It makes sense to have patios in your home. When choosing the right patio door, it’s important that you consider energy efficiency and durability. Here are a few things that can make a sliding patio door an important addition to your home:

It brings the outdoors in. Sliding glass patio doors (also known as doorwalls) come with large glass area and rather narrow frames. This configuration allows you to view your backyard and surrounding landscape without even leaving your home. The perfect combination of framing and glass also captures views so nicely.

An outdoor space can be a functional and beautiful extension of your indoor living area. But if an addition of a deck is not in your home improvement agenda, at least for now, perhaps you can do by installing a patio door – typically sliding glass doors with one fixed pane of glass and a sliding one – to bring more of the natural light and open-air vibe inside your home. It also allows a great view of your backyard and landscape.

Doorwalls provide easy access to the outdoors. Because the glass panels slide effortlessly to the side, you can easily go outside your patio or inside any room in your home. The unit doesn’t require swing space so it won’t interfere with entryways or nearby furniture.

Sliding glass doors create the illusion of more space. Much like mirrors, large glass windows and doors create the optical illusion of there being more space in a room than actually exists. This is particularly advantageous in homes where a small kitchen leads to the back patio or back yard, as small rooms need all the help they can get to feel a bit larger and more comfortable.

Enjoy the extra natural light. Large glass doors and windows tend to bring a flood of natural light into homes. This is typically a welcome sight, because it frees up some of the energy bill and generally makes the house feel more inviting. This can be considered an eco-friendly or “green” improvement to your house, which adds value to the home.

They are energy-efficient. Our patio doorwalls use high-quality insulated glass units that help with insulation inside the home. Our sliding patio doorwall units feature high-performance Low-E insulating glass for maximum energy efficiency. This glass has special coatings that reflect heat and harmful rays, keeping your home cool during hot days and warm during winter.

Here are the other benefits of installing a sliing patio doorwall:

It improves your home’s energy efficiency. Having patio doors installed allows more natural light and fresh air to penetrate in your home. In this way, you can use less of the air conditioning and artificial light.

Sliding glass doors are a great way to allow for larger objects to move in and out of the home. Because they are typically about twice as wide as regular entry doors, sliding glass doors make it easier for homeowners to move beds, couches, hutches, and other large pieces of furniture in and out of the home.

Retain visibility and safety, while keeping the elements outside. Ever wonder what it would be like to be able to keep an eye on the kids playing in the yard, without having to listen to the screaming and horseplay? Sliding glass doors provide exactly that benefit. They also insulate the home well from the elements, so you don’t have to worry about that white Christmas seeping inside the house.
