With winter in the rearview and spring in full swing, we’re as excited as you are to once again soak up the bright Colorado outdoors and enjoy patio season! Despite basking in these bright days, as Colorado locals we also know that our weather is full of surprises and isn’t always as accommodating as we’d like. During this time of transition, your best bet for taking advantage of the season is in the simple beauty of moving glass doors. With fair prices, expert installation, and the best options on the market, Gravina’s® offers bi-folded and sliding glass doors that are sure to suit your functional and stylistic needs no matter the weather.
Moving glass doors are one of the most sought-after features in today’s Colorado homes. If you’ve ever enjoyed watching the sun spread its warmth across a peaceful landscape, then you understand the benefit of uninterrupted views. Bi-folding and sliding doors not only provide grand views — they are also one of the main additions homeowners use to maximize the flow of natural light within their homes.
The main difference between bifold and sliding glass doors is how they are built. Sliding doors consist of two or more large panels that glide sideways, one behind the other. Although one pane will always remain closed, the easy-to-use sliding operation allows you to control the size of the opening to fit your needs. Bifold doors are also made up of several glass panes but work like an accordion, with each pane connected by hinges that fold back on one side to open up the space in full. While both styles share similar benefits, you’ll find significant differences to factor in when choosing the right door for your home.
First, consider how much room you have to add a new door. If you can maximize your space look no further than Andersen’s Folding Outswing Doors, which can be fitted into walls up to 10’ tall and 48’ wide. With a top-hung system made for easy operation, these massive moving glass panes can open from left, right, or center to elegantly frame your open view and provide a stately wall of light when closed. You can rest easy knowing that your home is secure, as most include multiple security locks and features to prevent break-ins for peace of mind.
You don’t have to go big or go home to enjoy the benefits of moving glass doors! If you’re working with a smaller opening, Pella’s gliding doors are an excellent space-saving option for getting the most out of your backyard, patio, or deck. These doors come equipped with built-in blinds and shades for enhanced security, privacy, and everyday calm. Pella’s doors also come in wood, vinyl, and fiberglass varieties to match any decor arrangement or budget.
