How to Choose a Patio Door for Your Home

If you're looking for a new patio door for your home, you've come to the right place. From a contemporary aesthetic to a timeless look, there's a patio door that fits your needs. Browse our selection of stylish options below, and find the best fit for your home. Whether it's the style of your home or the size of your patio, you'll find what you need at a price you can afford.

Consider the materials. Different types of doors have different textures, so choose the material that complements the overall look of your home. Other important details to consider include the color, texture, and hardware on the door. Many patio doors are available pre-finished, so you'll be able to customize your door to match your home's style. You'll also need to consider the size and shape of the opening. Patio doors are often bigger than other types of doors, so make sure you take measurements.

When it comes to security, your patio door should be paired with a lock. Choose from lever, button, deadbolt, or other locking mechanism. It's best to have a lock fitted on the outside to prevent unauthorized entry. Make sure you've also installed a metal reinforcement around the door after installing the lock. And don't forget to install hinges on the inside. Patio doors come with a variety of features and can be customized to fit any style of home.

Choose energy-efficient glass for your patio door. A properly glazed patio door is not only attractive but also energy-efficient. Glass for patio doors has different performance credentials and can be crafted to achieve the goals of a building. A major authority on glass is the National Fenestration Rating Council, which operates a voluntary program of certification for manufacturers. They test glass for energy efficiency and other criteria. The NFRC also provides performance certifications for the glass.

A traditional French style patio door opens into the garden or patio. A double-paned door opens onto the garden and patio. A French-style patio door features energy-efficient glass that keeps the home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Its tight weather-stripping eliminates drafts. Patio doors are available in various styles, colors, and materials, including primed for painting or unfinished. Patio doors are an excellent way to add style to your home and create a comfortable living space.

Pella makes multi-slide patio doors that are both durable and stylish. Many of their models can be double-sliding, which offers an expansive panoramic view. And they provide an elegant transition from indoors to the outdoors. If you have a large deck or patio, consider installing a multi-slide patio door. It will allow you to enjoy your outdoor space and save space, while also giving you more room for relaxing. With the Pella lifestyle series, you can mix and match panel configurations and stacking options.

There are two basic types of patio doors: bi-fold and multi-slide. While bi-fold patio doors are more convenient, they're more expensive and require more maintenance. A bifold patio door can replace a section of a wall while still offering a beautiful view. The bifold door is the newest type of patio door on the market. It consists of panels that fold back over each other. A bifold patio door can also provide a more spacious feel to your home.

If you're looking for an elegant, high-security patio door, a sliding system can provide the solution. The sliding system operates like an accordion and slides on an overhead track, neatly folding away for complete access. The sliding system comes in many configurations and can accommodate two to eight leaves. For a stylish and practical look, a sliding patio door can also be made from any of five materials, including vinyl, steel, aluminum, fiberglass, and wood.

Another style of patio door is the French door. These doors open outwards and are primarily hinged. Sometimes they are referred to as French windows or doors. Their leaf size is typically 900mm each, but can be up to 1800mm wide when both doors are open. They are ideal for homes with smaller gardens or properties, since they allow the whole width of the opening. When choosing a patio door, be sure to ask the manufacturer about the size of your patio space.

Frenchwood(r) sliding doors can add charm to your home. These doors have the same aesthetic appeal as standard French doors, but they are made to slide. Besides their large opening, they don't take up floor space. This type of door is also available in a wide range of interior finishes, including ready-to-paint styles. The interior handle is available in several colors, and the frame is covered in a rigid vinyl sheath for minimal maintenance and attractive aesthetics. Some doors come with reach-out locks for added security.
