Why install sliding doors?
Whether you already have sliding doors in place that you want to upgrade, or you are replacing standard doors with sliding doors, new sliding doors offer a variety of functional and aesthetic benefits.
Sliding door features
Modern sliding doors are available in a variety of styles and offer many optional upgrades. You can choose efficient, impact-resistant glass to increase the durability of your doors, or select maximum-security hardware to provide extra peace of mind when installing exterior sliding doors.
Sliding doors that feature built-in screens are a great way to increase your home’s ventilation while keeping out bugs and animals. Likewise, solid glass sliding doors bathe your home in natural light.
Benefits of sliding doors
One key benefit of sliding doors is enhancement of your home’s aesthetic. Sliding doors add elegance to your home’s exterior, especially in locations where they provide easy access to valuable outdoor spaces like patios or pools.
At the same time, sliding doors improve visibility and increase the flow of natural light into your home. In turn, they can increase your home’s value.
The security features of sliding glass doors are another key benefit. Unlike most other types of doors, sliding glass doors can be secured not only with hardware locks that latch the door to the surrounding frame, but also with bar locks that, when engaged, block the door from opening or closing. Bar locks are highly resistant to tampering. They are also easy to install out of children’s reach, another benefit that standard locks typically can’t provide.
Reasons to install sliding doors
Homeowners opt for sliding doors for a variety of reasons. They may want to improve their home’s view by making outdoor features, such as patios or special landscaping, more visible from the indoors. They may also want to take advantage of the breadth that sliding patio doors offer, a feature that makes it easy to move between indoor and outdoor spaces.
Energy efficiency is another reason to consider sliding doors. Because the frames of sliding doors typically overlap the doors themselves, sliding doors can be fitted more tightly, and fortified with stronger weather-proofing materials, than most other types of doors.

Sliding door installation FAQs
Our dealers are prepared to answer any questions you may have about sliding door styles or installation. Following are answers to common homeowner questions.
How much does sliding door installation cost on average?
The cost of sliding door installation depends in large part on the type of door you choose. Steel doors, and doors with basic glass, typically cost less than doors made with more expensive materials like fiberglass and impact-resistant glass.
The size of the door is a factor, too. Larger doors are more expensive. In addition, the features you choose will impact price. Doors with integrated screens or custom hardware cost more than standard sliding doors.
Finally, if contractors need to adjust the size of the door opening or perform work to make the door frame square and level, that effort will be factored into the cost of installation.

How often do you need to replace sliding doors?
Although properly maintained sliding doors will typically last indefinitely, doors that are improperly flashed, or that are exposed to rainwater that pools on the ground, may need to be replaced due to rooting.
In addition, sliding door replacement may happen even if your existing doors are in good repair, you may wish to install new sliding doors to improve your home’s look, energy efficiency, or security. Doors with thick, impact-resistant glass offer more durability and energy savings than conventional, builder-grade sliding doors. Likewise, doors constructed of rot-resistant material like fiberglass provide greater longevity, while also requiring less maintenance, than conventional doors.
How long does it take for sliding doors to be installed?
Sliding door installation is usually relatively quick. In many cases, each door can be installed in just a few hours.
The major exception is if contractors need to modify the door opening prior to installing a new door. In that case, expect it to take a few days for installers to make the necessary framing adjustments and refinish the surrounding walls.
