replacing slider screen door with hinged door
We have an Andersen french door looking slider. Although both sections look alike only one moves and has its own slider screen door. The other section rests against the sill and head jamb and is stationary. Being between the kitchen dining area and deck it gets a lot of warm weather traffic.
Manually closing the screen door gets to be annoying, especially when your hands are full. Has anyone ever installed a conventional hinged door to replace a sliding screen door? This is a light door with no provisions for installing a heavy storm window in it, so weight would would not be an issue. The stationary section looks more than robust enough to hold a screen door and has about a 6" wide stile to attach the hinge side to.
Thanks for your input, Jim
