Another San Diego summer will be here before you know it! If your home has a backyard, or even a back patio, you will likely want to spend time there this summer and enjoy the beautiful San Diego days and evenings.
If you currently have a sliding glass door that is difficult to open and close, and is more frustrating to you than convenient, it may be time to replace it—especially if it is also letting in the heat and cold from the outside.
You may be under the impression that anything with that much glass will inevitably let in the heat and cold, but this isn’t the case with the energy-efficient patio doors sold by reputable replacement window and door dealers like BM Windows in San Diego. Their patio doors come with many energy-saving features that help insulate your house from whatever temperature it is outside. Even if you have an entire wall full of glass patio doors, your home can easily maintain a comfortable temperature inside—year-round.
Sliding Glass Patio Doors in Two Styles for San Diego Homes
At BM Windows, they offer two different styles of patio doors for their San Diego customers. The first style is what most people think of when they picture sliding glass patio doors. They are the type with slim frames and large panels of glass. Most of the time, they consist of two separate panels—one that is operable and one that is fixed. But you can also get sliding glass doors with three panels or four panels to fill larger spaces.
The second style of sliding glass patio doors they offer is French sliding patio doors. This style features thicker vinyl frames around the glass to mimic the look of traditional swinging French doors. Many people consider this style of door an “upgrade” over the more common type of sliding patio doors.
No matter which style of sliding glass patio door you choose, you have the option to include glass sidelites on either side of the door, which are basically smaller, inoperable glass panels that give you more glass area for viewing the outdoors and letting natural light into your home. You can also choose to add an in-glass pet door that will allow your furry friends to easily come and go.
