    So I'm trying to get a couch into our condo and it will not fit through the front door. The only plausible way would be to get it through the sliding patio door. Removing the sliding door was very simple but the fixed panel doesn't seem to want to move. It had two plastic brackets on the top...

This is a master bath in an industrial loft condo. When trying to figure out the best door solution that wouldn't cause the...

    (PHOTOS ATTACHED) -- Hi everyone... I had a repair man working in my utility closet and he removed the sliding wood door from its track to gain full access. In the process, I guess he either broke or lost the piece that this dowel goes into in the top track to slide back and forth. The other...

    Can some one help me diagnose water leak under the sliding door frame when it rains? I replaced 2 sliding patio doors and 5 windows with retrofit vinyl SI 5000 series in 2005.

    We purchased our house mid last year and the previous owners had only owned the house for a little under 2 years, so they couldn't help. Sometime around 2011 - 2012, the owners of our house had siding put on and the sunroom and windows re-done all over the house. One of the handles is loose...

    I'm replacing an old wooden patio sliding door. The opening is about 72" by 80". I've been told be an installer that some work would have to be done to make the opening smaller for a new vinyl replacement door. I can get the Jeld-Wen for $300, which seems great. Here are a couple options...

    I've got a screen door out to my patio with a broken wheel and I can't remove the door to replace the wheel because the wheel is stuck (won't lower) so I can't remove it from the frame. I've included a photo — I was able to pull out the one side because that wheel is fine, but the other side...

    Hi all, Had a contractor via Lowes's (yeah, I know...) install a sliding door and I noticed a decent gap at the interior bottom moulding over the existing tile (see pic). I am not sure if/what they should have done (caulk look ok over the tile?) since it may be due to the irregular tile and...
  15. Building & Construction
    I have a large wooden sliding door on our bedroom from a 2003 renovation (before we bought it), and the sliding door sill has some sill rot near the outside corner of the stationary panel. I'm puzzled at what may have caused this, and I want to avoid it recurring after I repair/replace it. The...

    I was a landlord for the first time this past year, and I had a couple of surprises when I visited the place to say goodbye to my tenant. The largest being that the sliding glass door barely opened and when it did it would come off the track. I did a little research online, and the general...
