Life Is Better With Sliding Glass Doors
Despite its reputation as a hurricane hotspot, South Florida usually enjoys ample sunshine and beautiful, balmy weather. Sliding glass doors take full advantage of the pleasant climate, affording spacious views and emitting lots of natural light. They also offer easy access to the outdoors, making them ideal complements to decks, pools, and patios.
As if that weren't enough, the premium sliding door solutions you'll find at South Florida Windows & Doors offer even more perks. Many of our sliding glass doors and pocket doors feature UV protection to safeguard you and your home against damaging solar radiation. You'll also find features like enhanced energy efficiency, wind resistance, and noise reduction.
Impact-Resistant Sliding Glass Door Installation
Can sliding glass doors help hurricane-proof your South Florida home? If you choose one of the many impact-rated options from South Florida Windows & Doors, the answer is a resounding yes. In fact, our high-performance doors are engineered and lab-tested to take on nature's toughest challenges without breaking down.
All of our sliding glass doors are made with impact-resistant glass, which is fortified with an ultra-strong internal polymer layer. This layer makes the glass much more resilient while preventing it from shattering and flying apart when broken. Our sliding glass door installations also feature heavy-duty hardware, including reinforced frames and tracks. These upgrades ensure that your doors stay in place no matter what forces nature conspires to throw against them.
Is It Time for a Sliding Glass Door Replacement?
If your current sliding glass doors or pocket doors are starting to show their age, you may be wondering when to replace them. While there's no correct answer for every situation, there are a few key considerations to keep in mind. First and foremost, older doors are often less secure, making them more vulnerable to storm damage and break-in attempts. If they no longer seal tightly, they may also be making your home less efficient. More generally, it's probably time to consider replacing your sliding doors if:
- The glass regularly fogs up and traps moisture
- The doors are difficult to operate or don't shut securely
- There's visible damage to the glass, frame, track, or rollers
