Getting to Know Glass Screen Doors

Glass screen doors are a wonderful option for people who’d like the benefits of a screen door but maybe don’t want one that’s so obvious. Like glass doors in general, there is a great ability to customize glass screen doors to fit exactly what you need and want.

Many glass screen doors are manufactured as security doors, because they’re made of what’s called tempered glass. Tempered glass is also known as safety glass.

It’s made through rapidly heating and cooling the glass to extremes, which makes it stronger than regular glass. That means it doesn’t shatter into shards if it breaks.

Instead, it breaks apart into little pebble-size pieces, something with which you may be familiar, if you’ve ever been involved in a car accident. Vehicles are also manufactured with safety glass.

Changing the Guard

Glass screen doors can come as full-length glass doors, also known as full-view doors, which have a small frame around a large glass panel. They are also available as doors that have larger frames around smaller glass panels. Even with doors that are full-view, though, you still have the option of ventilation.

Many glass screen doors come with the ability to switch out the glass panels with an interchangeable screen panel, so that you can have air flow whenever you want. Doors that don’t have the interchangeable panels usually have moveable glass panels, so you can raise or lower them to enjoy a breeze. Still others may be available with retractable screens.

Seeing Through

If you’ve been wanting the look of a glass exterior door, but are not sure they’re private enough for you, a glass screen door is a good compromise. You can get the extra light that a glass door provides without giving up any privacy—you can close your main exterior door whenever you want, after all.

However, maybe even a glass screen door makes you feel a little too exposed. In that case, you have the same options as someone seeking a glass exterior door. You can opt for a door with a full, clear glass panel or you can get something a little more decorative or frosted. In addition, smaller glass panels may also provide the privacy you require.

Keeping It Clear

Maintenance for a glass screen door is similar to maintaining any door or at least, any glass door. There are some things for which you should watch. For example, water spots can get baked into the glass if your door gets a lot of sun. They’re not usually permanent, but it will still take some elbow grease to remove them, though.

To avoid the hassle, try to wipe the door dry whenever it gets wet. This is not always convenient or feasible, of course, but if your door is going to be exposed to sun, you should keep it dry whenever possible. Otherwise, you should clean the glass regularly and make sure the door in general is maintained.
