Sliding patio doors are a good solution in spaces that simply cannot accommodate a full swinging door such as a balcony or sunroom.
All Milgard patio doors are custom made to fit your existing opening so you don’t need to worry about finding an existing size to fit. The first thing you would do is measure your entrance space. Make sure you assess the condition of the opening. Look for structural or weather issues on the surrounding wall space. It is important to complete any needed repairs before proceeding with the project.
Replacement patio doors are installed using a block frame or z-bar, which does not require access to exposed studs. This means there is less removal of exterior materials such as siding and trim.
In a replacement project, the installer can remove the entire frame of the old patio door or leave in the jambs and cut out the sill. If you are not sure about your options, talk with your project supervisor or get in touch with a local Milgard dealer.
