Choosing a Patio Door

When replacing your patio door, there are a few steps that you should take to ensure that you will get the right fit. First, measure the height of the opening. Measure up from the top of the rough opening and go down to the sub-floor, which may be concrete or wood. If you are not sure how to properly measure, it is best to call a professional for help.

When choosing a new patio door, make sure that it is thermally efficient. Consider a two or three-panel design. These doors feature energy-smart glazing and decorative grille options. Many models of these doors feature a multipoint locking system, which is a great security feature. Lastly, be sure to look for weather stripping. This is very important for patio doors, because they are prone to water damage.

Another type of patio door is a French door, which does not swing inward like hinged doors. This type is not as wide as a hinged door, and may not be suitable for some homeowners. Moreover, a French patio door has hinges on each side of the frame, so you don't have to worry about a center support. You can also choose a Masonite steel patio door, which has built-in mini-blinds.

JELD-WEN offers many styles and designs of patio doors. Whether you're looking for a wood-framed or a fiberglass folding patio door, there's a door that will fit your home's style and budget. If you're looking for a high-end patio door that will withstand the elements and provide energy efficiency, you may want to consider a JELD-WEN Siteline patio door. These doors come in two-panel and six-panel multi-slide options.

While wood-framed patio doors are the most traditional style of patio door, there are plenty of modern designs to suit any decor. Fiberglass patio doors, for example, offer sleek looks with faux wood-inspired details. Other popular styles include a swinging patio door and a standard sliding glass door. Modern innovations include folding and multi-slide patio doors, and a wide selection of handles and hardware.

A steel patio door is a popular choice, as it provides strength and durability. These doors are also relatively inexpensive and require less maintenance. When properly installed, steel patio doors should not bow or warp. However, they may need more upkeep in a wet climate. A uPVC patio door may be a better option in these cases.

A hinged patio door, also known as a French door, is another popular style of patio door. These doors feature hinges in the center and feature a glass panel in the middle. In addition to offering aesthetic benefits, they are ideal for homes with high winds. These doors also have the added advantage of being double-doors, as the glass panels can be swung open and closed from the inside.

There are many benefits to installing sliding patio doors. Not only do they save space, they don't hinder the flow of a room. They also keep the door from swinging into furniture. Sliding doors are also easy to open and close and don't block light. Choosing between a sliding and folding patio door will depend on your budget and the layout of your home.
