Custom Sliding Patio Screen Doors
Making high-quality replacement sliding screen doors is one of the most common jobs we do…. And because of that, we are darn good at it!
In order to ensure your new screen door slides as smoothly as possible and doesn’t fall off the tracks, we perform a free, in-home estimate and take measurements directly off of your sliding glass door. When you place your order, we custom make each screen door one at a time in order to ensure your new sliding screen door slides smoothly and doesn’t fall off the track.
In addition, our sliding patio screen doors don’t have ANY PLASTIC parts! Sure, we could skimp like everyone else, but we feel it’s worth paying a few bucks more for a great quality screen door that is built to last! No plastic handle, no plastic wheels, no plastic locking mechanism. Only 100% metal parts here!
To see how AtoZ’s custom sliding screen doors compare to what you’ll find elsewhere, read on!
Because builders are always looking to cut costs, most homes are built with the cheapest quality sliding screen door they can get away with! The typical tract home sliding screen door life expectancy is only 5-8 years before the plastic wheels fail, or the plastic handle breaks!
Plastic handles and wheels fall apart fast!
And this doesn’t include the folks whose sliding screen door WAS perfectly fine…until a pet, a child, or a drunk party guest destroyed it! Can you say “Job Security” for AtoZ?!
All kidding aside, making new sliding screen doors is one of the most common jobs we do…. And we’re VERY good at it! Custom Sizes or extra tall sliding patio screen doors are no problem, because every door we build is custom-made to fit your door perfectly!
If you try to put an end to your sliding screen door sorrows by heading down to the local hardware store, you may be surprised to discover that you won’t find any patio screen doors that will work properly on your door! Oh sure, they have cheap Chinese-made “one-size-fits-all” (i.e., “one-size-fits-NONE”) screen doors with plastic wheels and handles and flimsy roll form framing, but they won’t work! Either they’ll be too tall to fit, or too short and will fall off every time you try to open it! And if you live in a home with one of those really tall sliding glass doors, forget it!
So what’s the solution? A new, custom-made sliding screen door by AtoZ Window Screens is the fastest, least expensive, easiest way to enjoy a bug-free-breeze once again!
How do our sliding screen doors compare?
First, we use a heavy-duty extruded aluminum frame unlike most cheap screen doors which are constructed using paper-thin roll form pot-metal!
Just so you understand, a “roll form” screen door frame is made by feeding a roll of thin gauge steel or aluminum sheet metal through a long machine in order to bend and crimp the flat piece of sheet metal into a boxed frame. In order to withstand being bent into this form, however, the sheet metal must be thin, soft, and malleable…qualities you DON’T want when you need a durable and tough sliding screen door!
Extrusion, on the other hand, is a far superior manufacturing process! With extrusion, an ingot of solid aluminum is heated to a molten hot semi-solid form, and then hydraulically pressed out of a die to form a thick-walled, one-piece welded screen frame with a much higher tensile strength and stiffness. If you can remember the Play-Doh fun factory, squeezing Play-Doh through variously shaped dies, then you’ll understand extrusion. All of AtoZ’s sliding screen doors are custom-made using extruded aluminum framing for durability and stiffness.
In addition, many folks are delighted to discover that our sliding screen doors have NO PLASTIC PARTS! You read that right! The top and bottom wheels on our doors are smooth-rolling metal wheels that will provide years of silky sliding trouble-free service! There’s nothing more frustrating than fighting with a sliding screen door that won’t slide properly because of broken plastic wheels!
In addition, the 4 corners holding the frame together are also heavy duty cast metal, not plastic! Because weak plastic corners will easily flex and break in short order, AtoZ refuses to use them.
And of course, you’ll likely say AtoZ’s got a “handle” on good quality when you notice that our sliding screen door handles and locking mechanisms are also…you guessed it, METAL! No plastic parts to get brittle in the sun’s harsh UV rays! No plastic lock parts to easily break!
Cheap Plastic Handles, Corners and Wheels are common in most Sliding Screen Doors. Plastic deteriorates quickly in the direct sun and hot summer conditions!
Each Sliding Screen Door CUSTOM-MADE to fit perfectly!
Because sliding screen doors must be made to very specific tolerances in order to work properly, one of our professional screen technicians will take precise measurements directly from your sliding glass door. In order to guarantee a proper fit, we can’t take our measurements from the old screen door or customers’ measurements.
