Trouble is, I have no idea where to start or how to even compare features on these doors. Aside from superior insulating qualities, all I'm really interested in is having a wooden frame that'll allow me to stain as I choose (oh yeah, and I want the sliding door on the INSIDE this time...sorry Pella).
Anyway, I'm leaning toward Andersen, for no other reason than name recognition, good warranty and having the type of door (wooden) that I'm looking for. I'm getting installed prices in the $12-1400 range here in the Cleveland OH area for a standard 6 ft. width. Decent price for this type of door?
Seems most doors these days are dual-pane with some inert gas in between for insulation...most of the differences seem to be in the framing material. Are there any specific specs or features I should be looking for?
Any help, tips or personal experiences are appreciated.
