I've been to Lowes and am not convinced that the Therma Tru patio door is a good one...
I'm looking to buy a decent quality slider (vinyl or clad) and have FIL install. Where in the midwest can you find DIY sliding doors besides HD and Lowes, that are good quality?? Recommended brands?

I prefer Anderson----never had a problem with one of their doors----Not cheap but very trouble free.

You should not have any trouble finding a supplier.

For quality vinyl, you'll need to go to a building supply house like Allied, ABC or Richards. PlyGem/Great Lakes and Gorell are pretty nice. If you want clad, the Andersen's, Pella, and Weathershield are all pretty nice.

So you have Allied & ABC there.
I didn't think Allied was that big of a company.
We have one about 20 miles north.
ABC just bought out Bradco.
Bradco was huge.
I know they had locations along the East Coast and in California and I think in Texas (but I'm not sure about that).
Probably a bunch of other places that I'm not aware of.
