How to Buy Sliding Glass Doors

Sliding glass doors provide an abundance of natural lighting that enhances the look and appeal of the area while offering easy access to the outdoors. The door typically consists of a stationary door and a secondary door that slides on tracks behind the stationary door when it is opened.

It cannot be seen when behind the stationary door. To increase the look and safety of the door, add:

  • Updated handles
  • Security bars
  • Window treatments
  • Additional hardware

Sold as complete door systems, the jamb, hinges, threshold, and other necessary items needed for installation are all included in one package. An array of glass options and frame styles make it easy for any homeowner to maintain their budget while getting just the right door for their needs, regardless of your preferred style.

Door Sizes

Standard sliding glass doors are sold in a variety of sizes, making it easy for any homeowner to perfectly fit their space no matter what the measurements. Doors are sold in a minimum size of 16-inches and a width of 60-inches. Smaller door sizes are not generally available.

Variations in standard door size is possible through custom-built doors, although significant price increases occur when customizing the door size. As far as the thickness of the door, the units are sold in either a 1 ⅜” version or a 1 ¾” version. Door heights come in standard sizes of 6’8”, 6’11”, and 7’. Door configuration panels are available for larger doors, with three and four-panel options available.  There are even modern door styles that curve with a 90-degree angle.

Door Frame Material

There are  many different door frame materials that hold sliding glass doors in place. Careful selection of the frame is imperative to a reasonably priced, accommodating product that adds the value to your home that you deserve. It is the aluminum frame that more homeowners use than other materials, since it is not only durable and available in an array of attractive styles, but also extremely affordable for most any budget.

The aluminum door frame is suitable for most climates, resistant to rust and weather elements, and resistant to mold and mildew. The frame is also durable, offering many lasting years of use from the product. Aside from the aluminum door frame, materials such as steel, wood, fiberglass, and vinyl are also available.

Energy-Efficiency

Sliding glass doors have earned a reputation as being a door that leaks air and increases energy consumption and costs. Today’s modern door styles minimize such occurrences while providing a stylish patio focal point that allows the natural beauty of the outdoors shine through the home. Look for the Energy Star label when purchasing sliding glass doors.

Doors with this label have went through rigorous testing that ensures that do not allow energy loss to increase your energy costs while decreasing your comfort. Proper installation of the patio doors is essential to the best energy-efficiency possible. Additionally, add weatherstripping to the door opening for further protection against energy loss. Check and replace the weatherstripping annually or as it becomes worn.
