The number 1 reason why your sliding glass door won′t side is because too much dirt and debris have clogged up the wheels and the track of your door panel. This is not a hard fix, but because most sliding glass doors are quite heavy, it is best if you have another person present to help you. The first step is to examine how your sliding glass door is fixed to the track. The majority of sliding glass doors have a strip that runs along the top of the frame that holds the doors in vertical alignment, positioning the wheels to fit neatly over the sliding track. To begin, let′s use a simple screwdriver to remove that strip at the top. Once the strip is removed, slowly tilt the door out of the frame, then remove it out of the frame all-together. Turn the door on its side and examine the wheels at the bottom of the door. Remember, some sliding glass doors can be upwards of 90 pounds, so either acquire some help or be very confident in your physical ability.
Several sizes of sliding doors are available and can be custom-fitted for your unique project needs. Before you obtain an estimate and place your order, you should measure the space of the area you need to cover. Measure closet openings both horizontally and vertically; measure horizontally across the top and bottom of the closet opening and vertically on each side of the opening.
May require a general contractor - Most times when installing a multi-slide door, it may require framing changes. Depending on where you live, if the change is made to a load bearing wall, you have to pull a permit and have an engineer sign off on the change. This will usually require a GC to handle the details for you. A simple French door or window installation can be done by a licensed window or door company. Cost - These doors can be quite expensive. Most time when I give a remodeling customer / homeowner an estimate on these doors, it usually becomes price prohibitive. They see a French door or sliding glass door at a home store for 800 dollars and figure these doors are three times as big, so they should be three times as much right? Wrong, you see standard size doors are made with stock sized tempered glass. Multi-slide doors are custom sized and the price grown exponentially when you go to custom sizes.
