We have an old leaky sliding glass door that we need to replace. Does anyone have a recommendation for a brand/manufacturer? I was hoping to get a good quality insulated door, but I have heard some can be quite expensive. Thanks!
All sliding doors and windows eventually leak air or water. In doors and windows "you get what you pay for". If you insist on a slider try to stay with a quality brand-- i.e. Pella, Peachtree, Anderson, etc.
I would stay away from ANDERSEN if I were you. We have both ANDERSEN and PELLA sliders in our home. The Pella works beautifully. The ANDERSEN slider will not slide without a fight. ANDERSEN's 'gal on the phone' says that they are only interested in warrantying "defective glass" That's not what their warranty says but there isn't anything we can do about it. Do yourself a favor; stay away from ANDERSEN products.
Avoid ANDERSEN sliders at all costs. We have one which will not slide without a fight. ANDERSEN says "sorry about that." They are only interested in warrantying "defective glass." That isn't what their warranty says but we can't do anything about it. Do yourself a favor; don't buy an ANDERSEN slider.
