Finding an Installer for Your Panoramic Door
Option 1: Install the door yourself
While installing the Panoramic Door does not require a high level of technical expertise, it is important that the installation guidelines set out in our installation manual be strictly adhered to. If you or anyone in your family or company has basic construction skills, you may consider installing the door yourself. If not, we recommend you find an installer/contractor who is proficient in their trade.
Option 2: Ask friends or family
Often you will have a friend or family member who has had construction/contracting work done at their home or business. There is a good chance that they would know from personal experience if a contractor is skilled in their trade. This is a great place to start as they will be able to personally vouch for he quality of workmanship and professionalism of the installer/contractor.
Option 3: Check on Angie’s List
Angie’s list and similar sites are a great resource when looking for window/door installers and or contractors. All members on the site are rated by the users and is a great alternative if you do not have any personal recommendation from friends or family members.
Option 4: Contact a door/window installation company
In most cities there will be a company or companies that specialize in window and door installation. These companies are often the best in regards to warranty on work done.
If you choose to have a contractor install your door(s), be sure to check that his/her license is current. The warranty for your installation will be with your contractor so be sure to get a copy to the warranty in writing.
Thermal bowing is a common occurrence with aluminum doors that have a thermal break. This thermal break is key to energy efficiency as it provides a barrier between the outside aluminum that is exposed to exterior heat or cold, and the interior aluminum or wood that is not. The difference in temperature between the exterior and interior can cause one side of the door to grow or shrink resulting in a slight bowing of the door.
