The 2nd most used opening in your home (patio doors) might be worth looking into an upgrade! Replacing old patio doors with folding doors can turn any house into a more functional, stylish place.


It's no wonder that these renovations have become so popular over time - they provide people both outdoor living space while protecting their homes from weather elements like rain or snow.


Here I will explore why replacing your singular functional sliding patio doors or even french doors may actually make sense to replace with the proper folding glass doors.

An Investment That Will Last

With the new generation of folding glass walls, there are many benefits that come with owning them. They can be opened and closed easily from either side increasing your home space and home value.


These new designs are actually much safer and last much longer than traditional patio doors that consistently need repairs after a few years making them a great investment.

New Tech vs. Old Traditional

We've touched base on this before with traditional sliding glass doors breaking down only after a few years. The lock seams to stop working, the door seems to get heavier over time or maybe it's the rust between the rails where the glass door slides.


With modern technology, sliding door systems are more efficient to not only last longer but to operate effortlessly.
