I have a question for all of you builders out there. The condo that my Mother is renting in CT, the owner, had a new sliding glass doors recently installed. When I visited her this past summer I saw that they had the sliding door was on the outside and the stationary door was on the inside. Seems to me that all of the doors that I saw, you could put a bar on the flood of the frame a block anyone trying to open the door from the outside.
She had one of the installers back in and he said that was the way they are installing them now. Seems to me that if they got a good ice storm she would not be able to open the slider because the ice would be in the track, on the other side of the heated space.
Anyone else heard of this way to install sliders?
