Incorporating Sliding Glass Doors Into Your Home
Sliding glass doors can add elegance and class to any room in your home. From renovating your master suite to simply making your backyard more accessible from any room in your home, sliding doors are a surefire way to upgrade your home. Plus, they allow you to optimize natural light in your home, another bonus!
At Pro Windows, we have several styles available depending on your wants and needs. We also know that traditionally, large sliding glass doors can be a major loss of energy efficiency in a home. That’s why we offer a variety of energy efficient styles in order to keep your home looking good and your energy bills down.
How to Choose the Right Style
Choosing the right style of sliding glass doors for your home depends on your home’s structure, available room, and personal choice. We offer traditional styles as well as vinyl sliding doors so you can make sure to match the new doors to your home. A traditional, older home may not look great with vinyl sliding doors, so going with a more traditional frame, like aluminum or wood, can be a better fit. Our experts can help you go over your specifications and style choices in order to find your home’s best fit.
What are the Benefits of Installing Sliding Glass Doors?
In the past, sliding doors were considered a security hazard or a drain on energy efficiency. Things have changed—now these sliding doors come with security glass, making shattering almost impossible. In addition, different framing options and glass types have actually made them more energy efficient, so you can enjoy natural light without the energy drain. Other benefits include:
- Great indoor/outdoor flow that can make your home seem bigger
- Saving space since sliding doors open and close on their own rails, you no longer have to worry about blocking access to your outdoor space
- Optimal viewing—whether you have kids playing out back or a great view, sliding doors can provide you with a great way to keep an eye on your kids as they play outside or enjoy a great sunset
- Enhanced architectural style—sliding doors usually go well with all home styles. They add natural light and provide easy access to outdoor spaces
How are Sliding Glass Doors Installed?
First and foremost, our experts will come to your home and evaluate the space or spaces where you want your new sliding doors. Then, we will go over choices and styles in order to see if you are better off choosing traditional sliding doors or vinyl sliding doors. From there, our experts will explain the installation process. Installing sliding doors to a home that does not have them does require us to cut through the wall in order to fit the doors. Sometimes it may not be possible to install them exactly where you want due to your home’s structure. We ensure that wherever we install the doors, we are not compromising your home’s structural integrity.
