Replacement Patio Doors Help Extend Your Living Space
Summer is here. What better way to celebrate the beautiful weather than with a new patio door! A trendy addition to homes during the summer months, patio doors help extend your home’s ambiance to the great outdoors, visually expanding and brightening your living space. The perfect patio door can flood your home with natural light, while also adding style and great views of your yard. Whether you are hosting birthday parties, family barbecues, or just enjoying s’mores over the bonfire at the end of a long week, a functional new patio door is the perfect addition.
The front door of your home isn’t the only exterior door that should have some “wow” factor behind it. With so many options to choose from, you are able to select the patio door that best fits your home while also being energy efficient. A new energy efficient patio door provides comfort while consuming less energy and keeping your home at a consistent temperature. Upgrading your patio door not only benefits the interior of the home, but the enhanced beauty can also add value to the exterior of your home.
When it comes to your home, what kind of patio door would best suit your home and style? We’ve highlighted some popular options below that help give you a better perspective of what patio doors can bring to your home!
Sliding Doors – Great views with a French or contemporary style. Sliding patio doors offer maximum visibility into your backyard. They are the most popular option for homes or apartments with limited space or balconies, as sliding doors maximize your space, unlike hinged or folding doors. Sliding doors also offer the option of a screen door. This gives you the opportunity to leave the door open to enjoy the beautiful summer breeze while making sure pesky bugs can’t get in and the family pet can’t get out! Sliding doors also provide better insulation, as there are fewer areas for air to penetrate. In addition to being one of the most cost-efficient options, sliding doors are offered in a variety of different styles that won’t break the bank.
Hinged Doors – With more of a traditional look, hinged doors can be oriented to swing inwards or outwards. They generally have a wider clear opening allowing you more room to go in and out and better fresh air flow. With hinged doors, you get the flexibility of having multiple style options when it comes to color, finish, and decorative glass, giving you the opportunity to have your desired look. One of the most popular hinged styles is French doors, as they are an elegant choice that can be a focal point of any room. We also have contemporary styles available as well.
Folding Doors – If you are looking for a real statement piece, then a folding patio door is the perfect option. Each door panel stacks against the next using a track system that lets the panels open and close naturally, giving your living space a more open feeling. If space is not an issue, this style door can include anywhere from two to eight panels that fold neatly, inside or out. Folding patio doors offer the perfect entertainment space that easily transitions your get together from indoors to out, while still giving you an incredible view, even if they are closed.
