Aluminum Slider Replacement

dottyinduncanAugust 10, 2010

We have an aluminum sliding door that has to be replaced. Unfortunately, my contractor tells me that there is not enough head room to install a wood door so it will have to be another aluminum one or perhaps vinyl. We just have 2 x 4 construction so it has to fit into this space. Can you point me in the right direction to start researching doors please? This is all new to me, so I don't know how to begin and what to watch for. The existing door is 8 ft. wide by 74 inches high.

Ger a new contractor. There are companies that make wood doors that size. Marvin is one to look at.

I think I will get a wood window person to come and look at the space. Thanks for the response.
