Hi all

I currently have sliding patio doors and would like to replace them with a PVCu back door and window. I've been searching online but can't seem to find a recommended distance to keep between them - reason I'm looking is the current aperture is 2060mm and I'd like to see if I can use an existing window.

Can anyone advise? I really appreciate the help

As you will have a lintel over the existing patio doors you can do what ever you like within that gap. No minimum/maximum dimensions required between the new door and window. You could have no gap if you like or a gap to suit the new door/window sizes.
