If your doors are not installed with these requirements, as a professional would do, it may lead to damage to not only your door, but additionally to your home. Your Sunrise Window warranty will also be voided if the door is improperly installed. See “Installation matters.”

To accomplish this, your Sunrise installation team needs to be able to get to both the outside and inside of the door.
Please remove curtains, blinds or other any decorative treatments. Also, have your security company remove any security sensors if you have them. Please move furniture or anything else in the way to make a clear path to the door that is being replaced. It is also a good idea to take down any pictures or wall decorations close to the door as they could fall during removal of the old door or the installation of the new one.
No. Your authorized dealers are trained to install patio and entry doors with as little disturbance to your home as possible.
Dealers will often use protective coverings such as drop cloths or plastic sheeting to cover your floor and furnishings at and near the work area.
Cleanup and disposal of your old doors is written into your contract. As with any home improvement project, it is typically the contractor’s responsibility to dispose of all project-related debris and to provide all the equipment necessary for cleanup (such as a dumpster, wet/dry vacuum and heavy-duty garbage bags).
