Thread: door leaks

    door leaks

    I have a 1984 Holiday Mansion that I just bought. The windows and door leaks. I got the windows stopped but the sliding glass door is damaged and needs replacement. The door size is 60 inches wide and 72 inches tall have looked everywhere and can't seem to find one any suggestions.

    Green Side Up!

    GSU No one else is answering and I don't have a good reply, not sure what is wrong with your doors, but will mention I have taken two of my doors to a good welding shop and they repaired them better than new.

    Welcome aboard.

    I am sure you could find a custom door manufacture.
    I googled it, and several popped up, even Pella.

    But I would look at having someone attempt a repair.

    What is wrong with the doors? New hardware is available at Lowes.
    The fries are cold so we gave you extra.

    door leaks

    The doors from what I can tell were broken into and the frame is damaged, the felt between the doors is gone, also they allowed the door to drag on the bottom frame which enlarged the track grove by the roller wheels. Thanks for the advise.

    I had my rollers go bad on my door and a local glass shop came out,removed the doors ,repaired the rollers and re-aligned the doors for 75$. it was money well spent. check your local shops.

    Sounds similar to my doors. If you decide to repair them be sure you take to a shop used to TIG welding thin aluminum. If they don't start talking about cleaning the aluminum first thing take it somewhere else.

    It'll be better if you take the services of the professional door repairer.
