Why Choose Patio Doors?
Patio doors are a great way to add a statement to any home. There are a plethora of options to choose from. Whether you determine that swinging doors are right for your home or you would rather go with sliding doors, you can add a hint of elegance to your home’s decor with patio doors.
Just as you have several options at the type of patio doors for your home, you also have options at the types of materials your doors are made from. Choose from vinyl, aluminum, wood, or fiberglass patio doors. Each one comes with its own advantages.
Vinyl patio doors are built to last and can withstand even the harshest weather conditions. These types of doors are less expensive than their fiberglass and wood doors counterparts, but still just as energy efficient.
Aluminum patio doors are the least expensive patio door. However, because they are lightweight, these types of patio doors are also the least energy-efficient. Aluminum doors are not a good choice if you are looking to retain heat in the winter or keep your home cool during the summer. They also tend to dent and scratch more easily than the other patio doors.
Wood patio doors have a stylish look and can be painted or stained to match your specific style. They are energy-efficient, however, they require regular maintenance to keep them beautiful year after year.
Fiberglass patio doors are the more expensive of patio doors, but with many benefits. Not only are they energy-efficient, but they can weather any type of outdoor conditions. These types of doors require little or no maintenance and can be easily customized and designed to match the exterior of your home.
Are Your Patio Doors Energy-Efficient?
Patio doors are more energy-efficient now than those of days past. By choosing the right door frame and patio glass, you can make your patio doors work for you. Choose a double or triple-pane window with a high energy efficiency rating. This will aid in your energy savings by keeping the cold air out during the winter while being gentle on your air conditioner in the summer.
How to Care for Your Patio Doors?
Caring for your patio doors is relatively easy. Follow the steps below to keep your patio doors looking beautiful for years to come.
