My glass storm door shattered yesterday. Opening the wood front door made a vacuum that made it give up. It wasn’t that hot, so I guess the glass may have had a defect or other stressor that finally gave up.
A neighbor across the street heard the shatter. He was outside for a while before I opened the door, and he and I think he would have noticed if my glass was already shattered but still in place before I opened it.
A new door is only around $200, and the current one’s warranty does not cover glass, so we’re just going to buy a new door. I’ll throw it up over the next few weeks.
