Measuring instructions for patio sliding screen doors
Measuring instructions for patio sliding screen doors. The measuring instructions on this page provide you our customer, a typical way our installers measure for patio sliding screen doors when the old door is no longer available at the property. If you have an existing frame that is not bent, we recommend to provide the existing frame size width by height. Do not include wheels in the measurement (wheels are adjustable).
The most common widths are 36″ & 48″. The most variation measuring slider screen doors and the most critical measurement is the height! Furthermore refer to the instructions below for height measuring, while making sure to use the right tool for the job.
Also, always use a heavy duty measuring tape with a blade width of minimum 1 Inch. Typical Blade Material Steel, Case Type Closed, Graduations 1/16 In. Stanley lock 25 ft. “the old diehard contractors tape” would do just fine and the way I personally use and prefer a Stanley Fat Max 25 ft!! Since it works great for large window and door openings.
