It may become necessary to replace a sliding patio door if the glass is broken, the casing is damaged, or if the structure is leaking or letting in drafts. Otherwise, new patio doors are often installed at the same time as building a deck, by opening up an exterior wall.
Several steps are involved in this process, which is relatively simple but requires care and precision. Accurate measuring and adjusting are the keys to a successful installation.
A helper is also required for this job, as the doors are big and heavy and therefore difficult to handle alone.
