Sliding glass doors are great ways to open up your home to the outside world on a nice day. They can let in plenty of fresh air while giving up very little floor space. However, If you've ever spent a summer anywhere in Southwest Florida, you know that thunderstorms can quickly drop inches of rain in just a few minutes and can cause water to infiltrate through a leaking sliding glass door.
Some of the most common causes of a leaking sliding glass door include a dirty or broken track or broken wheels. A sliding glass patio door will work well for a long time, without any issues, as long as it's correctly installed and maintained.
Fortunately, water infiltration from heavy rainfall, a tropical storm, or a hurricane can be prevented when you have a sliding glass door that's properly installed and designed with weather-resistant properties.
