If you have considered selling your home recently, you know that 2021 is shaping up with record-breaking home prices and value. Could this be the year you put your home on the market? If you are considering it, there are several factors you will want to keep in mind if you plan to make updates to appeal to modern buyers. Even if you are not interested in selling, updated glass sliding doors can give your exterior an entirely new look.
Stacking sliding glass doors are a modern solution to a traditional patio door. These stacking glass doors add a flair of sophistication to the appearance of your home. They are also incredibly energy efficient and easy to use. Continue reading to learn more about stacking sliding glass doors and why you should add them to your home.
First, let us review the basics. Stacking sliding glass doors are a fascinating take on a traditional sliding door. These stacking glass doors are made up of multiple glass panels set on a track that allows for movement. Commonly homeowners will install a 3-panel sliding glass door, but by adding additional panels, outdoor views can be expanded.
These glass panels are easy to maneuver, making it simple to fold the panels into one stack or have them stacked one on top of another (think sliding glass doors that slide into the wall). Also called exterior pocket sliding glass doors, stacking doors can be used in a variety of applications.
Like the idea of extending your home onto your patio? Stacking glass doors offer an easy solution to opening up your living space to incorporate the great outdoors.
Likewise, make your patio experience just as cozy and comfortable as your living room without sacrificing style. The indoors are easily accessible while still allowing you to enjoy beautiful weather in your backyard.
And with a range of styles to choose from, finding the perfect stacking sliding glass doors to suit your taste and style is easy.
Like any home improvement, the cost of stacking sliding glass doors varies. Materials are one factor that can add to the price of your new doors. Aluminum is a standard patio door material that is also found in stacking doors. Thermal control material and a combination of wood and aluminum are also commonly found.
Labor is going to be another contributor to the cost of your stacking sliding glass doors. Installing these panels is best left up to the experts, as they will be able to ensure that the tracks are aligning correctly and the glass panels are closing as they should. The size of the patio doors will add to your costs. Of course, a basic three-panel model is going to cost less than an eight-panel stacking glass door.
Like the mobile idea of stacking glass doors, but want to save even more space? Sliding glass doors are your answer.
The most recent modern take on sliding glass doors is something that slides right into the wall. Sliding glass doors that slide into the wall allows for beautiful views of the outdoors through crystal clear glass doors and easily opens up more space without taking up storage space as a stacking door will.
