Sliding doors are a great and affordable way to save space and to really open up the feel of a room. Unlike hinged doors that swing open, sliding patio doors require no space for swing room, which helps to save space while incorporating an added light source, great view of the outdoors and beauty to your home.

Commonly constructed from aluminum and vinyl, standard sliding doors operate on simple horizontal tracks at the head and sill and can either have a right-hand or left-hand operation, which is why it’s important to research what will work best for your space. They can also be designed to feature grids between the panes of glass to add a little style and flair to your door.

Consider the following when searching for a sliding door for your space:

  • Operation – take the time to examine the doors to ensure that they feel snug in its tracks, but that it moves smoothly along rollers. The doors should function as if they are floating rather than sliding.
  • Security – thoroughly inspect the doors locking system. Despite the variety of hardware options, the best doors will utilize hardware of higher quality. Make sure that the locks meet or exceed local forced-entry codes.
  • Energy Efficiency – choose a sliding patio door that is well insulated and that features the appropriate energy-saving glass to help lower the costs of heating and cooling your home
