Milgard French Doors – Installing French doors works well in interior spaces that need more light. These glass doors add elegance and make both adjacent rooms appear more spacious. French doors work well on a wall that surrounds a dining area, home office, family room or kitchen. Plan renovations around the view, but you do not want to place Milgard French Doors where children’s toys will appear from a dining area.
Check the wall area for any wiring or plumbing inside the wall. Calculate the steps to recycle wires, pipes or sewers before the project. Release a plot to mark each side of the door space on the plaster. Rating plaster with a plaster knife to open the wall space. Cut the bottom plate with a circular saw to make it even with the floor, allowing room for the door unit to sit on floor level.
Open the plaster at the top of the door frame to allow three extra inches of width for a header. Install your head and support with occasional support before installing a jack. Install them to reach from the headline to the floor, placing a jack stud on each side of the new opening.
Cut the door frame material to fit double door space. Cut wood shims to fit sides, top and bottom of the door space, using shims to adjust the door unit. Fit the metal bracket with a generous flange around the door device to install the device much easier. Cover the exposed wall surfaces that surround the Milgard French Doors unit with plaster before painting or staining the door unit.
