Buying the Best Sliding Glass Doors

Sliding glass doors can be a great investment for your home. Not only do they allow you a view of your backyard (or other property), but they can allow for ventilation and extra light into your home.

If you’re in the market for a sliding door, undoubtedly you want to find the best sliding glass doors that you can. To do so, you should look for:

  • quality construction
  • quality design
  • quality reputation

That might seem easier said than done, but it’s not hard to find the best sliding glass doors if you know what to look for. And speaking of looks, figure out the look that you want for your home and that will narrow down your options to a manageable selection.

Making It Material

You may think that determining material is a moot point. After all, the door’s going to be glass, right? However, there’s still the question of what material will be framing that glass. Metal-framed sliding glass doors are one of the most common options and probably the kind with which you’re most familiar. Metal patio doors are usually made of either steel or aluminum.

Both are prized for being sturdy—they won’t warp in temperature extremes—but they can still be damaged and if they are damaged, they’re more vulnerable to rust. If you’re concerned about maintenance—and price—you might want to choose a frame made of vinyl or fiberglass. While vinyl can crack in extreme weather, generally it’s a pretty good frame material. Fiberglass is even more reliable. And both can be made to mimic more expensive materials, like wood.

Back To Sliding

Like all sliding glass doors, the best sliding glass doors are installed to slide on a track that’s built into the threshold. This makes sliding glass doors an excellent option for spaces where there are unmovable obstructions or where you just don’t want a door that opens in or out into a space.

Speaking of space, they may not be the best option for your home if you need a wider opening. In that case, you might consider French doors for your patio. If that’s not an issue, another concern may be style. Sliding glass doors give homes a modern look, so some people feel they’re not the most appropriate choice for homes that are older. However, you can choose framing that makes the door fit into your style more and ultimately, the look of your home should be your decision.

Safety First

Because of the track, getting in or out of the door can be difficult for people who have trouble crossing the threshold. It can be a tripping hazard, so that’s something to consider if someone in your home has mobility issues. Your other safety concerns are likely home security. While it’s true that the standard locks on most sliding glass doors can be flimsy, you can ameliorate that problem in a number of different ways.

These include installing an extra, more secure lock. These include locks that install at the top or the bottom of the door, which makes them harder for people outside to access and adds an extra layer of security. In addition, security bars can be added to make it harder to jar the door from the frame. Most of these bars are inexpensive, so consider them a must if you’re concerned about home security.
