3 Myths About Sliding Patio Doors

Sliding patio doors have a lot to offer, but some homeowners are wary about them due to a few persistent misconceptions. As a door and window replacement authority, Renewal by Andersen® of Portland is here to debunk these myths to provide you with a more accurate idea of what you can expect from sliding patio doors.

3 Myths About Sliding Patio Doors

1. Sliding Patio Doors Are Ugly

While sliding patio doors generally feature a clean, utilitarian aesthetic, they are definitely not ugly, especially when you take advantage of composite materials like Fibrex® that can mimic the appearance of natural wood. You just have to make sure to choose quality sliding patio doors to harness the sleek charm they have to offer.

2. Sliding Patio Doors Are Hard to Operate

Sliding patio doors glide along a track to open or close. This makes them very easy to use, needing just a gentle push to operate. When a sliding door is hard to open or close, it’s likely that its tracks and rollers need cleaning or lubricating.

3. Sliding Patio Doors Easily Leak When It Rains

A high-quality sliding patio door that was properly installed should be completely weathertight, just like a high-quality window replacement. Doors with tracks installed flush with the floor are particularly resistant to water leaks because they seal flat against the floor when closed.
