BANG! And then....

DH and I start searching for what could have caused that incredibly loud bang and one of our sliding glass doors has just shattered! There is a little round hole in the middle, but its surrounded by a screened pool enclosure and we didn't see any holes in the screen, though it was dark when it happened. It was so weird! No idea what caused this!

Was it tempered glass? I posted last year (I think?) about my shower door shattering in the middle of the night for no reason, and apparently it's something that happens with tempered glass sometimes. you can find stories about sunroofs doing that, shower doors, etc. https://www.constructionspecifier.co...o-do-about-it/

However, with a little round hole, that is more suspicious. You didn't find a bb or anything, did you?

Glad you and your DH are okay. Maybe in the light tomorrow you can solve the mystery. I hope so.

Wow! Sounds like it was shot. Look for a bb or bullet. But there would be a hole in the screens too....???

Maybe a large bird ran into the glass? That is pretty scary!

Sounds like a BB gun. Someone shot at my front door years ago. The screen hole was so tiny you could barely see it and the glass in the door looked just like yours.

Thanks friends! We're all cleaned up and fixed now! We really have no idea what caused this unless like others have said its the tempered glass. There were no holes in the screen and we also have a 6 ft. fence surrounding our backyard. If anyone had been actually within the enclosure I am sure with two dogs in the house.... Makes me nervous now anytime I get near one of the doors or take a shower !
