7 Reasons to Choose a Sliding Patio Door

The best time for outdoor events is approaching—fresh air, open windows, and doors, and DIY projects on the patio are in order! This year, as the season for everything outdoors draws near, isn’t it time you update your backyard with a new sliding patio door?

  1. Advantage: luxury, garden look—“The Gliding French Door” 

    With Imagine, you get the garden door look in a sliding version suited for every home style: urban, country chic, industrial, contemporary, etc.
  2. Advantage: maximized space illusion

    Vinyl sliding doors are an excellent way to open up a small or oddly shaped area to widen the views and create the illusion of a larger space. This is particularly important with smaller rooms to combat that “closed in” feel. The bigger the space looks, the more impressive.
  3. Advantage: maximize space utilization

    There is no need to measure your floor space or worry about furniture placement (both indoors and on your patio) to ensure sliding patio doors will easily open and close—they conveniently slide seamlessly out of the way! Swing doors demand a specific radius which may be an issue in tight spaces.
  4. Advantage: maximized air ventilation

    With sliding doors, homeowners have the added luxury of opting for screen doors. This means you get for that “open feel” without added pollen, bugs, or other pests. This also allows the host/hostess to remain engaged with guests while entering and exiting the home for more drinks, food, and games! This gliding French Door comes with three different screen options:
  • Standard gliding screen
  • “Heavy Duty” gliding screen
  • Integrated, retractable screen 
  1. Advantage: maximized energy efficiency 

    We care about the environment and your energy bills—check out these details:
  • ENERGY STAR rated
  • Glass: full 1-inch insulated glass
  • Multi-chamber frame for increased thermal performance
  • Low-E + Argon standard option (which is 63% more energy efficient than the standard glass option)
  1. Advantage: low maintenance
