The Benefits of Sliding Patio Doors

Sliding patio doors can add a simple style and safety to your backyard.

Warmer weather is coming in the next few months, which means that many Marylanders will be itching to get outside. Now is the perfect time to start planning ahead for your new deck or patio, and part of the equation is the perfect doors. What are some of the benefits of sliding patio doors? 

Easier to Access 

Traditional doors in and out of your home are not very wide, and are also limited by the trajectory of the door and the angle of the hinges. Sliding doors allow for a much wider berth, making them ideal for gatherings where people walk in and out of your home. They also provide an excellent way to get large and oversized objects, like couches and furniture, out of your home without worrying about the side of your front or side doors. 

Energy Efficiency 

Sliding patio doors are an excellent way to maintain a steady climate inside your home, and there are double-pane options for even greater energy efficiency. By installing new sliding doors that lead to your patio or deck, you’ll be able to easily keep cool air inside in the summer and warm air locked in during the winter. We can help you explore all of your glass and door finishing options, including coated or glazed glass, to improve efficiency further. 

Better Safety 

When you choose sliding patio doors, your home will also benefit from increased safety. Traditional swinging doors can be a hazard for kids and pets, who might unintentionally be hit by the door as it opens or closes. As long as you don’t move your sliding door, it will not budge. Some people believe that sliding patio doors are less secure, but they can be more secure than traditional doors when you use locking mechanisms like multi-point locks that protect both the top and bottom of the door.
