A patio door is an indispensable investment that adds value and style to your home. Choosing the right patio door can seem challenging and stressful, which is why we’ve put together a few tips to help make it an easier process.

Complement Your Home’s Architectural Style: 

The architectural style of your home is a big factor to consider when choosing a patio door. Traditional-style homes will usually have French swing doors, which feature one or more panels that swing outward or inward and from left or right. More contemporary homes will have patio sliding doors, which offer more copious natural light with smooth operation and modern design.  Considering your home’s architecture and the aesthetic you want to achieve will help you narrow down the type of patio door that best suits your environment. 

Choosing the Right Material:

Vinyl and aluminum patio doors are the most efficient type of doors you can buy. These two materials are virtually maintenance-free, making them easy to clean and durable. Vinyl is a strong plastic material that doesn’t peel, flake, or rot. Aluminum is a lighter, sleeker material that has a very narrow frame and helps maximize the amount of glass in the door. Both materials are great options that withstand changing seasons and keep your home comfortable and safe. When looking for a patio door, make sure to consider the material that best suits your home and saves you money in the long run.

Seamlessly Connect Your Home with the Outdoors:

Depending on the type of patio door you choose to install, a patio door can enhance your views and allow a generous amount of sunlight into your home. Patio doors that fold in or slide open can make it feel like the outdoors is brought inside. Patio doors are a convenient way to add visual appeal to your home. 

Energy-Efficient Options:
