Build or buy a sliding screen door

Am I correct in thinking that all screen doors that slide are different sizes. Local place will come out measure fab and install a new screen door for 300 dollars. Bigbox, maybe 100 bucks but those doors are real cheap the present door is destroyed. If I build my own door, How much smaller does the door have to be from the rough opening?

Really depends on where you go, what options are available to you.
Here I can go to a local mom and pop shop that has been around forever, A screen door made for a sliding glass door, I provide measurements. Is $80.

Screen security doors are of high importance to day. Crimes are increasing on a large scale and the screen doors are really the best way to protect your home from the criminal and other anti social elements. Besides, they also prevent your home from having a jail like appearance. The security doors come in many colors and trends and they really give your home a wow appearance.
