Picking a patio door means choosing how you would transition from your patio into your interior and vice versa. A patio door contributes to the look and feel of your home. And since we’re the leading door replacement company, Stittsville Windows and Doors has a few important tips to help you select the right one.
Consider the Space
First, think about the type of door you want. Most contractors offer two different styles that rely on two mechanisms: sliding and hinged. Sliding doors give the design a contemporary feel. Hinged ones take a bit of space to open, but also have a classic appeal.
Aside from the patio door’s space efficiency, another important factor is the glass of the door itself. Are you happy to show off the interior design of your living room or kitchen? Or, do you want some privacy from outsiders? You can choose a door with a clear window, or you can use reflective or textured glass to make your sliding glass doors act as a secondary curtain.
Another important role glass plays is in the energy efficiency of your doors. As with windows, you can reduce your utility bills with a door that uses proper Low-E glass. For example, we offer glass and frames to help make your home more energy-efficient.
The aesthetic value of your patio doors is also important. Account for the style of your home and how you can use the door to enhance it. Contemporary homes will benefit from sleek, clean sliding doors. Homes with designs leaning to a more classical taste will benefit from French door styles. In either case, they offer their homeowners a consistent and pleasant visual appeal.
