    Preparation

    Once the old doors are out, we prepared the rough opening for the new doors. We remove any old insulation, caulking and debris which might be in the way for the installation.

    Then we check if the sill is level and the sides are plumb and apply a few beads of calking at the bottom.

    Installation

    When the door frame is assembled its bottom goes in first and then we tilt it up so that the caulk beads we applied earlier aren’t disturbed.

    Then, we drive a few screws through the frame 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 and putting in more screws.

    When door panels are inserted they are adjusted and secured. Same goes with a screen.

    Finishing steps

    Now when the doors are in there a few finishes steps to be completed:

    • The Anti Lift is slid and screwed in between two doors.
    • The Dust Pad and Open Cell Foam are positioned in the right spots.
    • The Handle is installed.
    • The Flashing might need to be installed to cover any exposed wood outside.
    • The Caulking is run along the perimeter.

    All the jobs must be finished with the final inspection and a test run. And of course a clean up. 

Our clients ask

  • Is replacing a sliding glass door difficult?

    A patio door replacement project is medium to high on the difficulty scale for DIY projects. It's not a project the first-time DIYer should attempt. Only if you've had some experience removing and installing windows and doors should you give it a try.

  • What is the best material for a patio sliding door?

    Vinyl patio doors are one of the most common options to consider. They are cost effective, durable and won't corrode. Sliding doors are used often when space is limited because swinging doors need room to swing inward or outward when opened.

  • How much does it cost to put in a sliding glass door?

    For a Sliding Patio Door on average, homeowners should expect a price range of $1400 to $2200 to have it completely replaced, including all needed materials and labor. The cost of the project is primarily based on a door’s location and the type of door you want installed: color, miniblinds, capping, etc.

  • How long does it take to remove and install a sliding glass door?

    A professional team can have a sliding glass door fully installed in about 3-4 hours. This includes clean up afterward.

  • What do I need to install a sliding patio door?
    1. Patio Door.
    2. Wood Shims.
    3. Screws.
    4. Spray Foam Insulation.
    5. Exterior Grade Caulking.
    6. Step or Roll Flashing (to capp any exposed wood around)
    7. And don’t forget your tools.
  • What is the difference between a sliding door and a French door?

    While they are both stunningly wide doors, the main difference between French doors and sliding patio doors is the way they open. French doors are double doors that swing on hinges, while sliding patio doors slide on a track along the wall.

  • Should a sliding patio door be on the inside or outside?

    As a general rule, sliding doors should slide inside of the fixed panel. They can slide outside of the fixed panel; however, it's more secure for the panel to slide on the inside. If your sliding door slides on the inside, the track for the door will also be inside.

  • Can you replace sliding glass doors without replacing the frame?

    Sure, if the same doors are available. Most sliding doors simply lift out. Some have a retention mechanism that would need to be removed first. You'll probably need to level the doors to fit the frame using built-in adjusters and verify that the latch hardware still aligns.

    You can replace only one side of a sliding glass door in most cases. However, this mainly depends on the condition of the door frame and the level of damage done to it. Depending on various factors like model and design, you might have to replace the whole door instead.

  • Should you lubricate sliding glass door tracks?

    Yes, lubricating sliding doors is a great way to prevent them from sticking or jamming. The tracks often become dry, resulting in the doors requiring more force to open and close. Lubricating the tracks can assist with this, especially with steel rollers. New upgraded nylon rollers do not require a track lubrication.
