As a local commercial glass company, we can tell you with confidence that demand for sliding glass door installations is through the roof. What’s behind this sudden popularity of a home classic? We’ve identified three factors:
Sliding Glass Doors Make Outdoor Living Easy
Listen, we’ve all just been through a pandemic. Nobody’s bouncing back quickly. Whether you’re still staying home or you’re entertaining all of your family and friends, chances are outdoor living is now more appealing than ever before. A sliding glass door is the perfect way to transition from the indoor kitchen or dining room to a deck set up for entertaining. Additionally, sliding glass doors make it easy to let the kids and pets out to play in the backyard while you can keep an eye on them from air conditioned comfort.
Sliding Glass Doors Are Now Energy Efficient
Once upon a time, sliding glass doors were a top culprit in terms of energy and heat loss. The glass industry got to work on this issue. Today you can get sliding glass door units that are highly energy efficient. The glass, frames, and seals are all designed to keep warm air out and cool air in during the summer, and the reverse, once winter arrives.
