Adding Screen Door To Existing Enclosure (Pic)

mustangs81September 29, 2008

I have a 62' screened in lanai. There is 1 door to the outside and it is on one end. For convenience to access the grill-which is right outside the other end from where the door is-I was hoping that I could have another door installed. What you see in the picture is what the screen looks like the entire length i.e. horizontal bar/rail in the center. Is that doable?

Thank you for any thoughts that you have.

Thanks John.

I should have been more specific. I have a company that I will be contacting, I just wanted to be more informed before I make the call.

Sure it's doable. You may have to re-route electrical & plumbing thru the header, which of course needs to be added. Just don't expect the guy to come cut a hole & throw in a door, there's more to it than that.

The screen company came today; they gave me an estimate of $200 to install a screen door in the existing screen enclosure. He is basically "cutting a hole & throwing a door in" as there isn't any electrical or plumbing to complicate the installation. I will post a picture when all is completed.

Thanks for the input.
