    Thoughts on repairing an arched double glazing panel in a front door frame?

    The crack is only on the outside facing pane

    Cost of glass x2 just incase it breaks when fitting plus labour.
    That's how they price up.

    But any glass company (they are local and loads about) will make one if you fancy having ago

    Unfortunately, your only option is a new double glazed unit :(

    They are easy enough to fit yourself if you feel you are able to, that'll save you a bit of money.

    Due to the shape, it would be best to make a template and take it to your local glass merchant who should be happy to help.

    As above,make a cardboard template of the shape,either by removing the glass,or ensuring you Mark the shape with a deduction of 5-6 mm all the way round the rebate,you will need to find the unit thickness,4-12-4,or 4-16-4 etc,you could consider choosing toughened glass for the new unit.
    It won’t be cheap even if DIY,if a window company is supplying and fitting expect a quote of over £300.

    The fitting will cost more than the unit. We'd probably be able to manufacture that for about £100.

    The family business manufacturers double glazed units.

    That’s the cost I was thinking to manufacture the sealed unit,it’s the travel time and fitting that is expensive,and some beads are a right pain to shift!
