My husband and I just installed a new patio door. We are very happy with the way it turned out. Everything looks great and has stayed level! Our problem is that it does not open and close very easily. It doesn't glide smoothly. Is this because the door is new? We have heard to try to spray silicone on the glider. Any other suggestions? Please let us know! Thanks so much.

Most of them have adjustments on the 2 edges, near the bottom of the door that slides. They adjust the door up or down slightly so it doesn't drag. You loosen a locking screw and then turn the adjusting screw inside a hole near the locking screw. Do this equally on both edges.
