Mystery Door Repair

My broken door glass

A few weeks ago in a large windstorm, the outside screen/glass door on my house blew open and caught the wind, bending some of the spring mechanism, pulling some of the hinges out of the wall, and most noticeably, smashing the large glass pane. I wasn’t home at the time, so when I got home, I was greeted with a large pile of broken glass on my door step and front lawn.

The door was old, so I wasn’t too disappointed about the prospect of replacing it with something newer. I intended to go get a replacement door, but didn’t get around to it. Then, I went to California for a few days, and when I came back, the glass pane was replaced in the old door with new glass.

At first I figured my parents had done it, since they often help me out with things around my house (thanks mom & dad), but they were as confused as I was – especially wondering why I would replace the glass when I wanted to replace the whole door. My girlfriend knew nothing of it, nor did any of my friends and co-workers.

So, I don’t know who did it! I have two witnesses that saw a glass company truck at my house doing the work, so it was professional, but they don’t remember which company.

I’ll call around the to glass companies in town next week and I’ll post an update here if I solve the mystery.

Anyone here have any clues?

  1. My guess is that you a) have some very nice neighbours looking out for you and not wanting a fuss (I keep hearing how great Canadians are), or b) snooty neighbours who weren’t too impressed by your strewing smashed glass about the place and dragging the neighbourhood down! 😉

  2. I can only assume the person that replaced the glass was the same person who was caulking your door when I was there. I should have looked closer at the name on the truck.
