Sliding Door Replacement | Years of Experience

When it comes to home improvement, replacing sliding glass doors can be a daunting task. However, there may be a way to replace them without replacing the frame. By carefully inspecting the existing frame and ensuring it is structurally sound, homeowners can save both time and money.

Assessing the Condition

The first step in replacing a sliding glass door is to assess the frame's condition. Look for any signs of rot, damage, or deterioration. If the frame is in decent condition, it is possible to reuse it. Check the integrity of the frame by rapping on it with a hammer. If the sound is hollow or there's any give, the frame likely needs to be replaced.

Removal of Existing Door

If the frame is stable, the next step is to remove the existing door. Start by removing the lower track by inserting a putty knife or a flat-head screwdriver into the track's groove and prying it loose. Then, unscrew the rollers and lift the door off the frame.

Installation of New Door

Once the existing door is removed, it's time to install the new door. Start by attaching the lower track to the floor using a screwdriver. Make sure it is level and secure. Then, carefully position the new door onto the frame, aligning the rollers with the track. Secure the door by tightening the screws or bolts.

Upper Track Installation

Now, it's time to install the upper track. Measure the distance from the top of the door to the ceiling, and cut the upper track to fit. Secure it to the wall or ceiling using screws or brackets. Then, slide the door onto the upper track, ensuring it slides smoothly.

Proper Alignment and Adjustments

Before closing the door, make sure everything is properly aligned and the doors open and close smoothly. If necessary, make adjustments by loosening or tightening the track's screws.
