Essential Facts About Patio Doors

There are many things to consider before installing a patio door. Since patio doors are designed in different ways and built from varying materials, it’s essential to study your options and understand all the basic information that you should know about these doors.

Why Should I Choose a Hinged Patio Door?

A hinged patio door is a beautiful addition to homes, particularly those with traditional designs. Its main advantage also comes with the wide opening it can provide. This usually makes it easier to move large furniture and appliances in and out of your home.

Why Should I Choose a Sliding Patio Door?

Sliding patio doors are typically recommended for homes with limited space. Since these doors slide horizontally along a track, they can be installed without worrying about having enough space that would allow them to open fully. That said, sliding patio doors are quite space-efficient. They look perfect in contemporary homes, too.

Is It Okay to Replace a Sliding Patio Door With a Hinged Patio Door or Vice Versa?

Yes, this is certainly doable. It can also be a great move if you want to change the design or look of your home. Just make sure to plan this thoroughly with your contractor. Prepare for any possible complications, and carefully weigh the pros and cons.

Are Patio Doors Secure?

Your patio door can be as secure as any door in your home. With all the sophisticated locking mechanisms that you can add to your patio door, you can ensure the safety and security of your home against intruders.

"We love our new windows. The install was painless even with moving around 3 dogs as the crew worked through the house. So glad we went with Anderson windows."
