Q: How do I determine the overlap required for the door compared to the opening for my sliding door?

March 18, 2011 by  

A:  It is an aesthetic decision, but perhaps between 20mm and 100mm each side.  Slightly more overlap might be prefereable, as this may help reduce noise transference between the rooms.  The dimensions of your existing architrave and skirting boards will affect the distance off the wall that the door will run, so bear in mind that may present an additional gap for draughts and light to escape through and affect the finished look.
