Considering Installing a New Sliding Glass Patio Door?

Follow our quick and easy guide to patio door installation. If you have any questions or need a quote on a new sliding glass patio door, call us and we’ll be happy to get your project started.

How Do Sliding Glass Doors Operate?

A sliding patio door consists of two panel sections. One section is fixed, while the other section — you guessed it — slides along a track. Sliding patio doors can slide open from the left or the right — it’s up to you. Modern sliding patio doors also feature advanced multipoint locking systems to make them safe and secure.

Sliding Patio Doors vs. French Doors

Sliding patio doors are for Des Moines homeowners who want easy use, amazing outdoor views, and plenty of natural light. Due to their design, sliding patio doors tend to offer more light and view than French patio doors. They also require less floor space since they don’t swing outward.

Are Sliding Glass Doors Energy-Efficient?

All the awesome energy advancements of modern-day windows also apply to sliding patio doors. Sliding patio doors can come with multiple glass panes, low-E glass coating, insulated frames, and everything else a window does. This helps keep your home at a comfortable temperature while lowering those monthly energy bills.
