Last week I explained how to measure your current sliding glass door so you can order the vinyl replacement door. This impressive division. Normally, you're going to have to use a pry bar to loosen the fixed panel just before it will slide out of the side jamb. As soon as the fixed panel is out, removal of the sliding panel is typically less complicated. Just lift up and swing the bottom away from the track, then get rid of the panel. Occasionally the bottom rollers will avoid the bottom from swinging out of the track. If that is the case, you will need to have to uncover the roller adjustment hole in the bottom corners of the sliding panel. Put a screwdriver into this hole and turn the screw counterclockwise to bring the roller as far up into the bottom of the sliding panel as feasible. This really should enable the slider to come out. Now, you want to get rid of all the screws from the side jambs, leading header, and bottom track. Then, take a pry bar and get it beneath the bottom track about in the center. Pry up till the track is separated from the floor. The next step will rely on whether or not your old frame is nailed to the property frame, or basically screwed in. If it is screwed in, then the frame really should now be loose in the opening, because you removed all of the screws. You just want to eliminate whatever inside trim there might be about the door frame. This sort of frame must come out. If your door is nailed to the residence frame, you will have to do a bit more operate. Use a hacksaw to cut the track in half, around in the center. Start with either half and raise the cut piece up towards the side jamb till the the track piece separates from the side jamb. Do the exact same point to the other half. So, now you have to eliminate the side jambs. You want to do this with out damaging the exterior material that surrounds the door frame. Take a heavy chisel and pound it into the crack among the frame and exterior material, whether it really is stucco, siding, and so on. Start at the bottom six inches very first. What you are trying to do is pull the nail fin away from the nails holding it in place. So, when the chisel is pounded by way of the metal frame, pry away from the side wall. The heavier and longer the chisel, the a lot more leverage you will have. You will hear the frame "pop" totally free of the nail. There will be several nails holding every single jamb in spot, so you want to commence at the bottom and perform your way to the top rated corner. After you get the bottom third loose, numerous times you can grab the jamb with both hands and pull the rest of the nails totally free as you go up. When you get to the leading corner, work the jamb totally free. Do each jambs, then do the best. Often the top rated has no nails, or just 1 in the center, so it will come down pretty effortlessly. Be confident to put on safety glasses and a dust mask when undertaking this job, especially when getting rid of the best header. At this point you are ready to install the new door. The installation process is slightly different, depending on regardless of whether you happen to be putting in a retrofit style frame or a replacement frame. We will discuss both procedures subsequent week.
