If you’re interested in getting a replacement door, you may want to know just how long it’ll take to fit your new patio door. However, there’s no specific answer to this question as there are different types of patio doors with all having unique installation processes as well as varying completion times. Generally, fitting patio doors will normally take within a range of 10 days to 21 days, except in situations whereby you have specific and non standard requirements. The time range provided represents the total duration starting from ordering the patio door till the installation is completed and this also varies from style to style.
If you want to get a professional double glazing surveyor, he will assess you property while also making sure the right and accurate measurements are taken and also plan out the installation. In order to avoid any unnecessary delays, this is a very crucial step as the surveyor will work to make sure any potential problems is identified early on. Once done, you can then wait a couple of days for the door to be manufactured and then fitted, depending on the door style and finish.
The time to completion varies depending on the complexity of the design. Patio doors may take about 14 days to 21 days with bifold patio doors being the most complicated and time consuming. This is due to the fact that they take longer time to manufacture and when you factor in the possible duration of the installation, you can expect a total duration between the range of 6 weeks to 8 weeks.
In addition, there are also some other factors that can affect the time it takes to install patio doors. These includes the need for a higher energy rating, upgraded security fittings, door hardware with custom finish and other special requirements that are beyond the standards.
