Mobile home sliding door replacement

Hi, I had a pane of glass break on my sliding glass door in my mobile home. The door of course is a hard one to come by and was hoping someone could lead me to someone specializing in mobile home repair or sliding door repair in the Charlotte, NC region. Thanks

Generally, especially with aluminum frame sliding glass doors, it is quite easy to remove the glazing unit (the glass pane(s) and any enclosing glazing seal. Normally you just remove any anti-lift stop or screw or shim, lift the door up and out, and set down where you can work on it. The frame usually comes apart easily with screws or bolts inset into the aluminum frame the glazing unit slides out, and you put a new one in. Some are even easier with retaining stop strips screwed onto the interior face that you just enscrew and lift the glzing unit out.

Call replacement glass companies to see if they do your type - Glass and Mirror is the Search the List category to look for well-rated and reviewed ones.

Other alternative - call a dealer who also does repairs on mobile homes and RV's or a specialty trailer/RV maintenance and repair place - most of them can get thins done or if necessary get a new unit to put in its place, but normally you can just replace the glass for about 1/3-1/2 the cost of whole new door installation.
