Prior to Order/Installation: Determining Door Handing and Configuration
Door handing and configuration refers to where a door’s handle is and how the door swings. We determine handings/configurations when you place your order, determining them from the exterior of your home/outside of a room. If you have any specific thoughts or concerns about how your doors will operate, please feel free to speak with us prior to ordering.
Getting Your Home Ready for Door Installation
Take Care of a Few Simple Matters and Your Door Installation by All-West Glass is a Breeze:
DURING YOUR INSTALLATION
Our services include the following:
Kick plate installation
Peep hole/new or existing lock hardware (pre-bored doors, excluding mortise-type hardware)
Fitting Your Door
If your new door is going into an opening sized differently than the new door, we provide custom trim work to create an exact fit. If custom trim work will be required for your installation, this cost will be included in your initial quote. Any new interior trim will need to be painted.
Existing storm doors will not typically be reinstalled after your new door is in place, because they are typically not in good condition. If, however, the existing storm door is in excellent shape and compatible with your new door, we can provide you with a labour estimate for reinstallation. Or, we’d be happy to install a brand new storm door, and we can help you choose a new storm door from our selection.
After Your Installation: Door Finishing
Steel doors, wood frames and trims, and fibreglass doors will all come coated with a factory-applied primer. To remain eligible for manufacturer warranties, we recommend that all of these parts be painted with two coats of quality exterior latex or enamel paint. If you plan to stain a textured fibreglass door, the manufacturer recommends the work be completed by someone familiar with this type of door.
Your home may need some touching up following installation, including minor work to interior or exterior paint, siding or stucco, and dust clean up.
