I am writing for the first time door installer upgrading an older house.
I replaced a 1972 vintage aluminium sliding glass door with this vinyl double glazed window.
The wall is conventional studs with T-113 siding over roofing felt. The old trim was 1/2 x 3 redwood painted with lead bearing paint.
The job took five "home owner on vacation days", Three days prep, a half day to install the new window and one and a half days doing trim and sealing the surrounding sealing.
I tested for lead paint before starting work. Then you can plan to minimize the hazards.
The rough opening you prepare needs to be perfect with no hanging flaps of roofing felt or lips of siding. The hardest cut is getting the top edge of the opening straight. A six foot level paid for itself with this window job.
The new high performance sliding glass door means you must pay attention to sealing the door and the wall around it against wind driven rain. During a storm, houses often have negative internal air pressure. In your work, you want to seal every pinhole.
I used a sheet metal z-bar at the top of the opening. I wound up doing a sketch of the wall assembly to understand the inside of the z bar goes behind the siding and behind the roofing paper under the siding.
Note the order of work: You start at the bottom of the door opening and work up. As you go, each upper layer overlaps the lower layer like roof shingles.
For sealant, Lexel sealant appears equivalent to the Jeld-Wen sealant sold at Home Depot. I used 2 1/2 tubes of sealant.
Once the opening is prepared, installing the door was a three man job that took 3 minutes.
