Installation of Exterior Doors and Patio Doors
The proper installation of a door, whether a front door or a patio door, is essential. A faulty installation can lead to premature wear and tear on the components, reduce the efficiency of your heating and air conditioning, and shorten the life of any product, regardless of its quality. This is why you should entrust the installation of all your doors and windows to professionals. A properly installed door is level, square and plumb. As a result of these adjustments, the door will be supported evenly on its frame, will close easily and won’t be prone to opening by itself.
Turnkey installation by Portes et Fenêtres Verdun
At Portes et Fenêtres Verdun, installation is part of our turnkey service. When you purchase your doors and windows from us, we will send a team of qualified technicians, who will install your products correctly the first time. In the end, little details and good planning make all the difference in the world. For example, in order to facilitate the work, we let clients know ahead of time that they need to remove any accumulated snow or other obstacles to ensure clear access to the openings where each product will be installed. Certain extra-large patio doors need to have the frame mounted on-site, so it’s important to provide as much space as possible to allow the team to perform the necessary maneuvers.
The basics of the installation process
- The old door is removed.
- The underlying structure is carefully inspected, and any wood that’s fragile or that exhibits signs of mold is replaced to provide a stable installation environment.
- The hardware is checked and adjusted so you can enjoy the full benefits of your new door and all its features for many years to come.
- The contour of the door is insulated with urethane and weather-stripping is applied on the outside to ensure that the product is airtight.
- Finishing work is performed on the inside to attractively integrate the door into the surrounding room.
