One of the most popular things we
install. Most homes in the fifties, sixties
and seventies were built with sliding doors that have
reached the end of their lives. They get tough to
roll, tough to latch, screens get damaged, and here's
a shocker... the company that made that door in 1972
doesn't sell parts for it anymore... they do however
sell new doors... (go figure)
Grills are available, as is full glass,
and screens on all units.Units can be made of wood,
vinyl, steel, or fiberglass.
French Doors hinge from the sides and have a
door knob in the middle. One door is a primary operator
but the dead panel can be unlatched as well to provide
full access. This example has a dead sidelite on the end to make up a 94" opening.
Atrium Style Doors
Hinge in the center. One panel is
stationary and one is operational, door knob and deadbolt
are on one side or the other
Vinyl or Aluminum sliding doors
help save living space and provide the maximum amout
of light in any opening. That's important in many
homes. A sliding door delivers 44% more light than
a french door (standard sliding 6 foot door has 32.8
square feet of glass, a standard 6 foot french door
has 18.4 square feet of glass). That's a big difference
as far as available light. Sizes available run from
Five foot to Twelve foot in length, and consist of
two to four panels of glass. Wood sliding doors are
also very popular. They are usually aluminum or vinyl
on the outside, but a paintable or stainable wood
on the inside. These tend to be a higher end product,
