Next, you have to decide whether you want a retrofit frame or a replacement frame. If the old frame is flush with the exterior material, such as in the case of stucco, then you want to get the retrofit frame, which comes with the outside fin. That will eliminate the need to trim the outside. If you have brick or siding surrounding the opening, then you need to get a replacement frame and trim the outside yourself. You can use wood, vinyl, or other composite materials available in most major hardware store chains. You also need to measure the depth of the old frame. The majority of vinyl replacement doors have a frame depth of 4 3/4". Most door openings, when framed, have a depth of 5 1/2" to the innermost surface of the wall, whether it′s drywall, plaster, or whatever else. Therefore, when you install the new door, you will need to add some sort of trim product to build the inside of the door frame so it is flush with the wall surface.
It seems you almost can′t build a house over 5000 SF any more without including a multi-slide door. What used to be a luxury is now almost a requirement. This being the case it appears that more and more consumers want to update their existing homes with these products. Their popularity cannot be denied so I feel the best way to discuss these doors are in terms of pro′s and cons. Then, you the homeowner can decide whether the decision is right for you or not.
A similar concept works for glass doors. When a solid door has been installed you are basically saying that your path ends where the door starts. A barricade for anyone who wants to enter has been placed. With a glass door you can see that there is more room on the other side thus adding to the illusion of more space.
