Sliding Door Myths You Need to Stop Believing Right Now

Sliding Door Myths You Need to Stop Believing Right NowMany homeowners with sliding patio doors complain about the doors’ ease of operation. They complain that you have to push the door this way, or slide that way, or jiggle the handle a little bit to make sure that it closes properly. These onerous requirements give the impression that sliding doors are high maintenance, and therefore a bad investment.

Sliding Door Myths You Need to Stop Believing Right Now

The good news is that these problems are a thing of the past. Sliding doors from Renewal by Andersen® of Portland are better than ever thanks to recent advancements and upgrades. In today’s post, we separate myth from reality when it comes to sliding doors:

Questionable Tightness

One source will claim sliding doors are airtight, or at least more airtight than other types of doors, while another source will say sliding doors leak water whenever it rains. First, it’s practically impossible for home doors to be completely hermetically sealed, and sliding doors are not an exception. Secondly, leakage may have been an issue in older doors, but newer models have addressed this issue, so you can consider this myth busted.

Ugly and Heavy

If you’ve ever seen a sliding door installation done, it’s not surprising why you would think it would be heavy. In actuality, most materials used to build sliding doors nowadays are lightweight and durable, designed to be structurally sound while maintaining ease of use!

Ease of Use

Older homes tend to have heavy sliding doors that are a nightmare to open or shut. Luckily, modern designs have greatly improved the sliding door and you can expect smooth gliding every time.
