A large lift slide door for a windy city.
Project: Chicago Lift Slide
Location: Chicago, Illinois
Building Type: Residential
Window Products Selected: Hawkeye Windows’ grand lift slide patio door.
Summary: This particular project was an integral part of a major remodeling project for a residence in the bustling city of Chicago, Illinois. Hawkeye Windows and Doors was commissioned to supply a two panel lift slide door. The custom door was designed to open up into the master bedroom, so the homeowner could enjoy the spectacular views of the city while allowing full seasonal air circulation during the spring and fall. The client also required that the door seal firmly and tightly against the infamously chilling winter winds Chicago is renowned for.
While the door for this renovation is rather large at 15 feet and weighs in at 1,400 pounds, the size did seem to be substantially larger considering it had to be hoisted up three stores for an exterior installation. Like many of the projects we are engaged to supply custom windows and doors for, our team is available for our clients every step of the way. This project was no different; as we were not only the fenestration supplier on record, we also oversaw the delivery and unloading of the sizeable two panel lift slide door. The project location was very compact, so Hawkeye was on hand to work with the general contractor during the unloading process to ensure everything went safely and securely- without a hitch!
As with all the projects we are involved with, we are always proud of the end result. Our beautifully detailed custom European door remodeled into the master suite not only pleased the client immensely, it was a flawless match for this urban city residence. Equally important, this project was a true representation of the quality fenestration products we supply around the country and the exceptional services we offer at Hawkeye Windows and Doors.
