What is a Sliding Patio Door?

Sliding patio doors differ from French doors entirely by function. While a French door swings inward or outward, a sliding glass door moves on a track of rollers in the sill to open horizontally. Sliding doors seem nearly ubiquitous in homes due to their convenience of use and space-saving function. Homeowners in need of a reliable Topeka sliding door replacement or installation should look no further than The Window Source of Kansas, serving Kansas City, Manhattan, and surrounding communities.

This style of door doesn’t intrude into the space when left open, so it’s ideal for areas where normal doors would impede foot traffic or furniture. Sliding patio doors also offer excellent ventilation when the operating panel is in the fully open position.

At The Window Source, our Topeka sliding door replacement service offers double and triple panel versions of patio doors for varying levels of insulation. Both versions use panes of tempered safety glass within the door to add an extra level of insulation. The panel frames feature a durable, interlocking meeting rail that is constructed from heavy-gauge steel to ensure maximum home security. 

Sliding glass doors from the Window Source of Kansas feature solid brass in the rolling system and large, open views, allowing for increased ease of use. Choosing us for Topeka sliding glass door replacement means your investment will last for years to come – each purchase includes a transferable lifetime warranty and a stout anodized-aluminum sill to cover the threshold.
