cheryyl. glass door. February 26th , 2018.
It seems you almost can′t build a house over 5000 SF any more without including a multi-slide door. What used to be a luxury is now almost a requirement. This being the case it appears that more and more consumers want to update their existing homes with these products. Their popularity cannot be denied so I feel the best way to discuss these doors are in terms of pro′s and cons. Then, you the homeowner can decide whether the decision is right for you or not.
After you′ve done all this, reinstall the door. You should notice right away that the door is much easier to slide, and should require significantly less effort. If for any reason the door is still difficult to roll, it is likely one of the following reasons: either your wheels are completely burned out, or your sliding glass door is sitting too high on the track, and is thus hitting the top plate of the door frame. If your wheels are burned out, unfortunately you′ll have to call the manufacture of your sliding glass door and request new wheels. If, on the other hand, your door is hitting the top plate of your door frame, you can adjust this by finding the screw holes at the very bottom of you sliding glass door. On most sliding glass doors, there are two screws which can be turned with either a flathead screwdriver or an alan wrench. Turn to the right to raise the door, or turn to the left to lower the door.
If you think about it, when a person tells you that the room behind a solid wooden door is forbidden you will take it seriously because you can′t see what is on the other side. If someone says that the room behind the glass door is forbidden you wouldn′t find it as intimidating. Why? It′s because you can see through the glass. You can see what is on the other side. Keeping that in mind you realise how much more space you really have. The glass doors also give a modern vibe to the setting of the room and house. Most modern elements revolve around space and minimalism.
While you′re at it, clean up all the "mating-edges" of the door. This is where the sliding door meets with any other surface of the door frame. A general rule of thumb is to simply wipe down anything that looks dirty. Remember, even if the dirt is not necessarily in the track itself, it can eventually fall to the track causing your door to require another wipe down. If you notice any mating edges that feel sticky, take a paper towel and spray some oil into it, then wipe the oil onto the sticky surfaces.
