Sliding Glass Doors: Home Remodeling Del Mar
According to a recent survey, Americans spend more than $18.7 billion annually on outdoor home improvement projects. With more than 30 million patios and backyard decks already built in the U.S., a good portion is spent on access via sliding glass doors.
If you’re among the millions of homeowners who will be replacing or building a new deck, porch or patio this year, it’s time to do some homework on the many new materials and style options now available for sliding glass doors.
If the sliding glass doors in your home are more than 10 years old, you might notice that they are becoming harder to slide open. This problem is even more common on aluminum frame dual pane doors. The reason is because the doors are heavier due to the dual pane glass, and many of the aluminum units did not use stainless steel rollers. So, in many cases, the rollers get rusty from moisture and they start to bind. This is especially problematic in a coastal area such as Del Mar.
You may want to consider a vinyl replacement door. There is a sliding panel and a stationary panel. The vast majority of sliding glass doors in Del Mar has the sliding panel on the inside half of the track and the stationary panel on the outside.
When you are ready to have your new door installed the procedure is slightly different, depending on whether you’re installing a retrofit style frame or a replacement frame. This is not a huge problem for us, but it may affect the time involved.
