The Entrance to Your Plattsburgh, NY Escape Hinged and Sliding Patio Doors

A patio is an important part of a home and its overall ambiance. Not only does it act as a great spot for entertaining, but a patio can also inspire us to get outdoors a little more and enjoy some fresh air. That’s why it shouldn’t be a big surprise that the entranceway to the patio is just as important. Regardless if it’s a hinged or sliding patio door, it can deliver a lot more than just being one more door in your home.

Whether you’ve just completed construction on a patio for your home and are in the market for a new sliding patio door or you are simply replacing an old one, there are a host of possibilities to select from when you start your research. We thought it would be helpful to make the process a little easier by touching on a few of the basics of the most common patio doors you will find out there.

Sliding Patio Doors

One of the bonuses of sliding patio doors is that they don’t swing open, meaning you have additional space to work with when you decorate and arrange the furniture. Sliding patio doors also allow for a great deal of natural light, adding a warm glow to your home.

So what do you need to know about sliding patio doors to help you conclude if they are right for your home? Here are a couple helpful tips to help you in your search:

  • Available in naturally beautiful wood, durable fiberglass and low-maintenance vinyl.
  • Doors are made with one panel so that they easily slide to one side.
  • Two, three or four panel models are available.
  • Come with a number of grille styles to choose from.
  • Add on a traditional insect screen or Pella’s Rolscreen® retractable insect screen.
  • A number of hardware finishes are available.

With the choice between two doors that swing open from the middle or two doors, one movable and one fixed, you can meet the needs of your home to help provide superior functionality and practicality.
