Question Source for entrance door glass panels

Where can I go to purchase glass panel assemblies for use with my existing steel entrance doors. I want to avoid repacing the doors themselves.HELP!

Assuming that these doors already have glass in them, you could either try a local glass shop, or contact the door mfgr. (The mfgr. usually embosses their name someplace on the edge of the door.)

Thanks for taking the time to reply to my questin. Unfortunately, my current doors do not have any glass panels. However, these doors were the core doors used for the glass style units offered when my house was built in 1982. Therefore, I was hopiong to find a company that offers complete glass assemblies that I could add to my existing doors.

So you have a solid steel door now and want to put a glass unit in them ??

Weeeeellll......I guess you could, but you do understand that means routing out an accurate opening.....and it would scare me to take any kind of hand router to that task....door companies use CNC overarm routers that are about a $50k investment.......then you also have to come up with the plastic mouldings that hold the glass on either the time you do all that AND pick the metal shards out of your hide, new doors are gonna start to look REAL cheap
