  • Answers to Frequently Asked Questions About Patio Doors

Installing a patio door is one of the best home improvement projects out there. When tackling this investment, however, it pays to have all bases covered.

Q: What Are the Advantages of a Hinged Patio Door?

Hinged French patio doors usually consist of either a solid wooden panel or a hollow-core door affixed to a door jamb with two or more hinges. By choosing this option, you can fully open the doors without any limit or restriction of just opening side to side. This creates a wide opening, convenient for moving large furniture or providing entry and exit points for multiple individuals. In terms of aesthetics, hinged patio doors offer a more sophisticated design element that fits right into your traditional home design.

Q: What Are the Advantages of a Sliding Patio Door?

Sliding doors, meanwhile, offer a more contemporary style to your home. Unlike their counterparts, they tend to have additional features like a sleek mirrored finish. Because the doors open and close along a horizontal track, this option is less invasive, making it a great space-saving feature for interior rooms with limited space.

Q: Does Either Option Offer Top-Notch Security?

Yes, as long as you choose high-quality brands in the market. Some patio doors aren’t equipped with modern locking mechanisms and other safety features. Exterior renovation contractors recommend choosing either patio doors with a multipoint locking system to ensure home safety and security.

Q: Does Style Matter When Choosing a Patio Door?

Yes! You’ll want to choose a patio door that fits both your specific needs and your home’s overall appearance. The great thing about both options is that they are extremely versatile. Sliding doors may look modern, but they can stand on their own without being the focal point of the room. Despite their sophisticated appearance, French doors can suit any home architecture.

We were so happy with the roofing, siding and pertego job PJ Sullivan did for us. We couldn’t have asked for a better company to do this for us. Pete was very attentive and visited our home at least 3 times a week and that was important for us.
