Sliding doors have been around for a while now, and they have had their fair share of challenges. For example, they are susceptible to door jamming issues. Switch things up by installing traditional French doors.
Why Replace Your Sliding Glass Door with a French Door?
Here are top four reasons why you should ditch your sliding glass door for a French door:
- Extra safety: Sliding glass doors are easy to pick. Burglars simply pop them off their tracks and rollers. Hinged doors, however, have a sophisticated locking system for extra security.
- More appealing: Many folks find patio doors more attractive to the sliding glass doors. They have numerous designs for a wide taste of options.
- Better functionality: When clogged up with debris or rusty rollers, sliding doors can be hard to open. French doors, on the other hand, are easy to open and rarely wear out. They also seal better.
- Better energy efficiency: Today’s French doors are designed using high-performance frames with a double paned, 1-inch thick glass. The low E glass transmits solar heat four times better than that of sliding glass doors.
