3 Things To Know Before Replacing Your Patio Doors

Whether you are renovating your whole home or simply replacing your outdated, drafty patio doors, you need to take into account a number of factors — including the door design, available space and level of energy efficiency. 

3 Things To Know Before Replacing Your Patio Doors

Here, a certified door replacement contractor sheds light on these three considerations.

  1. Design. One of the focal points of a good patio door is its design, and this entails its functionality and accessibility restrictions. French, sliding and biparting patio doors all come with their unique advantages. For example, sliding patio doors are great additions to homes where space is limited, while French patio doors offer a more traditional look because they operate on hinges. Biparting patio doors, on the other hand, present a modern-day flair to homes, thanks to their large expanses of glass.
  1. Space. When in the market for a patio door, think about what your outdoor space looks like. For patios and balconies with limited space, sliding glass or inswing hinged patio doors are a great choice. Outswing doors go well in interiors where space is at a premium and roof overhang is present. For homes that open to gorgeous views of the mountains or landscaped gardens, biparting doors are the top pick.
  1. Energy Efficiency. Finally, energy efficiency should be thoroughly considered when selecting your new patio doors. Wood and vinyl are popular options that offer a decent level of energy efficiency, but more and more homeowners are opting for Fibrex® doors.
