Top 3 Myths About Sliding Patio Doors

When it comes to patio doors, sliders are often considered among the best options for many homeowners because they are stylish, easy to operate and save on space. On the other hand, there are still a lot of misconceptions surrounding them. To show that sliding patio doors still deserve to be on every homeowner’s priority list, doors and windows installation expert Renewal by Andersen® of Atlanta shares a few myth-busters everyone should know.

  1. Large Panels Lead to Faulty Mechanism

Large sliding doors increases the pressure underneath, which makes them harder to operate. But, that’s already a forgotten memory from the past. Sliding patio doors are now made with unique engineering and exceptional hardware solutions that allows effortless, smooth sliding mechanism. Advanced sliding patio doors enables users to lift the the panel off the floor using high-performance roller.

  1. Sliding Doors Have a Higher Risk of Water Leaks

It’s not entirely due to the type of patio doors, but the intensity of weather conditions. Whatever it may be – double-hung windows, an angled bay window, or a French patio door – they are still prone to water leaks given enough wind pressure and rain.

  1. Sliding Patio Doors Can’t Seal the Air Inside

Sliding doors are not completely airtight – just like most doors and windows. You have to understand that it’s impossible to make your home completely airtight with regular doors and windows. This can only be achieved when you install insulation materials and specialized doors around the house.
