Benefits of a Glass Glazed Door
Glazed doors are a great addition to any home. Advances in glazed external doors have meant that glass no longer poses the thermal insulation issues or security issues that it may have before.
Some of the many advantages of glazed doors include:
1. Natural Lighting
Glazed doors allow natural light to enter your home. This can brighten up living spaces and create a welcoming atmosphere in the front room. Worried about people seeing into your home?Frosted glass provides natural light as well as privacy!
2. Energy Efficiency
Many glazed external doors are designed with energy efficiency in mind. Glazed doors provide an excellent amount of thermal insulation that will keep your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
One of the most obvious benefits of glazed external doors is their aesthetics. Glazed doors are beautiful and provide homeowners with a light and welcoming interior. External glazed doors can come with different types of glass, depending on your choice of style; from single full glass doors to frosted glasspanes to bifold glass doors, there’s a style to suit every look!
4. Low Maintenance
Glazed doors are surprisingly low maintenance as well! You’ll find that the glass is easy to clean, doesn’t require any special treatments or paints, and will last years with the proper door maintenance.
Many homeowners are nervous to use delicate-looking glass on an exterior door. The possibility of breaking it might just seem too high. Luckily the advancements in glass-making technology have made glass much less likely to break. By heating the glass to high temperatures and chemically treating the glass, manufacturers have created “toughened glass”. Toughened glass is tougher and more weather resistant than regular glass, making it a great choice for external doors.
Limitations of a Glazed Door
While glazed doors do have loads of benefits, it’s always important to consider the limitations as well. This can give you a well-rounded view of glazed external doors, and help you make an informed decision as to whether to include them in your renovation.
Glass can be a target for intruders, who may notice the glass from the road and see an easy break-in. Though, as mentioned above, toughened glass provides exceptional strength compared to standard glass. This toughened glass is difficult to break, ensuring that your front door stays closed and your home stays safe.
Privacy can also be an issue when it comes to glass doors. because of this, glass doors are more often used for back gardens. Though there are also options to choose frosted glass panes for your front doors, allowing you to benefit from the light and avoid any nosy neighbours!
