Sliding doors have been around since the days of Classical Rome, but they are still fresh and contemporary even today. Sliding doors are most often used for patios or decks. Here’s why we like them so much.
Benefits of Custom Built Sliding Doors
One of our favourite benefits of sliding doors is that they become large windows. They allow maximum light into your home while providing some of the best views of any type of door. Homeowners like them because there is no clearance space like there is with a conventional door. The door doesn’t swing back, so you don’t have to clear the entire space behind it.
Custom built sliding doors are easy to open and close. All you have to do is keep debris out of the track and clean it on a regular basis and your door slides like butter.
At Fremantle Door and Window, we build our sliding doors out of thick, weatherproof glass and solid timber. This provides an aesthetic that is unparallelled by aluminum sliding doors or conventional doors.
Because the materials are so solid and the build is so perfect, our custom built sliding doors help insulate your home. This saves you money on heating and cooling costs.
What Does This Have to Do With Patios?
Sliding doors are perfect for patios. Besides the benefits discussed above, they are perfect for patios because they can help integrate the patio with the inside of your home. The opening in the door is wide enough to make it easy for you to entertain guests. It feels like the patio is part of the family room or living room when you are entertaining friends or family.
