An old and failing patio door not only looks unsightly but can also compromise your home’s security and safety. If you notice such signs as rot and other moisture damage on the framing material, cracks and gaps on the door, broken glass and fading paint, it means that the whole fixture is beyond repair and must be replaced as soon as possible.
Brewster Roofing LLC, a leading roof repair contractor, also specializes in door replacement. When it comes to patio doors, two options always come to mind. Read on to learn more about them.
Hinged French Patio Doors
Hinged French doors continue to improve the look and feel of homes across the country with its timeless and elegant design. They often come in pairs and are easily recognizable by the glass panes that extend along the length of each door. Designed with proportion and symmetry in mind, French doors also emphasize the need to let sunlight in and flood the interior.
Patio door and gutter companies recommend French doors if you want to give your home the illusion of space. Apart from the large glass area on both doors, the fact that it opens outward or inward helps establish a strong indoor-outdoor connection. The wide opening the French doors provide helps accommodate foot traffic.
Sliding Patio Doors
Sliding patio doors are the exact opposite of French doors when it comes to style. Sleek and contemporary, they operate by moving the doors along a horizontal track. That means less effort to open and close the patio doors without any worry of them sticking or jamming.
One of the most notable advantages of sliding doors is their space-saving capabilities. They don’t get in the way when you open them, which means there’s nothing to worry about the doors’ orientation and placement of your interior fixtures. Like French doors, they have a large, undivided glass area to provide you with panoramic outdoor views.
So which replacement patio door is the best for your home? It depends on several factors, including your home’s architectural style, available indoor space, and budget. To help you make the decision, turn to the experts at Brewster Roofing LLC.
