Replacement Patio Door

Posted by mav3481 (My Page) on

Hello all,

I've read a bunch on the website and finally decided to join.

First of all, some basic information:
Location: St. Louis, MO - Zone 3/4
Home: 1 Story Ranch with 6 windows and 2 on Garage.
Patio Doors: 1 from Dining/Living room to Deck and 1 from Master BR to Deck - Both sliding glass doors.

I've purchased 4 replacement Gorell 5300 Windows to have installed before 12/31 (2 DH Triple Pane and 2 Slider Triple Pane). I hadn't read a poor review on these windows other than there was a manufacturing problem at one point that has since been resolved.

I've got two other windows in a dining room that will need to be replaced but that will not happen right now as finances are not in place to do that. I will probably stick with the same windows for those since I already have 4 that will be Gorell 5300 series.

I need to get some recommendations for replacement doors for my Sliding Patio doors. I *hate* sliding glass doors. I have plenty of room in my Dining/Living area for a double in-swing French Door. I would only prefer a right hand swinging door in my bedroom. Any idea what brands I should look for?

Also, anyone have an estimated price for this?

The best French door on the market is made by Provia IMO. They offer both steel and fiberglass. I just ordered 2 Provia Entry Doors and a storm door for my own house. They aren't cheap but quality never is.

RE: Replacement Patio Door

That's funny that you said that skydawggy. The company I am using to put in my windows (Amazing Siding and Windows of STL) also installs the Provia windows. He said it would be smart to budget about $4k (probably less) per opening to have the doors installed..etc.


RE: Replacement Patio Door

Depending on what options you select, that sounds like it's in the ballpark.
