If you have kids running in and out that might be as much as a quarter of a million!

On top of that, in the fall leaves may get blown into the runners, pet hair gets in there from the dog or cat, bird feathers may get in, mud from the yard when you come in if it’s wet, creepy crawlies like slugs may enter – the list goes on. It’s no wonder that sliding glass doors decide to go on strike eventually.

So when we have cleaned all that out, replaced any runners or rollers as necessary, and given everything a drop of oil it’s a joy to see the look of happiness on the family’s faces. That’s why we love Ft. Lauderdale sliding glass door repair. Call for Glass Repair
