Unless you have ordered a pre-primed door, you will have to apply a stain-blocking primer – ideally two coats – to provide a base for the rest of your paint work. Pay special attention to the top and bottom of the door, which are particularly vulnerable to water penetration. Apply primer equally all over on both sides, not forgetting the cut-out holes for hardware. This will seal the timber and keep incoming moisture to a minimum, preventing swelling (which can make the door stick on the frame). Conversely, it will also help stop the door from drying out and shrinking in hot weather.
Hurricane impact glass door inserts are extra strong to achieve the hurricane impact rating for approved glass doors. They also have to be able to hold the extra weight of the impact glass. The similarity is the overall thickness of the glass at 1”. The frames are screwed together with plugs to cover the screw holes. Additionally they also have factory applied aggressive glue holding the glass to the frame and the frame to the door.

Composite doors are more expensive than most timber doors initially but have the advantage of requiring no finishing or maintenance, saving time and money in the long run. You will also need to factor in the cost of door furniture. This can vary hugely, from around £10 for a pair of simple chrome-effect zinc handles to more than £100 for a superior set made of brass or polished nickel. You may find that a handle kit, comprising handles, hinges, fixing screws and a latch, is the most convenient solution.
Sliding doors are unique devices that a lot of people love having in their houses, but you might not realise how efficient and cheap they are to use. If you are planning on making any changes to the doors in your house, you might want to consider ones that are easier to maintain over the years.
If you have the extra space and do not mind going out into the weather to get to the house choose a detached garage. The extra space between the house and garage can be used for a patio or even a kitchen garden. From the garage to the home you could also build a nice aesthetically walkway. You will also need to decide if you want a one or two car garage and if you need extra room for storage. If you choose a simple one-car garage, a door company states that you will need a basic space of 12 feet by 24 feet. If you choose a two-car garage you will need to add another 9 feet by 18 feet of space for that extra car. You will need this much space so you can open the doors without scratching or damaging the car doors.
