Sliding glass doors are a common upgrade for homes in the Tampa Bay area, and for several good reasons.
It’s just as important to choose the right sliding glass doors as it is to choose the right company to install them, though. That’s because high-quality doors, properly installed, can help create an amazing view, increase your home’s energy efficiency, and offer greater protection from damaging wind, flying debris, and even forced entry.
Tampa Bay’s punishing sun, rain, and powerful winds, can take their toll on bargain sliding glass doors, leading to water damage and toxic mold. But you don’t have to fall victim to these issues.
Reece Builders has spent the last forty years installing the nation’s top impact resistant, energy efficient windows, from South Tampa to St. Petersburg and everywhere in between. And our quality, in both materials and workmanship, is demonstrated by our customers’ satisfaction.
Installing the right sliding glass door can be the deciding factor in whether your home survives a hurricane because when powerful winds enter your home through a broken sliding glass door, the massive increase in pressure is more likely to lift your roof off of your home. An impact resistant sliding glass door can help prevent that.
Our sliding glass doors are manufactured by bonding a sheet of tempered glass to either side of a high-tech polymer inner layer. This reinforces your door with tremendous strength, and the polymer prevents the glass from shattering, helping to minimize or even eliminate damage and injuries caused by wind, water, and debris entering your home.
Just how strong is our glass? Our impact resistant sliding glass doors will survive an impact equal to that of a 2x4 driven by hurricane-force winds at an extreme 50 feet per second! While your home will never be hurricane proof, replacing your sliding glass door with ours will offer significantly greater protection from hurricane winds, flying debris, and even forced entry.
Although Floridians are not faced with hurricanes everyday, we are faced with sky high energy bills. This is another area where our doors outperform others, and that’s because of their exceptional insulation value.
Our construction, which consists of layers of glass and polymer, and in some cases, multiple panes with an insulating pocket of air in between, our sliding glass doors are astonishingly effective at maintaining your desired indoor temperature. They provide an energy-efficiency rating that meets or exceeds Energy Star guidelines, and even block outside noise and nearly 100% of harmful UV rays.
