Benefits of Sliding Glass Doors
Whether you're remodeling your home or building a new one, there are a variety of things you need to keep in mind during the design phase. How can you make your home as energy-efficient as possible, yet still aesthetically pleasing to your family? You may not realize it, but glass is a great natural insulator, and sliding glass doors with a double pane allow the cushion of argon gas between them to keep your home toasty in the winter and cool in the summer. Our energy efficient glass reflects a high amount of heat, and when installed correctly by the professionals at Advanced Window Products in Utah, they are weather tight -- not only keeping out the rain and snow but also reducing the noise pollution from lawn mowers, passing vehicles and other outdoor sounds.

How to Measure Your Door for Glass Size
When you're replacing a sliding glass door, it's important to measure accurately so you can get a replacement that will fit like a glove. The key factor is finding the rough opening size, which is the horizontal distance between the floor and the bottom of the header, as well as the vertical distance between studs. While homeowners can complete these measurements, it's often best to have a licensed and trusted contractor or one of our certified installation experts at Advanced Window Products in Utah take the measurements to ensure you're getting exactly what you need.
