I will soon be replacing my sliders and I need some information. I plan on doing this myself. I've read the instructions and it seems pretty straightforward. Anything I need to look out for?

Also, what should I buy. I got a quote from my local hardware store for $1500 for Andersons. I went to ***** and saw a basic slider for $300. I don't want crap, but I don't want to break the bank. Does anyone sell them online? Any advice would help.

Thanks in advance.

I installed two Atrium french doors that i got from Home Depot and I as well as some of my contractor friends have been very impressed with the overall quality of them. I believe that you can get them in a slider as well that would probably be easier to install than a true french door. Anderson are good doors however i think they are somewhat over priced. I do not believe that they come together, I think you need to install the frame and doors seperately but have been told not too difficult. Depending on the size door, $1500 for an Anderson is not too far out of line price wise. Good Luck !
