If, on the other hand, your door is hitting the top plate of your door frame, you can adjust this by finding the screw holes at the very bottom of you sliding glass door. On most sliding glass doors, there are two screws which can be turned with either a flathead screwdriver or an alan wrench. Turn to the right to raise the door, or turn to the left to lower the door.

You want to be sure and order all of the materials you will need to do the job at the same time that you order the replacement door. That way, when the new door comes in 2 to 4 weeks later, you will have everything ready to do the job. In addition to any trim needed, you are also going to need caulk, a roll of R-13 Insulation, liquid nails for the track, 4" deck screws, shims, dust masks, and safety glasses. Once the new door arrives, it will be time to take out the old door. That will be our topic in next week′s article.
