Multiple Sliding Door Problems
(Pinellas Park, Florida)
I bought a house 3 years ago that turned out to be a pig with lipstick on it. The woman who flipped the house didn't bother to replace or fix the aluminum sliding glass patio door. I was wondering several things:
Can you can put a weather strip on the inner sliding door to keep dirt and insects out without removing or replacing the door?
The latch on the door broke and won't latch or lock. I found a new outside mounted door handle and mortis set that I hope is compatible but I can't afford it yet. It's a 3.93 surface mount set.
If the door needs to have the rollers adjusted, how do you do that?
The baseboard next to the left (non sliding door) is showing signs of water damage. I have a variety of caulk and sealants, including a cement type that I placed at the base of the door where there were cracks in the cement. Should I rip up the baseboard, see where an external leak is and patch it?
Bear in mind I'm disabled on a very fixed budget and can't afford to replace the whole thing so I'm trying to do little things that will make the door better. I want to thank you if you made it this far. Any help would be immensely appreciated.
