There are plenty of patio door options available, and picking the right product depends on a few key factors that you should consider. Read on as our door and roof repair experts review the critical things you should consider when shopping for a new patio door.
Your patio door options will be limited by how much floor space you have. If you have limited space, a sliding patio door will work well. A French patio door requires more floor space to operate.
Existing Home Design
The patio door is a big part of your home’s interior AND exterior aesthetics. That’s why you need to find a door style that will blend with the rest of your home. More traditional options favor wood finish frames with stylized profiles, while more modern options have sleek, smooth designs.
Insulation and Weather Protection
Patio doors need to be able to keep the elements at bay, like strong winds, heat from the sun, rain, snow and hail. Look for doors with energy-efficient features like low-E glass and high-quality weatherstripping. Also, check if the frame, hardware and glass panes are rated to withstand local weather conditions.
Installation by Experts
Most importantly, make sure the contractor you choose to install your patio door is reputable and qualified–just like when looking for a qualified roofer to handle your emergency roof repair. Home exterior and gutter companies recommend looking for a contractor that’s certified by a leading manufacturer.
