    Three Season Patio Door Modifications

    I was wondering if anyone has modified their three season patio doors to have tinted acrylic inserts instead of the vinyl windows? I'm looking at possibly doing this upgrade and if anyone has pointers on this project I would appreciate some input.

    Had thought about converting but didn't pursue it because not sure how. Definitely interested also.

    Re: Three Season Patio Door Modifications

    Are you looking for privacy or more thickness for noise/insulation?

    I am not sure how the doors come, but I see on the Lippert website that the doors have 3 options:

    Three shade settings: full light, UV protection and full privacy

    Have you called Lippert to inquire if they sell the other panels? If you are just wanting to do tinted acrylic it should be fairly straightforwrd. The cutting to size will take the longest time. Then just add the velcro to it.

    Good luck.

    I'm actually looking for more privacy and insulation, my two Great Danes stay in the cargo area.

    That makes sense. I have not done this before, but have seen others make these for their main screen doors. It should be the same process of cutting to size, adding velcro then connecting them. The only thing you will really need to decide is what thickness acrylic you want to use.

    We put full length curtains on the inside (black-out curtains) of the three season door. Works very well to block sunlight and keep the heat out of the garage also. Initially though out using colored plexiglass to replace the saran wrap and metal frame but wife wanted curtains.

    And the wife just reminded me that she was right.

    I had 1/8" lexan sheets cut to fit and used velcro tape to hold them in place. MUCH better than the plastic sheeting that was in there. Looks great and can easily pop out if desired.
