Kits come in a standard length and all need to be cut down. This tasks can be daunting to the home owner or that is doing it themselves. We may also call the sliding screen door kit “Partially Assembled”, because it truly is. Our factory assembles and inspects the sliding screen door. Then the top and bottom frames are removed. The screening is left on the side frames. It’s all packaged in a box that can ship throughout the U.S.A.
