Sliding patio doors function as the gateway to some of the most relaxing spaces in our homes. They provide entry to the deck, three season room, patio, or the backyard. However, a damaged or improperly-installed patio door can be the cause of endless frustration. If it’s not sealed properly, a sliding patio door can cause water or wind to leak into your home. A drafty, leaky door is unpleasant no matter what season it is, but it can be a major issue during the cold winter months.
Damaged or outdated sliding patio doors can result in other issues besides leaks or drafts. Patio doors that don’t close properly can also become a major home security issue. A door that is difficult to fully close may be left open by mistake, leaving your home security at risk. Broken or finicky locking systems are another potential problem.
If you’re concerned about the security and condition of your sliding patio doors, it may be time to consider replacing them.
Why Hire a Professional?
It may be tempting to try installing your own patio doors. However, you may end up compromising on the quality of the door as well as the overall finished product. Not all patio doors are created equal. While you may be able to find inexpensive sliding patio doors at most big box home improvement stores, these are often low-grade, low-performance units. The upfront cost of these units may be lower, but cheaper units are generally far less durable and typically require repair or replacement much earlier than their higher-quality counterparts. Inferior quality isn’t the only concern with these patio doors. If the door isn’t installed correctly, you may end up facing the same issues that led you to replace your door in the first place.
A quality set of sliding patio doors, properly installed, will add beauty and functionality to your home. Beyond these benefits, your new doors can also:
- Improve Efficiency: Patio doors are large, so a drafty and inefficient unit can have a noticeable impact on your utility bills. By properly installing a quality set of doors, you can increase the energy efficiency of your home.
- Increase Security: A new set of sliding patio doors will help keep the elements out, and can also deter potential intruders from entering your home. Many quality units come equipped with additional security features.
- Add Value: Every upgrade you make to your home adds to your investment. A new set of patio doors creates a beautiful focal point in your home, and can also increase your home’s value.
