    You can get them at any home improvement store. While there ask if they know reputable people to install them.

    Be careful with big box stores, they sub out the jobs and the sub can sub it out again to a not so good installer. It's really hit or miss with them since they don't have their own. You could try your local lumber supply companies and I'm sure they can give you the name of reputable installers. Also, just form your information, French doors have a higher instance of leaking than a sliding glass door. We had French doors installed in a new build on the second floor deck. They leaked and they'd come "fix it" and it'd leak again and so on. Eventually a rep from the door company came and checked it out. They ordered a new door and the rep was there for the install. Still leaked. Rep then said, well all these doors leak. Really??? What good is a door if it leaks? He said it's because it wasn't under cover. We ended up putting screen doors on it which stopped the leaks (not the best look or function the way we wanted). If I did it again, I'd go with the slider, they make some really nice ones.

    Hi Loretta, Installation should be done by a company who installs doors. One handyman can't do it by himself. Typically it will cost you for a paint grade set of doors in a standard size about $500. The install will probably be the same. The price of the doors goes up from there. If they're a custom size, expect to start around $1200 with install being extra. Good luck.
