Benefits of Sliding Glass Patio Doors

Sliding glass doors, also known as patio doors, are visually appealing and offer homeowners a variety of practical features. Sliding glass doors are designed to open and close easily, with one panel gliding horizontally in front of the other. Since sliding glass doors do not open outward like hinged doors, they can readily fit into tight spaces and can be opened and closed without causing obstructions. Sliding glass doors give your home a fresh and open feeling as they fill your rooms with soft, natural sunlight. Our replacement doors are energy-efficient, durable, and resistant to strong damaging solar rays. With our easy glide technology, your sliding glass doors will work flawlessly, allowing your family easy access to the terrace or patio for all kinds of family celebrations, barbecues, and parties.

Features of Exterior Sliding Glass Doors

Outdoor Replacement Vinyl Sliding Patio Door
  • Our sliding glass patio doors are made with highly durable frames that are easy to clean and virtually maintenance-free.
  • Sliding glass doors are not only great for newly built homes but will also work well in any home remodeling project.
  • Our sliding glass doors are cast using a hollow-core, multi-chambered extrusion process. This means that their sturdy construction will make them more energy-efficient and weather-tight than comparable products.
  • Custom welded corners are weather-tight and resistant to solar damage.
  • With your choice of double-pane tempered glass, available in thicknesses including 3/4", 7/8", and 1 inch, your sliding glass doors are sure to keep cold air out and reduce your home heating costs.
  • Our sliding glass doors are designed with a heavy-duty steel roller assembly which runs quietly on a stainless-steel track. Sound dampening technology effectively reduces sound transmission from outside.
  • Our sliding glass doors are glazed on the interior, creating a weather seal while allowing easy replacement of window glass from the inside.

Sliding Glass Door Cost Factors

The majority of sliding door systems consist of 2 glass panels and the door framing. The door and frame construction type and frame materials affect the total cost of a sliding glass door. Choosing energy-efficient door glass and framing, impact-resistant glass, triple panels, grid additions, and/or other upgrades naturally adds to the materials costs. Advanced styles like Folding Glass Doors, Telescoping Glass Doors, and others cost more. Additionally, custom-sizing or styling can significantly increase the cost of your sliding glass replacement doors.

Here are some key points to keep in mind about costs when ordering a sliding glass door. Starting with this information can help you narrow your search to the best sliding glass doors Utah has to offer for your needs and vision at a price that fits the budget you have set for the project.

Construction Type

The total width is typically about 6 feet wide. The average cost of a basic model sliding glass door system of this configuration is around $300. Comparatively large sliding glass doors sometimes cost up to $1,000 or more. Pre-hung models that come with the glass already in the frame, ready to install all in one piece, can cost more.

Installation Preparation Costs

To prepare for your sliding glass door installation, first, your installers will remove the existing door. Often, aging sliding door systems have developed air leaks causing drafts in houses, and/or the door latches no longer work properly to secure the home.If your existing door has these or other functionality problems, the interior framing and other components of the door system may need to be removed and replaced. This means that two industry-certified installers must do the job, to remove the glass panels, frame, and jamb safely and efficiently.

Altering the Structure for a Different Size Sliding Door

If you plan to replace your existing sliding door with one of the same size, the structural work has already been done. The space will accommodate the height and width of your new sliding glass door. But, if you select a sliding glass door that is a different size than your current one, a different framing unit must be installed. Preparing the wall structure for a new frame will raise the total cost of your project. Also factor in the cost for pulling a permit for the construction work, to ensure the altered space is structurally strong and well ventilated.

Door Frame Materials

Today’s advanced home improvement product engineering innovations allow homeowners to choose from a vast selection of sliding glass door styles and functional benefits. Glass panel designs and frame materials are available in a wide array of high-tech options. For either traditional or modern home styles, there are abundant choices of configurations. Many can be produced from either wood, clad wood, aluminum, or highly energy-efficient vinyl door framing.

Door Style

Advanced Window Products offers a wide range of sliding glass door styles to meet varying durability and style requirements. The pricing varies between styles and between sizes, degrees of complexity, types of glass, framing materials, and design choices.

Glass Type

The kind of glass you select can raise the cost of your sliding glass door replacement project. Designing your sliding door with high-performance glass for maximum energy efficiency increases the cost. Using impact-resistant glass, high levels of UV protection, tempered glass, or textured glass also raises the cost. Doors with double glass panels or thicker panels can add to the upfront cost. But, remember energy-efficient doors can help reduce your costs for heating and cooling significantly for decades to come!

Adding Screens

If you want a wide view of the gorgeous Utah scenery and natural light pouring into your home, a sliding glass door delivers these amazing lifestyle benefits. But, you probably do not want to give curious little Salt Lake Valley creatures wide access to your home. Add a sliding screen door to your project to remedy this issue. The extra cost is typically around $150.

Adding Grids

You can even more fully customize your sliding glass door by adding decorative and functional grids, to mimic multi-pane glass doors.
