Jeld Wen Patio door

by Scott
(Bigfork, Mn)

The outside threshold of this new patio door has no rail on bottom nor channel on top to accept a screen door....The door is a left inward swinging with the right door "pinned" top and bottom, but capable of being opened also. I just want to screen the left side opening like a normal patio door. Do you sell a track/channel kit that would allow me to purchase a standard patio door screen? I'll probably never unpin the right side door so....Home depot has a screen that is mounted vertically from both sides and you pull the two sides together to meet in the middle...It just seems kind of hokey and the weather stripping to keep bugs at bay looks it's $400.00....Help!

Hi Scott;

I do have a kit to install a sliding screen door on an inswinging hinged patio door, see my French Door Screens Kit The kit comes with top track, lower track and screen door.

Check the instructions on the page to see if you have room at the top of the door for a top track. Also check to see if the door handle does not interfere with where the screen door will have to slide.

Installing the kit is not difficult, the toughest part is getting the bottom track in line with the top but if you can use a plumb line its really not a big issue. Happy to help you get the measurements right so you can get this door installed.
