I would like to replace some sliding doors including a ground floor master bedroom. What would be the best quality door; Andersen, Pella, or something else? What would be most secure?

Marvin or Kolbe are two of the best residential sliding door system available. Andersen would be ok to decent and Pella would be at the very bottom of my list.

RE: Best sliding door replacement?

I was at a friends house this weekend commenting on a slider we put in over 25 yrs ago. It is a 6'w Andersen vinyl clad. It still looks pretty dam good and functions perfectly. I distinctly remember, myself and a few other friends were floored that he paid $1200 back then. You get what you pay for.
This door has seen a lot of use, it functions as the back door to a deck and pool.
