Wide-span doors used to be a feature found in only the most upscale San Diego homes, but not any longer. Door manufacturers are now offering wide-span door options that are much more affordable and offer many more features than in years past. As more and more manufacturers enter the wide-span door marketplace, the competition is a boon for San Diego homeowners looking for reasonable cost, increased design technology and a myriad of stylistic and functional options. Although prices of wide-span doors have become less expensive in recent years, they are still considered a premium upgrade in most San Diego homes.
The concern in years past with wide-span doors has always been two-fold: installation difficulties and weather sealing. But door manufacturers are now designing wide-span doors with unique draining systems in the sills to keep rain and bad weather out. Professional San Diego door installation services are now more experienced with wide-span door projects, since the products are more common in the marketplace.
Wide-span doors are a great option to connect outdoor living spaces like patios or pool decks to interior living spaces. Rather than pay for expensive interior space expansion projects, wide-span doors are a cost-efficient way to expand living space into the outdoor areas of the household. They can be extremely energy efficient too, as wide-span doors with energy efficient glass offer more energy efficiency than walls during the cooler months of the year. And if bugs are a concern, retractable screens are always an option.
For smaller San Diego homes that maybe do not feature a multitude of windows and glass to provide sunlight and fresh air, wide-span doors are a perfect addition to make an entire wall seemingly disappear, connecting interior spaces with outdoor living space and offering beautiful views, fresh air and San Diego sunshine.
