Owning a home can be incredibly stressful, but it can also be really exciting. You have the opportunity to explore a variety of home improvement projects and take steps to make your home more “you”. One of the most valuable projects you’ll do as a homeowner is installing new windows and new doors.

If you opt for sliding patio doors to replace the standard door you currently have, you’ll immediately experience a slew of benefits. Other than the obvious aesthetic appeal, sliding glass doors offer plenty of perks that the American Window Products team can help make a reality for you.

Energy Efficiency Gains

Owning a home is expensive, there’s no way around it. But, sliding glass doors can help keep your wallet a bit more full. Sliding doors are constructed of large panes of glass that run from your floor to ceiling, and this glass does a great job of insulating your home during every season. A well insulated home means a lower energy bill! Along with maintaining a desirable internal temperature, sliding glass doors will block sound and keep unwanted rain and debris outside where it belongs.

Air Flow

If you want to fully enjoy a beautiful day in Jacksonville, open your sliding patio doors and let the breeze flow in and out. It’s perfect for a dinner party, hanging out by the pool or simply reading a book. The options are endless, and the added comfort and versatility from sliding glass doors is, too.


Thanks to the massive size of the glass in sliding patio doors, you’ll have beautiful views for days! Whether you want to look out at your garden, watch your kids play in the pool or host an open-air luncheon, you won’t be able to get enough of your new sliding glass doors.

Save Space

If you’re looking for a great way to make your home feel larger, sliding glass doors are the way to go. Because of their sliding motion (opposed to the traditional open and close mechanism associated with a hinge), these doors don’t take up any additional space when they’re opened and closed.

Let the Light In

Natural light is one of the best ways to accentuate the decor in your home. It helps save electricity and honestly, it just gives a space a sense of calmness. Sliding glass doors allow natural light to pour in.


Sliding glass doors aren’t just durable, they’re incredibly accessible. Sliding the doors open and closed, opposed to pushing or pulling them, makes entering and exiting your home a seamless process. It’s great if you’re carrying groceries, walking the dogs or running around with the kids.

If you think sliding glass doors are a no-brainer for your home, give the American Window Products team a call. We’ll walk you through the incredible benefits, provide a seamless installation and always be around for any maintenance you might need. When it comes to choosing your next door, you have a million choices. But when it comes to choosing the company to install that door, there’s one obvious choice: American Window Products.
