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.

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.

The mirror gives the room double the amount of depth and creates the illusion of more space. It also creates the impression of light and makes the bathroom look a lot lighter naturally.

You should notice right away that the door is much easier to slide, and should require significantly less effort. If for any reason the door is still difficult to roll, it is likely one of the following reasons: either your wheels are completely burned out, or your sliding glass door is sitting too high on the track, and is thus hitting the top plate of the door frame. If your wheels are burned out, unfortunately you′ll have to call the manufacture of your sliding glass door and request new wheels. 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.

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.

You want to measure across the bottom, center, and top of the existing door frame to find the narrowest dimension. Start outside and measure at the point where the old door frame stops and the exterior material starts. That material can be stucco, siding, or brick. Measure across in the 3 places: bottom, center, and top. Record the smallest dimension. Then go inside and do the same thing. You want to measure where the frame ends and the drywall, plaster, or sheetrock begins. Take all six measurements, find the narrowest one, and deduct 3/4". That is the width of the new door. Now, when you measure the height, you can do it just on the outside. Measure the left, center, and right side from the ground where the bottom track sits, up to the top where the old frame ends and the exterior material begins. Take the narrowest dimension and deduct 1/2". That is your height of the new door. Then, determine which side the sliding panel should be on. The fixed panel is designated by the letter "O", and the slider is an "X". In most areas of the country, you call it out by looking at the door from outside and reading left to right. So, if you were outside looking at your door, and you want the sliding panel to close to the right wall, you would ask for an "OX". However, because i have recently discovered that not all parts of the country do it this way, my suggestion is to ask the dealer how they read the opening before placing your order.
