Patio Doors

I have a standard 6 foot sliding door on my home. In witter with a strong wind,I notice a little air coming in along the top and st the joint where the sliding door overlaps the stationary part. There is also a piece of felt on the bottom inside edge of the sliding part about 1 inch wide that I guess acts like a sweep to seal aling the track. This piece of felt freezes in the winter making it very difficult to open the door. Are there any weatherstripping kits sold to redo sliding doors? Would anyone have advice how I might correct this problem? Thanks....

All three are good brands. With that much of a difference though, I'd check to see that it is a comparable model. It may be the "builder's special" and lack some features or construction details.

When I replaced my front door from one from HD I found that ordering a door would incur full price but if it were in stock at that store, the price was generally much lower. I had to check out 5 stores before I found the model I wanted in stock but saved 30% in the process.

$1000 less? What are the high and low bids?

Try to figure out who manufacturered it and contact them for replacement. Otherwise visit Lowes and see if any of their strips might do the job. On a regular door, I've found that weatherstripping sold by Lowes is sometimes better than the original.

a 1/2" gap at bottom of door because they didn't stay on the track properly. The cure was to put in a new track, which screws down right over the old track. I used duct tape in winter until hubby got around to fixing it. A screw had rusted out in the frame of one slider, and replacing that made it square again.
Elec. usage down about 30% from year before, but still a lot more costly. We have two triple panels, with slider in center panel. Ideally would get new one$.
