Making A Window Into A Door

Have you ever heard this? “Hey! You make a better door than a window!” If you’re over the age of 30, you probably have, especially if you’ve ever accidentally stood in front of the television while your dad was trying to watch a game. Well, if you have a window that would be much better as a sliding glass door or French door, it may be time for some remodeling.

Have you ever heard this? “Hey! You make a better door than a window!” If you’re over the age of 30, you probably have, especially if you’ve ever accidentally stood in front of the television while your dad was trying to watch a game. Well, if you have a window that would be much better as a sliding glass door or French door, it may be time for some remodeling.

The beautiful thing about your home is that it is yours. You can do anything you want with it–well, as long as the code enforcement officer says it’s okay. And one of the most cost-effective remodeling jobs you can do is turn a window into a door.

Doors offer almost everything a window can offer, and more.

  • If you want lots of light to come in, a door can do that better than a window.

  • If you want to be able to open the house up and let lots of air in, a door wins every time.

  • If you want to have access to an area of your yard, walking out a door is way easier than climbing out the window.

  • If you want to be able to bring large pieces of furniture into your home, new French doors will open up a giant space to move through. Your window can’t compete with that.

But, putting in a door can create some problems if is not installed professionally.

  • A certified installer will make sure that your new doors will be sealed properly, so that you can take full advantage of the latest in energy efficiency.

  • A professional will make sure everything is plumb and that there is no way for moisture to get in and cause warping or mold. You’ll also know that the door is going to open without getting jammed.

  • If, during installation, your new doors get dinged up, or the glass breaks, the installer will cover the costs of a replacement.

If you have a window that you think would make a beautiful location for new sliding glass doors or elegant French doors, Window Nation has a wide selection of options, colors, textures, and features. Let our Angie’s List Super Service award-winning team walk you through the processes from beginning to end, and help you get the perfect doors for your home.
