In place of double garage door opening, I have two sets of inward swinging Peach Tree “steel” French doors; standing in front of said doors which were installed in 1987, the left side is pinned while the right side opens. In terms of condition, both doors sets are in excellent condition and appear to sit square within their frame. However, the center mullion on one door set is somewhat rotted close to its bottom -- this is, moving upwards from the door threshold. I would like to have the mullion fixed, thresholds on both doors replaced, new weather seals installed on the bottom of each door, and outside trim around said doors repaired or replaced. And, no, I’m not interested in purchasing new doors as with the exception of the work mentioned above, existing doors are double-paned, stand square as earlier mentioned, and are somewhat proficient in terms of energy loss.
My problems are two-fold: (1) Should I have someone remove both sets of doors from existing framing, and reinstall as a new install or simply have them do the patch-work as explained above? What's your guess as to costs concerning the former? (2) Most companies I've contacted voice that Peach Tree is out of business, there would be a parts obtainment problem, and that I should invest in new door; seemingly, skilled craftsmen-ship has fallen by the way side. Also, If anyone has knowledge of a company in the Washington D.C. area that takes on such work, please provide information
