If you’re planning on installing a patio door or replacing an old one, one of the basic choices that you would have to make is between a hinged patio door and a sliding patio door. Apart from that, you may also have other burning questions. Make sure to have them answered by a professional so that you can be properly guided in making the right decision.
Why Should I Install a Sliding Patio Door?
Sliding patio doors are widely considered as space-efficient so they’re often the top choice for homes with limited spaces. This type of patio door slides horizontally along a track instead of swinging open. It does not require a lot of space, and it’s often the ideal choice for contemporary architectural styles.
Why Should I Install a Hinged Patio Door?
A hinged French patio door generally works best in more traditional home designs. It can add a very sophisticated appeal, and it offers a wide opening when both panels are fully opened. This is quite convenient for moving large furniture in and out of your home, but obviously it can take up a lot of space.
Is It Possible to Replace an Existing Sliding Patio Door With a Hinged Patio Door?
You can install a different style of patio door if you ever want to switch it up.
Are Patio Doors Secure?
Yes, patio doors can be as secure as other exterior doors since you can add various features and locking mechanisms to them. For Andersen® patio doors, you can find a multipoint locking system built into their design.
