Sliding Doors in Rhode Island

Sliding doors were never front of mind until I became a homeowner in Rhode Island earlier this year. When I lived in my apartment, we had a sliding glass door to our deck that always got stuck when it was half way open. I never gave it thought – probably because I didn’t own it.

Now I am a proud owner of a home and the home’s sliding door. Don’t get me wrong – this door isn’t the worst door ever, but I do have some gripes. The glass part of the door is very heavy and doesn’t glide smooth. Additionally, every time I close the screen, it bounces back open – opening up the possibility that my cat Isabelle can execute her plan of escape. Finally, it isn’t the prettiest thing ever and the lock is stubborn.

Given I purchased my home earlier this year, I am a little short on cash. Even taking this into consideration, I am now seriously considering replacing the unit. What was the tipping point you ask? I was at a BBQ in Cranston, Rhode Island yesterday and opened a sliding glass door that opened so smooth it felt like it was floating across the rail. After experiencing this moment of sliding nirvana, I decided that it was worthwhile investing in this home improvement because it is a part of my home that I utilize EVERY DAY!
