« on: September 12, 2015, 09:36:24 AM »
Patio doors can add value to and improve the overall look of your home. But with all the options available, how do you know your selecting the right patio doors for your house? The following 5 tips will help you navigate through the process and ensure you chose the perfect patio doors.

Tip #1: Consider wall and furniture placement.
French doors, as well as other swinging doors, need adequate room to open properly. If you have chosen a patio door without first considering the location of walls and furniture, you may be disappointed when it just doesn’t fit right. These factors are extremely important and shouldn’t be overlooked. If you find that the space is a bit too tight, consider a single swinging door with a stationary panel.

Tip #2: Consider the Doorway Width

Patio doors are a wonderful way to bring the feel of your outdoor living space into your home. Because of this, you should consider choosing a doorway with a wide width. This will create a stronger connection and better access to the outdoors. Using multiple swing doors or a folding door systems can provide you with the desired outcome.

Tip #3: Select the Right Glass

Glass is a major element in any patio door, and selecting the right one can make or break the overall comfort of your home. That is why it is important to choose glass that is efficient and has the desired benefits you are looking for. For example, decorative tempered glass adds style and privacy, while still allowing natural light to shine through. Low-E glass protects against UV light fading, while lowering your energy bills. You can also look at other options, such as grills and blinds, that give you complete control over view and light.

Tip #4: Material is Important

When choosing patio doors, you must consider the material that the door is made out of. ETO doors, for example, are available in a wide array of materials; each with its own positive and negative aspects. Look for a material that is easy to maintain and durable. Clad wood, fiberglass, vinyl and aluminum won’t need painting and weather well.

Tip #5: Appearance is Important

Choose patio doors with a style and quality that matches and complements your home. If your home’s siding is cedar, for example, you should select a solid wood door rather than one made from vinyl.
