If you want a traditional French door look....the Andersen Frenchwood ($1575 list w/ std hardware, Hi perf glass and no screen) is a great door. Their Narrowline series ($1150 list w/std hdwr, dual pane glass and no screen) has the more modern look with a larger glass area and narrower frame, but uses the same rollers, latch, and sill design. These are all list prices ...you will prob see them about 15% less at a yard or supply house. Fancier hardware might run $100, the screen maybe $125..LowE on the Narrowline is a std option...think its only about $50? These are retail as I remember them. Andersen also has a transferable non-prorated warranty...dunno about the others. Personally I don't like the interior screen of a Pella, but I have cats..they'd shred it if it was available to them year round. Also, I just don't like the look of Pella's hardware. Don't know about their sill design or rollers. Jeld-Wen doors are ok, but I think their sill design, screen, and rollers are not as sturdy as some others. Since they are just a bit cheaper than Andersen normally, I'd go with the Andersens. No experience with Marvin. Supposed to be quality products, but I've heard they are pretty pricey. Grille options can really run up the price of a door. And be sure to check same brand pricing at more than one place..if possible. Some places will get larger discounts from the manufacturer, based on volume of sales and market competition. I put in an Andersen slider at my last house..and Frenchwood swing doors here....I'd buy them again...even if I had to pay full price..which I didn't.
Exactly what I needed to know. Thanks! The architect didn't specify the garage door jamb for weatherstripping. One one side of both doors there's an existing 6x6 (the carport is a pole barn-type construction), but not on the other. Florida requires 2x6 buildout framing on the inside of the Miami-Dade garage door openings, but that will be handled by the installer. I assume that's where the weatherstripping will attach, but I'll check.
So for swing doors the rough opening should be 2-1/2 wider? I'm looking at a door on the internet that specifies 38 rough opening for a 36 door. Do you recommend the extra half inch?
