What is a Window-to-Door Conversion?

Sounds wild, right? Window-to-door conversion involves converting a regular window opening into a functional door opening. It’s an innovative way to create easier access to your outdoor space, such as a patio or garden, directly from a room. This process not only increases the functionality of your living space but also adds an aesthetic touch to your home’s exterior facade.

How Do I Know If It Makes Sense For Me To Convert Window to Door?

Great question, not every family and home is the right candidate to convert window to door. Ask yourself a few questions:

  • Does it make sense financially? It’s one of the pricier projects we offer.
  • Is there electrical or plumbing in the wall where I want to convert window to door? This requires bringing in specialists besides ourself, which can dramatically increase the required investment.
  • Will it benefit my home and family? At the end of the day, you obviously have free will to do whatever you want to your home, but this is a larger project, make sure you’re truly committed to the change it’s going to make to the functionality of your home.

Definition and Overview of the Process

It’s a pretty simple concept. In a window to door conversion, the existing window opening is carefully expanded and modified to accommodate a new door. It involves several steps, including assessment of the space, design, sometimes obtaining permits, installation, and finishing touches. This process requires careful planning to ensure that structural integrity is maintained and all electrical wiring or plumbing in the area is properly managed.

Benefits of Converting an Existing Window Opening to a New Patio Door

The benefits really could be considered endless, depending on how you look at it! Converting your existing window to a new patio door can revolutionize the way you interact with your living space. It allows for more natural light, improved ventilation, and easier access to outdoor areas, enhancing the overall functionality and aesthetic appeal of your home.

More Air Flow

Who doesn’t love beautiful weather? A new patio door inside your home where a window once was can significantly increase air circulation. This is especially beneficial in rooms like the kitchen or dining room, where increased airflow give you the most comfort.

More Accessibility

Ease of access is a treat for everyone. Transforming a window into a door provides easier access to your garden, patio, or backyard. It’s perfect for homeowners who enjoy outdoor living or entertaining guests, offering a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces.

Preparing the Window Opening for Conversion

We’re not window installers, but we can sure take them out! Preparation of the window opening involves careful planning and execution to accommodate the new door. This involves removing the window and the wall space around it with cut outs.

Any required structural modifications, including framing, are done with precision to support your new door securely. Any new studs and other structural changes will be handled at this time. This is why we pay the utmost attention to things like if the area is on a load bearing wall.

We bring in experts to address any electrical and plumbing concerns that may arise during the conversion process, ensuring a safe and functional outcome.

Installing the New Door

Our good installers will then proceed with the door installation, ensuring a perfect fit and seamless operation.

Finishing Touches and External Facade Restoration

After installation, we apply the finishing touches, including restoring any affected external facade, such as missing siding, brick, or painting.

A final inspection is conducted to ensure the highest quality standards are met, guaranteeing your satisfaction with the new door. Our goal is to leave you with the cleanest working site you’ve ever seen.

Assessment and Consultation

window-to-large-french-door-conversion-light-red-brickswindow-to-door-converted-patio-example

The first step to a perfect project is a full exploration into the project. A project consultant starts by assessing whether your desired window to door conversion is feasible and beneficial for your home. We consider many components, including space availability, structural requirements, and aesthetic alignment with your house’s design.

Is the Area Suitable to Convert Your Window To A Door?

Not every area on every wall is right for this type of project, and there are several risks that may arise with this type of project, so we evaluate if the existing window’s location is suitable for a door. Factors like load-bearing walls, remaining wall space, if it’s a bay window, and potential complications with electrical wiring or plumbing are thoroughly examined.

Is There Electrical or Plumbing in the Area?

We specialize in only doors, which means we don’t do electrical or plumbing ourselves, so we assess for potentially compromising electrical work, or plumbing work, in the area. If electrical components or pipes are present, our experienced contractor will bring in electrical and plumbing specialists to make sure it’s all handled with the utmost safety and precision, ensuring the project makes sense both functionally and safely.

Is There Structural Work That Needs To Be Done?

The structure of your home is of the utmost importance, so structural integrity is our top priority. We evaluate the need for additional support, like another weight carrying header or king studs, to ensure that creating a bigger opening for your new door does not compromise the building’s structural soundness.

Frequently Asked Questions About Window To Door Conversions

  • What is a window to door conversion?

    Understanding Window to Door Conversion
    A window to door conversion, commonly referred to as a ‘brick out’, involves transforming a window into a door or enlarging the window by removing bricks from the wall to create the required space. This process entails marking the new area on the wall before removing the window and bricks to facilitate the conversion.

  • How much does a window to door conversion cost?

    Estimating the Cost of a Window to Door Conversion
    The average window to door conversion cost is around $1,900, but costs can vary from $500 to $3,800. For upscale materials or custom designs, the expenditure may exceed $23,000, especially if widening the opening for double, folding, or French doors. Factors such as materials, labor, and door type influence the overall cost of this project.

  • Do I need a permit for a window to door conversion?

    Yes, obtaining a permit is most of the time essential for a window to door conversion project, because most of the time the work involves structural changes. Whether you’re tackling the construction yourself or hiring a contractor, ensuring the proper permits are in place is crucial. Permits not only ensure that the work complies with building codes but also guarantee safety standards are met. Before beginning any conversion project, it’s advisable to check local regulations regarding permits to avoid any potential legal or safety issues down the line.

  • What types of doors can be used for a window to door conversion?

    Various types of doors can be used for a window to door conversion, including single swinging doors, French doors, and sliding glass doors.

  • How long does a window to door conversion typically take?

    A window to door conversion typically takes between 4 to 6 hours, barring any weather delays. Factors like size, materials, and complexity can influence the timeframe. Consulting with a professional contractor for a tailored estimate is advisable.

  • How much does a window to French door conversion cost?

    The typical window to French door conversion cost is anywhere between $4,994 up to around $19,993, and the big range is due to the fact that there are different variables such as the quality of French doors you decide to put in your home, as well as the complexity of modifying the wall where the old window is, especially if there are things like plumbing or electrical, those can really increase the overall cost.

  • How much does a window to sliding door conversion cost?

    Similar to French doors, the average window to sliding door conversion cost is also between $4,937 up to $19,484, and again the reason varies based on the quality of the doors you use, as well as the complexity of breaking down the wall to make room for the new door. If there is plumbing or electrical behind the wall, it can greatly increase the price to convert window to sliding door.

  • Do you offer a door to window conversion?

    Being we are a door company and not a window company, unfortunately, we do not provide a door to window conversion option. We can remove windows just like we can remove any part of the wall to make room for the door, but it is not in our scope of work to install new windows. We recommend looking for local window companies that have raving reviews on Google from real customers who love them (like we have!)
