Glass doors are also a great way of adding natural light into a room without adding more windows. The light reflects through the glass and illuminates the surrounding walls. It′s the same as having windows except the window is in the door. The main factors needed to give your house more space is transparency, light and reflection. Using these three factors you can give your home an affordable make over without having to change it too much. It works perfectly for the person who doesn′t enjoy renovation and building.
Next, you have to decide whether you want a retrofit frame or a replacement frame. If the old frame is flush with the exterior material, such as in the case of stucco, then you want to get the retrofit frame, which comes with the outside fin. That will eliminate the need to trim the outside. If you have brick or siding surrounding the opening, then you need to get a replacement frame and trim the outside yourself. You can use wood, vinyl, or other composite materials available in most major hardware store chains. You also need to measure the depth of the old frame. The majority of vinyl replacement doors have a frame depth of 4 3/4". Most door openings, when framed, have a depth of 5 1/2" to the innermost surface of the wall, whether it′s drywall, plaster, or whatever else. Therefore, when you install the new door, you will need to add some sort of trim product to build the inside of the door frame so it is flush with the wall surface.
Once the door is on its side, you can closely examine the wheels and the track. Most commonly, you will find the wheels are full of soot and debris, and the track is also likely very dirty. To clean the wheels, use compressed air and needle tip pliers. Be careful to pull every last hair out of the wheel bearings. It is wise to be diligent in this step, so you don′t have to make a habit of this process. Once the wheels are completely clean, spray a little bit of penetrating oil into the wheel bearings, spinning the wheel as you apply the oil. (The best choice for the oil is DuPont′s Teflon non-stick dry film lubricant.) It is equally important to clean the track that the wheels rest on. Use damp paper towels to remove the grit and dirt, and then spray the penetrating oil along the track so it is well-applied. Use a clean paper towel to ensure it is evenly applied.
A door doesn′t have to be made of wood. If you want to add both beauty and value to any interior design project for the home or office, take a fresh approach by using sliding glass doors. Sliding doors are available in a multitude of colors, frames and finishes. You might be surprised at the functionality they can add to a room, such as improving lighting, privacy and space conservation. Sliding doors are also a decorative way to add an additional room to a loft or basement.
