PVC patio doors reversed to open outwards

Postby kah22 » Mon Jul 20, 2020 3:16 pm

My patio doors open in. I’m about to start some renovations.
I visited a Windows Firm this morning and they quoted me £900 ballpark figure.
Of course they said the old doors couldn’t be reversed, but window people are inclined to be scarce with the truth !
Can patio doors be reversed to open out, is it a difficult job, I’d be looking somebody to do it. I suppose most important: is it a good job ? Would you recommend it, or go down that road yourself?
Thanks for any advice yo can offer

Hi kah22
If your doors are wood then yes they could be modified. If they are aluminium or pvc then probably not. You could turn the whole frame round but the removable glazing beads would be on the outside.
