Home Depot Patio Doors
While you may have put a lot of thought into your front door and your interior doors, you may have overlooked your patio doors. Because a patio door isn’t used as often as a front door or some interior doors, it may be tough to choose the best one for your home. Before you do, there are a few things to consider.
Sliding vs. Swing
One of the main questions you’ll have to ask yourself is whether you want your patio door to slide open or to swing open. Which you choose depends on space, aesthetics, and personal preference. While some homeowners prefer a sliding door that takes up virtually no space, others prefer the classic look and feel of a swing door.
French Patio Doors
Arguably the most popular type of patio door is the double French door. These doors are placed side-by-side and are hinged so that they open away from each other. This creates a large open doorway that many people seek; it not only allows more natural light into the home, but it also adds more fresh air. These doors can also add a touch of sophistication and can create a more open feel between the outdoors and the indoors.
Both P.J. Fitzpatrick patio doors and Home Depot patio doors can be made from several different materials, including wood, vinyl, or fiberglass, and most incorporate glass panes to give you a window to the outside world. While glass doors used to be unreliable when it came to safety and break-ins, today’s patio door glass is much more durable and strong. Which material you choose may depend on its insulation factor, look, and cost.
