Cost to replace inside sliding door with new one?

I'm just wondering what the cost to replace an inside patio sliding door with a new one may be installed. We have an old aluminum one that was here when we bought the house 2 years ago and it hardly slides and is kind of beat up looking.

Could I get a white one installed for under $2000? I don't want top of the line, but not junk either.

Thanks

The Andersen 200 Series Permashield gliding door is a decent door that has a proven track record, and I wouldn't be afraid to recommend it. You could get one at Home Depot for around $800 - 850. If you were in my neck of the woods, I would happily put one in for around $2000. If you can locate your own installer, or if you wanted to DIY, that would be best. You can get a HD installer, but you will be paying a premium to have them do the work for you and it's anyone's guess who you will get... never know how good of a finish carpenter they will be. Best to get someone local that others are pleased with, imo.

Thanks. What about the MasterPiece sliding door here for $578?
MasterPiece 72 in. x 80 in. Composite Right-Hand Sliding Patio Door with Smooth Interior-G6068R00201 - The Home Depot

Also this door goes from my kitchen to a 3 season room, not directly outside if that makes any difference.

You asked about price. You were not looking at the model I was referring to.

Read the description. One of 5 parts to order.
Frame $195
Stationary panel $252
Sliding panel $252
Screen (you don't need)
Handle/lockset (Tribeca-white) $46.33

Plus tax.

Just as an example.

Thanks XSleeper! How hard do you think it would be to install for a novice like myself? I've never installed any doors before, but I guess I'm slightly handy. For example, I scraped, repainted and stained by back deck all summer.


EDIT - On second thought I think it's better to have someone install it, it looks like a lot of work and I don't have all the tools. What do you think a Big box store would charge to install if I pieces together this Anderson door?

Several yrs ago I helped a buddy install a sliding glass door in his dining rm to go out to his new deck. Previously there was just a window. IMO it wasn't all that difficult but I couldn't imagine trying to install the door itself by myself, wasn't bad with 2 people.

As X said, you are better off not using the big box contractors! Often they are those that don't have a great reputation and rely on the big box sales to get them work [not to say that some of their contractors aren't good] By checking around and hiring your own contractor you can be better assured before the job starts that it will be done right. Always check references and look at their previous work if possible. IMO word of mouth is the best advertising!
