The cost of glass will vary greatly. It will be different for each window company.

When you call a glass shop they will ask What size the glass panel is? Is it a dual pane glass? Is it a "Low-E? Is it tinted and if yes, what is the tint? If you need the glass company to install the window, they will want to know what kind of wall is the window in now, i.e. stucco, wood, etc. The will also need to know if the window frame is aluminum or fiberglass or wood. Best way to get an accurate price is if you request that somone come and look at the door . They can answer the questions and measure for themselves. The can give you an estimate, that is usually exactly what it will cost, right away. The can also give you the install price. If you do not want anyone to come to your home right now. Do the measuring and make a list of the window features then make the call to a couple window dealers and let them know you are trying to get an idea of cost.

Here is an almost identical questions - your's under another Guest name maybe, from earlier today, with rough cost numbers in answer -

Note that the building code requires that sliding glass door glass be safety glass (like car windows) so it is quite a bit more expensive than regular glass, plus of course you are looking at a pretty big expanse of glass.
