Just found out a friend of mine is taking out their patio door on their 1968 rambler. This is a good thing, the existing door was installed backwards (the other houses in that neighborhood I have worked on, are not that way, so I'm guessing that it was a landlord remodel).
So I get this email, the HO is sold on a set of inswing patio doors with internal blinds. Then I find out that they are from Lowe's (who appear to be the sole vendor for Reliabilt). For the quoted $499 price, I'm guessing that there's no hardware and no trim for that price, either.
I know why I did not get the work, I was figuring around $2k for the door hardware and trim, and around 2 people for 4 hours or so (will likely need a custom threshold--carpet is significantly higher than the threshold of the existing patio door).
Any stories out there (good or bad) on the Reliabilts? Maybe it will go just fine--but I'd like to know what to expect if I wind up having to fix this.
