Potential Issues With Sliding Glass Door Installations, Green, Ohio

Installing sliding glass doors is a precise project for the everyday homeowner. If done incorrectly, a number of costly issues can arise. Murphy Home Improvement, one of the top remodeling companies in Cincinnati, OH, knows that any home improvement can be tricky. They have been in the business for more than 30 years and have installed their fair share of doors and windows. Below are just a few common issues their home renovation experts have found when sliding glass doors aren’t installed properly.

Home Security

First and foremost, if your sliding glass door isn’t installed correctly, this poses a safety concern for your home. A precariously hung door is easier for a burglar to open, putting your inhabitants and belongings at risk.

Utility Bills

Water Damage

Particularly in areas that experience frequent wet weather, you run the risk of letting water into your home. This can lead to warped floors, rot and mold. Not only can the latter make humans and pets sick, but this can also result in costly additional repairs down the road.
