One of the most common questions we asked is “can glass be added to my fiberglass front door?” Most people asking this are under the impression that decorative glass inserts can only be installed on metal or wood front doors. However, this is simply not the case.
Simply put, yes, many of the glass designs you see in wood and metal doors can also be added to fiberglass doors. The process is relatively the same, but should be done by a professional. Fiberglass doors are typically one solid piece, stamped out of a mold. To insert glass into this type of door, a portion of the design will be completely removed to make space for the glass. This is typically cut along the design lines so as to look more natural and original to the door.
When installed correctly, a decorative glass insert is just as secure as the solid door was before installation. Each piece of glass is specially designed and ordered to fit your door and the cut out section. This glass is also energy efficient and won’t lead to soaring electric bills.
While our most popular insert designs are oval or round, this shape doesn’t work well with every door design. Lucky for you there is a wide range of square, rectangle, and even triangular decorative glass shapes which can be installed in your door.
