7 Easy Steps in How to Remove a Sliding Glass Door

1. Open the sliding panel and locate the two roller adjustment screws toward the bottom of the panel. Turn the adjustment screws counterclockwise with a Phillips-head screwdriver to raise the bottom rollers. The door panel will lower as you raise the wheels. If you have a headstop on the top of your door track, remove the screws securing the head-stop with the Phillips-head screwdriver. The head-stop is a piece of decorative trim that covers the inside edge of the top door frame Architectural Glass Doors

2. Ask a friend to help lift the sliding door panel up into the upper track, and swing the bottom of the door panel toward you. Lower the door panel until it clears the upper track and set the panel out of your way Glass Bathroom Shelves

3. Remove any screws and brackets securing the stationary panel to the door frame. Most often there will be an L-bracket between the edge of the stationary panel and the door track. There also may be a piece of trim on the lower track that runs the entire width of the opening. Remove the screws with the Phillips-head screwdriver, and remove the brackets and trim pieces Glass door

4. Cut around the seam of the stationary panel where it contacts the door jamb with a utility knife. This will cut through any paint or caulk that is securing the panel to the jamb. Ask your helper to hold the side of the stationary panel while you pry it out of the opening. Insert a flat pry bar between the lower track and bottom of the stationary panel. Lift up on the panel, and pull the lower part of the panel toward you. Remove the panel completely from of the opening with the assistance of your helper Glass Sliding Doors

5. Remove all of the inside trim around the perimeter of the door. Use the pry bar to lift the trim away from the wall enough that you can see the shaft of the nails. Carefully grab the nail shafts with the claw of your hammer or the pry bar and remove the trim from the wall Shower  Glass Doors

6. Insert a bi-metal blade into your reciprocating saw and cut any nails securing the door frame to the walls and header. The bi-metal blade will cut through nails, wood and screws around the perimeter of the door frame Shower Door Installation

7. Pry up the threshold of the door frame with the pry bar and a hammer. The threshold most likely will have glue securing it to the sill. You will need to use some force when prying the threshold. Lift the frame out of the opening with the assistance of your helper. Remove any protruding nails and excess shims from the opening prior to installing your new sliding door Sliding Glass Doors

Remove a Sliding Glass Door

1 – Protect your Floor
Sliding glass doors are heavy and have sharp edges on the bottom which can scar a floor surface if the door is dropped or set down to hard on the floor. To protect the floor you should lay a piece of heavy cardboard or an old quilt on the floor where you plan to stand your door once you remove it from its frame Architectural Glass Doors

Step 2 - Remove the Screen Door
Holding both edges of the screen door, raise the door until the bottom rollers clear the track, and then pull the bottom of the door toward you. If you cannot raise the door far enough for the rollers to clear the track, place the front edge of a flathead screwdriver or pry bar under the rollers and pry upward. You may need to pry both ends of the door up in order for it to clear the track. To remove the door, pull it toward you Sliding Glass Doors

Step 3 – Remove the Glass Stationary Door
Have someone help you lift the door, then pull the bottom of the door outward toward you and out of the lower track. The top of the door will still be inserted into the top track, so lower the door until the top door edge clears the upper track. You may need to remove retaining screws at the top, middle and bottom edges of the door Glass Bathroom Shelves

Step 4 – Remove the Sliding Door
You'll find the sliding door easier to lift from its track if you slide it to the center of the track. This door will be heavy and may require you to use a sturdy pry bar to lift it enough for it to clear the track it's in. If you are unable to lift the door high enough to clear the track, insert a flathead screwdriver beneath the roller wheels in the track, and pry the wheel upward until it clears the track Glass Sliding Doors
Step 5 –Alternative Steps to Remove the Door
If the door still won't clear the lower track when it's raised, it is probably because you need to adjust the rollers at the bottom edge of the door. Locate the adjustment screws at the door's bottom corner. There, you'll see a small hole. Insert a Phillips screwdriver into this hole and turn the screw inside the hole counterclockwise. This should raise the roller and allow you to lift the door and pull the bottom edge toward you and away from the bottom track Shower  Glass Doors

All frame-less glass shower enclosures are made of tempered glass and come in many varieties of finishes, styles, glass textures and patterns to aesthetic appetite. Because of their unique design they require quality hinges and hardware in order to operate properly. are self closing or soft closing and have integrated water seals.
