need help removing swing patio door without damaging it. Most of it is the clad part. I think it is Andersen Windows by the lock info. Newer door glass has Andersen logo but not this one.

Re: patio door removal


It surely has a nailing fin. The siding and j-channel would all need to come off to remove the nails from the nail fin.

The trim would come off on the inside. Carefully run a drywall saw around the rough opening to look for nails or screws through the jamb. Cut them with a Sawzall and short metal blade.

Then there may be sealant under the threshold. As you tip the door down from the outside, you would carefully pry under the door. (You should remove any long screws in the sill first).

You should also remove hinge screws and the operating panel.

Re: patio door removal


You need to remove the whole thing?

If so, like @XSleeper said, pull the trim, cut through the nails, pull some of the hinge screws and see which ones go into the RO, and pull the door.

Yes the whole thing. If i understand correctly. remove the door. remove trim. cut around the frame and stud. What about the other stationary door? removing the whole frame with attached door wood be heavy.

Question: are the fin for mounting purposes or water protection? Maybe both?

Re: patio door removal


Yes, both.

The fixed panel does not come out on a hinged unit. It will come out with the frame. If it's the passive side of a double door (if it has hinges) it has side bolts that hold it shut.
