Sliding patio doors offer a modern, sleek solution to the challenge of how to stay warm and dry inside while enjoying what the outdoors has to offer to the full. Uninterrupted views and increased daylight make sliding patios doors from Clear View a great option to connect your home with your garden. Some myths still surround patio doors, though, founded when patio doors were still in the infancy of design. Here are four of those misleading myths explained for you.
Myth #1: Sliding patio doors are hard to open
You might have memories of heavy sliding patio doors that got stuck in the tracks and were difficult to use, but this is no longer a problem for modern doors as larger doors can now be top-hung in a lift-slide design to avoid the friction on bottom tracks. These high-performance patio doors will continue to slide easily and freely with only a little regular maintenance to keep the tracks clear and clean.
Myth #2: Sliding patio doors are bulky and ugly
Again, this is something that comes from older styles of sliding doors. Modern doors are sleek with slimmer frames than older versions. The frames give you a lot of freedom when it comes to the look of your doors and can be custom made for you with your choice of material, colour and finish.
Myth #3: Sliding patio doors leak when it rains
Clear View manufacture sliding patio doors to exacting standards and specifications and modern patio doors have extremely good weatherproof qualities. The installation of patio doors plays a big part in how weatherproof they will be, so Clear View doors will be installed by our team of skilled door technicians to ensure optimum weather resistance.
Myth #4: Sliding patio doors are airtight
While unsuitable patio doors, fitted by unskilled fitters, may be either too draughty or too airtight for comfort, doors and windows manufactured and installed by Clear View will conform to all applicable standards for the design. Our fitters will install your doors with the utmost care and skill, making patio doors a good choice for comfortable living conditions.
