As a company providing residential glass in Hamilton, OH, we get questions from folks all the time asking which of our products we would most highly recommend for their homes. While we believe all of our products offer a wide range of benefits for most homes, we must say that with summer right around the corner, we encourage all of our valued customers to consider investing in glass patio doors for their home.
Glass patio doors offer many different advantages, ranging from the aesthetic to the practical. Here are six reasons to invest in glass patio doors for your home, from your source for residential glass in Hamilton, OH:
- Natural light: Do you wish your living room, kitchen or even office space had more natural light to work with? If so, installing glass patio doors will kill two birds with one stone: they will act both as a window for your living space, and as an easy entryway into your backyard. Natural light has been proven to positively affect both your mood and your health.
- Seamless entertaining: If you plan on entertaining a lot this summer, then you will not want to be confined to only indoors or only outdoors, and you also will not want to create a physical barrier between different groups of guests. Opening up your patio doors gives guests the choice of whether they want to be outside or inside, while still including everyone in the party.
- Outdoor lifestyle: Here in Ohio, we endure some pretty harsh winters, which means that, when summer rolls around, we want to get outside as much as we can. Of course, work, household chores and other responsibilities make it impossible to spend all day outside, but keeping your patio doors propped open throughout the mild summer days can certainly serve as the next best thing.
- Easy supervision: If your kids are at that age where they want some privacy and independence, but also still need light supervision, then patio doors can present the perfect compromise. Your kids and their friends can enjoy being alone in the backyard, but the easy view offered by patio doors will still allow you to occasionally and subtly check in on them.
- Energy efficiency: You might worry that floor to ceiling glass would present some strong insulation challenges, but in reality there are now plenty of high energy efficient options on the market. In fact, some are so good that installing new patio doors just might save you money on your utility bills.
- Sell your house: Finally, if you plan to possibly sell your home within the next few years, it is never too early to look for ways to increase its value and attractiveness to potential buyers. Glass patio doors offer just the sort of “wow” factor that plays well at house showings.
