Adding to the natural light of your home is a great way to increase its value. For many homeowners, this comes by the way of adding sliding doors. As your local window and door experts, we hear these common questions from people considering adding a sliding door to their home.

sliding doors come in a variety of standard and custom sizes to best fit your home

  • Does Size Matter? While in some industries size is a big deal, sliding doors come in a variety of standard and custom sizes to best fit your home. We can also customize the panel direction, handle options and glass pane options to fit your taste.
  • How Will the Addition Affect My Utility Bills? Our sliding doors feature double pane glass, which reflects approximately 90% of energy, meaning that your heating or cooling systems won’t be working overtime just because you added a door. Additionally, our Low-E glass panes help to reduces the amount of harmful UV rays entering your room and causing damage to your carpet and furniture.
  • How Often Does a Sliding Door Need Replacing? If you have ever lived in a home with a sliding door that sticks or doesn’t slide easily, you may be leery of sliding doors. However, we offer dual tandem adjustable wheels and other components to ensure our sliders stand up to the test of time and continue to function as they should.
