Sliding Glass Door


Have 2 sliding glass door on lakeside of house.
Pella installed in 94 and 9 months a year probably open , shut 6-7 times a day. Been a great door but showing it's age.

Anderson is a piece of sheet, seldom used and will replace with window.

This pella has been great. What other brands would you recommend?

Re: Sliding Glass Door


What line of Andersen? The 400 series on up are my favorite sliders and French doors.

Re: Sliding Glass Door


I like Anderson. Never cared for the Narrowline but the permashield are better and the 400 are very nice.

I really love that you can swap out a sash or a panel decades old if you want

The PS are ok...have had a few issues with that line. The A-series are also fantastic!

Re: Sliding Glass Door


Upper end Andersens are hard to beat. They just feel so nice when you open them.
