My husband and I are in the midst of a home addition/remodel and are stuck
when it comes to doors. Our contractor is really pushing Anderson doors for
our main living room slider and master bedroom french doors...but we've seen
some nice ones by Milgard for considerably less. We live in southern
California where the weather is mild...Any suggestions folks?
As always ask about quality , the best doors are have mortice and tenon
,joints, a slightly less quality joint would be double doweled , The glass
should be tempered ,which is probably required by local code the wood grain
should be pretty straight so that warping is reduced .
Apart from the above a door is a door check out the quality and then go for
the lowest price and don't pay for a company name tag....mjh
But do pay for glass warranty. Anderson guarantees their glass for 20
years. I'm sure Pella does the same. BOth are likely to be around. Lots
of people end up with leaky double pane glass and no one to complain to.
By the way, make sure the door is installed per manufactuerer instructions.
Pella and Anderson have them online so you can see what is involved before
you buy a door. A poorly installed door is worthless.
