RE: Patio door/Sliding door

Get some quotes from local contractors. It's more complicated than you think it is because it involves removing both interior and exterior wall cladding and creating a new header for support over the larger door. Then after installation, you have to reweatherproof the exterior properly and trim everything out attractively both inside and out.
