Are You Considering New Patio Doors?
If you’re a homeowner, you probably already know how popular patio doors are. Not only do they provide convenient access, they can completely transform how much sun a room gets, how large a room feels, and even how nice a home looks from the outside.
Unfortunately, old patio doors don’t offer the many energy and environmental benefits that modern patio doors do. In fact, if you have old patio doors that suffer from heat loss and leakage, having new patio doors installed may be just what you need to give your home a fast facelift and energy efficiency makeover.
Patio Door Styles and Materials
We install the most popular types and styles of patio doors. This includes:
Sliding patio doors, which are probably the most popular type of patio door, and also called “gliding doors.”. Sliding doors typically consist of two or more panels, with at least one of the panels being positioned on a track on which it can slide back and forth. Sliding patio doors are popular because they don’t take up any room space and they let in a lot of light.
Swinging patio doors, which are also known as “hinged patio doors,” work in the same way that regular interior and exterior doors do. Typically they have full-view glass panels or French door styling, and they are often hung in pairs.
Folding patio doors, which open accordion-style and offer a large opening area that can be neatly stacked out of the way. This type of folding door system slides on an overhead track and is often available in several styles, ranging from two panels to eight panels.
Patio doors come in a wide range of materials. What type of material you should choose depends on why you’re getting patio doors and what’s most important to you. For instance:
Fiberglass patio doors offers excellent durability, excellent energy efficiency, and the look of real wood without the upkeep. In fact, they offer all of the benefits that fiberglass windows do.
Vinyl patio doors offer excellent energy efficiency, are very durable, require minimal maintenance, and offer many of the other benefits that vinyl windows do.
Wood patio doors offer a look of style and elegance that can rarely be matched by other types of doors, and they come in many types of wood, including cherry, mahogany, pine and oak.
In addition, different coatings and specialty glass options (like UV coatings and low E glass) can make a huge difference in improving energy efficiency.
