Open Wall to Add A French Door

Two Minute Tips ... Remove Brick-Install Patio Door

Creating Access to a deck or patio is a way to enhance the usability and enjoyment of your yard. Why walk around the house or through the garage to serve food or get to the grill, when you can improve traffic flow by installing a door direct to the deck. Brick or masonary walls are the most complicated type of wall to install a new doorway, but if you already have a twin window in the wall, the process is greatly simplified because there is an existing header already in place. If you have enough ceiling height in the room, you can install a new header for projects that require one. Once you have the technical plan figured out, the only thing left to decide is whether you want a swinging door or a sliding door. Then pick the decorative features you would like…colors, grids or grilles, hardware etc. With a project like this, you will be thrilled with your newly functional home!
