OPEN YOUR HOME TO LIGHT AND THE OUTDOORS WITH A SLIDING DOOR
Sliding doors (also known as “patio doors”) are a space-saving way to open up your home to the outdoors. They open up a room with a great outdoor view and add light and beauty to your home. Roofing & More offers a wide range of sliding doors for your choice.
Sliding doors generally have one large pane of safety glass on each side, to give an unobstructed view of the outside. They are sturdy and hold up well in heavy use. Modern options include built-in blinds between layers of glass. The blinds never need to be cleaned and open and close via an exterior control.
Some sliding patio doors have grilles between the panes of glass to give a window pane look. This gives the door the style of French doors.
There are many different types of glass available for use in sliding patio doors:
- Tempered glass is very strong. It is the most commonly used glass because of its safety characteristics. Since it is strong and durable it does not break easily.
- Laminated glass is the best glass for noise reduction. If you live in an area that is near traffic or other loud noises it can eliminate a large percentage of the noise. It also provides the highest degree of protection from ultraviolet rays, keeping out approximately 99 percent of them.
- Optional argon gas can be used between the panes of glass to improve thermal performance.
- Tinted glass provides additional shading and a unique look for your room. There are many shades that you can choose from, depending on the manufacturer.
Sliding glass doors are weatherproof and energy-efficient, and can add value and style to your Herndon, Chantilly, Alexandria or Fairfax home.
