Sliding glass doors are a contemporary look on the class back door. Sleek and stylish, you can’t go wrong with a sliding glass patio door.
The patio is one of the most-used places in a home. For barbecues and backyard activities, Michigan has mild summer that allow for a patio party most months of the year. One of the best ways to improve your patio experience is with a new patio door from Ann Arbor Windows & Doors.
Sliding doors usually are made up of two large panes of glass, one which slides on a track to make the opening and closing of the door simple and easy. The great thing about sliding glass doors is that they provide top-to-bottom ventilation, and can be opened just a crack or all the way. Because bugs are often a concern during Michigan summers, many patio doors are paired with a screen door to prevent bugs from getting inside.
Sliding glass doors are fairly energy efficient, made up of a single pane or sometimes even multiple panes for added insulation. Our technicians install premium weather-stripping to seal the door to the frame so that there is no heat lost during the winter months. With a patio door, you should always regularly check and maintain the weather stripping to ensure you aren’t losing valuable heat.
Sliding glass doors are great to provide a large viewport between your house and the patio of your backyard. We carry many different sizes of doors, so we can also help you expand the wall into a beautiful sliding glass door.
