I know it took my builder some time to install our patio door. I recently had 2 guys come out and do some work on my barn and it took them 4 hours to complete everything and I paid 160 total for their work.

I had a company quote me 3-4,000 to move a sliding door to another wall, so a simple replace should be nowhere near that much. When we arrived to do the instal the door was badly deformed and the glass had seperated from the frame due to the heat and weight of the glass. I would charge that much just to replace a 3-0 x 6-8 entry door without having to alter the opening.

Got a quote today for sliding or French patio doors – seemed astronomical to me. Cost includes nearly 1150 to enlarge the opening and put in a new lintel, 770 for the step (he suggested some of this could be done cheaper by a builder if we wanted to keep costs down, perhaps 700 for a cheaper builder to do the opening – could do the step ourselves come to that).
