Top 3 Benefits of Sliding Glass Patio Doors

Sliding glass patio doors have long been a beloved choice for patio doors in Nashville. Our customers love our Dharma sliding patio doors for their sleek look, efficiency, and smooth operation. You may already be considering them for your upcoming patio doors project. But how do you know they’re right for your home? Here are a few of the top benefits you can enjoy.

Energy Efficiency

While most doors run on hinges and have a slight gap between the bottom edge and the ground, sliding glass patio doors run on a closed track. The entire door frame is tightly sealed and with the lack of hinges, there’s no chance of drafts getting through. This makes sliding glass patio doors excellent insulators, and therefore excellently energy efficient. Not only can they save you money on your HVAC bills, but with all the natural light flooding into the room, you won’t have to rely on electrical lighting as much.

Extended Outdoor Views

You’ve probably experienced a summer day like this: not a cloud in the sky, green grass — and stifling heat. It can be difficult to feel motivated to go outside on days like that, but you don’t want to miss out on those outdoor views. With sliding patio doors, you don’t have to miss any of the scenery. You can enjoy the beautiful outdoors from the comfortable, air conditioned space inside your home. The same applies for beautiful snowy days amidst harsh freezing temperatures. If the temperatures won’t allow you to go outside, sliding patio doors allow the outdoors to come to you.

Easy Operation

In terms of operation, nothing is easier than a sliding patio door. There’s no swinging, no threshold, so you can decorate the interior room or even your patio however you’d like. A sliding patio door is light to open and closes securely, allowing you to move with ease and comfort inside and out. This is a feature that comes in handy especially during family gatherings or other entertaining functions. Security is easy, too. Dharma patio doors come with key locks that allows you to lock and unlock the door from outside, as well as optional toe- or thumb-bolts.

With sliding patio doors, you can enjoy all these benefits and more — plus, they look great. Dharma sliding glass patio doors can even be customized to take on a look similar to that of French doors — but with the convenience of sliding doors. Interested?
