Sliding Patio Doors 101

  • Sliding patio doors are made with two sectioned panels—one that moves, and one that remains fixed. The movable panel glides on a track with rollers. The movable panel can also open to either the left or right—whatever your preference.
  • For most homeowners in Charlotte, sliding patio doors tend to be more practical than swinging patio doors. Sliding patio doors need less room to function, since they do not swing outward or inward. This lets you put sliding patio doors in tighter spaces than you could swinging patio doors.
  • Since sliding patio doors are made mostly of glass, they provide unbeatable outdoor views, airflow, and sunshine. What’s especially great about modern sliding patio doors is the advanced technology with which they are made.

  • High-quality sliding patio doors in Charlotte have advanced security features that older sliding patio doors do not have, including multi-point locking systems and key locks. When you install replacement sliding patio doors, you boost the security of your home.
