Romaine Patio Doors October 26th, 2017 - 03:43:24
The patio wheel adjusting screws are located at either end of the bottom section of the door. Some patio doors have a blanking plug covering the adjustment hole remove the plug and use a torch to shine into the bottom section of the door to determine where the screw is located and what type of screw it is. There maybe two screws that are visible one is an adjustment screw and the other is a fixing screw that holds the patio frame together. Use a long screwdriver to turn the adjusting screw in a clockwise direction to raise the patio. Adjust both wheels the same and check if the patio is level by almost closing the door and noting the gap between the door and the frame. Adjust the wheels until the gap is even all the way down. You may need to move the door locking keeper on the frame after adjusting the wheels. If this didnt solve the problem you may need to replace the patio wheels.
There are two basic types of patio doors which include the hinged patio doors and the sliding or gliding patio doors. Hinged doors are normally available as French doors which come in a set of two doors. These normally open to the outside and may have a lot of glass incorporated into their overall construction thus allowing you a view of the outside. There are certain other hinged doors that come in the form of accordion doors and are therefore able to fold open. If you are living in regions with warmer climates you should consider investing in a good pair of accordion doors which also happen to be very space efficient. On the other hand the sliding patio doors are normally available in a set of two in which case one door slides past the other and in most cases these are entirely made out of glass.
While sliding folding or standard push-pull doors are part of style they are given much important because they also have a lot to do with space. Sliding and folding patio doors are more preferred since they can give you more house space. Not only that but a patio door that folds can also lead to a wide open patio that can make the sun shine in your home. Deciding on the type of opening for your door is based on your general preference; be informed though that there are many options to choose from.
Patio doors comprise an outer frame plus individual door frames. These can be made from wood (soft- and/or hard-wood) metal or alloys (usually aluminium) pvc (polyvinyl chloride a thermo-plastic polymer - the u stands for unplasticised) or a composite material which may comprise any of the foregoing materials plus grp (glass reinforced polymer). There is also a style known as frameless where the vertical sides of each door have no frames.
