Brick Walls Won’t Stop This Sliding Glass Door Installation Project!

Sliding Glass Door InstallationSometimes when you’re completing home improvement projects, all of your work winds up running into a brick wall.

That was the case – literally! – when one of JR Carpentry & Tile’s clients decided to add a sliding glass door leading to the backyard of their home. In order to complete the sliding glass door installation, a giant hole had to be cut from the brick wall surrounding a window.

For many, this may be a daunting task. Not for the experts at JR Carpentry & Tile! We were more than capable of tackling all of the various steps required to complete this task.

First, the hole had to be cut. We opened up the bottom area underneath the window, as well as a bit of space up at the top. The steel lintel will be moved up a few courses of brick to accommodate the new sliding glass door. We also moved the interior header up to support the structure above.

In just a few simple steps, the door was installed and the homeowner will have quick and easy access to their backyard. 

Have a look at this video which shows some of the hard work cutting the new opening:
