Installation process

Although our installation process may differ depending on the particular setup, the main steps are as follows.

    Once the old doors are out and we have a rough opening, which has to be prepared for the new door. First, we have to check if the sill is level and the sides are plumb.

    Then, we need to make the opening completely watertight. To do so, we apply a foil tape to the threshold and then run it along the entire opening wrapping it around the corners, after which we put the sill support back in.

    On top of the foil tape, we put a few beads of silicone to form a weathertight seal at the bottom of the door sill.

    Usually, the bottom of the door goes in first and then we tilt it up so that the caulk beads we applied earlier aren’t disturbed. In order to make the door lighter, we remove the sliding panel, take the door and then slowly lift it into place.

    Then, we drive a few nails through the door fins to hold it in place temporarily. After that, we check the sill for level and the jambs for plumb. Now it’s time to begin shimming the door to hold it securely in place.

    Final touches

    We apply an additional layer of foil tape on the outside along the frame and finally install the sliding door. Once it’s done, we install the exterior wood trim, insulation, and then trim the shims on the inside part of the frame. The last thing is installing hardware - door handles, mini-blinds, etc.
