3 Popular Sliding Glass Door Choices to Upgrade Homes

Energy Shield offers all the most beautiful and practical sliding glass door configurations. Here are three of today’s most popular options for homeowners who want to elevate the appearance and increase the value of their homes:

Standard Sliding Glass Door

The traditional sliding glass door has taken over the world of home construction. There’s a slider leading out to virtually every deck and patio on virtually every house and townhome, apartment or hotel suite. It’s no wonder. Sliding glass doors are simply unsurpassed for bringing in a flow of natural light and opening up a living space to a full view of the great outdoors. A slider is two glass panels, of which one or both slide on a track horizontally to open. Sliders use no inside or outside living space because they slide instead of swinging to open. Today’s sliders offer:

  • A timeless aesthetic home design feature
  • Single or double sliding glass panel options
  • Double sliding door options, which provide added function and aesthetic value
  • The beauty of a picture window with the practical functioning of any good house door
  • State-of-the-art energy-efficient Low-E and double-pane argon gas filled glass panels
  • Upgraded safety and security features

You can have the elegant French doors you want and have all the functionality and space-saving economy of French-door-style sliders! This design innovation enables you to create gorgeous French doors that transform the aesthetic of any living space, adding a new air of exquisite charm to both the interior and exterior of your home.
