A patio door replacement project may not be as exciting as a kitchen makeover, but this exterior project requires some forethought since it may change the way your home looks, feels and works.
The frame-and-panel style is one of the most popular door configurations. This design involves vertical and horizontal frame membranes, called stiles and rails respectively, that hold floating panels within them. The panels are called this because their tenons “float” within the mortises of the adjacent frame members.
French doors exude a timeless elegance. These components can make your rooms look brighter and enhance the beauty of your home’s exterior and interior.
Your front entry is major part of your home’s curb appeal. As such, it is important that this area of your home has a great impression on your guests. It is as integral as the other parts of the structure’s exterior like the roof, siding and windows.
Patio doors and sliders are made from a variety of materials. It may come as a surprise, but a wood door isn’t actually made entirely of wood. They have steel interiors while some steel doors have wood exteriors. A fiberglass or steel door may have a wood frame, and almost any door can have an energy-efficient core of foam insulation. Some sliders are also made of aluminum.
