How long is the lead time for Sliding Glass Doors?
This really ranges. Currently we are able to order and receive sliding glass doors within 4-8 weeks. We sell many different brands of doors, all with different lead times. We are happy to suggest a door that will fit into your time line. Impact doors do take slightly longer than non-impact.
Less than 2 years ago after Hurricane Wilma we were experiencing lead times up to 10 months. Things can change quickly in this Southwest Florida market.
