Eastern Shore Sliding Glass Doors

Versatile Sliding Glass Doors for Lewes Homes

As the “first town in the first state,” Lewes is home to plenty of historic and traditional homes, yet all along the Eastern Shore and even in Lewes, beautifully constructed new homes continue to appear. Homes along the Eastern Shore, whether vintage or new construction, have a traditional appeal. Consisting of two full-length glass panels, one of which glides open along a track, sliding glass doors can be styled to suit new and historic homes alike. From Milton to Rehoboth Beach, sliding glass doors allow Eastern Shore homeowners to take in the natural beauty of their coastal surroundings.

Eastern Shore Climate Recommendations

Homeowners along Delaware’s Eastern Shore experience all four seasons, with year-round precipitation. Summers here are hot and humid although winters tend to be milder than other parts of the state farther inland thanks to the area’s location by the Atlantic Ocean and Delaware Bay. That waterfront proximity brings salty, coastal air that can impact your patio doors over time. Consider durable fiberglass sliding patio doors.

Low-E Protection

Low-E Protection

Get year-round protection with Low-E insulating glass. The added protection helps provide balanced insulation from cool winters and hot summers.

Salty Air

Salty Air

 In coastal climates close to water, your patio doors are more vulnerable to corrosion from the salt in the air. The closer your home is to the water, the more susceptible you are to the effects. Consider fiberglass to maintain sliding glass door integrity.

Durable Materials

Durable Materials

Thanks to its location in the mild subtropical climate zone, the Eastern Shore experiences seasonal fluctuations in temperatures. Wood with exterior aluminum cladding, vinyl, and fiberglass are low-maintenance materials that can stand up to all seasons.
