Anderson 400 series trim question


First off I would like to say hi and I am glad that I found this site as it seems to be very helpful. I have just installed a French patio door with I swing doors with a transom. I also got the exterior trim kit with a cornice. I also have the double sliding screen doors instead of the hinged doors. So the question is with these options is it possible to use the trim kit?

It seems because the screen door tracks stick out that the trim kit will not properly fit.

Yes where the transom and door head meet. Because of the screen tracks it pushes out the face of the door therefore not allowing the exterior trim to work the way it was designed which was to cover about 1/8 of the face. I'm going to give them a call to make sure that modifying the trim is what I am supposed to do. It looks pretty straight forward but I want to make sure.

Ok sorry that I was never able to post pics but I got the answer that I was after and that was if you are using the extension jams for you screens then you will have to modify you trim kit. Not a big deal at all as all that is involved it cutting of the rabbit or the portion that was meant to overlap the face of the door.
