You’re ready to make a change in your Pacific Beach, CA home! That’s exciting! As a homeowner, it’s up to you to decide what changes you are going to make and when. If you’ve recognized that your patio door is old and worn out, or if you simply want different things for that area of your home, folding glass doors are a great option. However, there are certain changes you are going to have to make in order to create the transition you want. Here are a few things to consider as you move forward with the process.
What size do you want?
You might be okay with the sliding patio door size that you have now and that’s great. You can certainly take that sliding door out and install folding glass doors to fit that opening. But when you make the replacement, it’s also the time to think about making other changes. Would you like a larger opening? More window area to see the beauty of your view? You can get a larger folding glass door to replace your sliding door in order to accommodate those needs and wants. It takes a little more doing to cut a bigger hole, but it’s often worth it in the end.
What might get in the way?
While you know you have to have furniture out of the way for French doors, since they swing in or out and block pathways, you might think folding glass doors are different. While they don’t get in the way like French doors do, you might still want a clear path way so you can go in and out of the doors wherever you please without having anything in the way. Plus, they can give you a great, uninterrupted view if there aren’t other things in the way within your Pacific Beach, CA home. Furniture can certainly be placed nearby, if you’d like, but consider if that’s how you want things to be or not and rearrange before you get the folding glass doors into place.
What qualities are important?
Just like any product, folding glass doors have a range of qualities and options. You should decide what’s important to you before you make a final purchase. You probably make energy efficiency a priority, for example, so you will want doors that will protect your home from drafts when you have the closed. You don’t want your utility bill to rise! In fact, you’d rather see it lower! Safety is also important so you will want doors that aren’t easy to break through. Consider the functions and qualities that are important to you before you start looking so you can find folding glass doors to match.
