Considering upgrading your patio doors? Before choosing a door replacement, it’s important that you do your research.
In this post, the roofers and door experts at Brewster Roofing LLC list the things you need to consider before choosing a patio door replacement:
Picking a door style is mostly a matter of preference. You can start by identifying your home’s architectural style and researching which door styles have traditionally been paired with that type of architecture. Door and roofing contractors can help you identify your home’s architectural style and recommend door styles that complement its aesthetic.
You can also consider some of the most popular door styles on the market—there’s a good reason why these doors are so in demand after all. To help you get started, here’s an overview of the most popular door styles:
- Folding patio doors – If you want a bigger view of your backyard, folding patio doors can be tucked away neatly to create a wide opening.
- French patio doors – When in doubt, stick to the classics. Hinged French patio doors can give your exterior a sense of sophisticated elegance.
- Sliding patio doors – Sliding patio doors are ideal for homes with limited floor space. Since sliding patio doors slide along tracks instead of swinging open like a regular door, they take up less floor space. They also have wide glass panes that can provide ample natural lighting, which not only gives the illusion of a larger interior but also brightens the mood inside your home.
Heat from the sun can easily pass through glass and make your home uncomfortably warm. Fortunately, manufacturers offer a wide range of energy-efficient glass and insulative door frame options to prevent this. To learn more about your options, consult an experienced exterior contractor.
