Exterior Patio Doors

Patio doors can be a great upgrade to your home in any room. There are a few different options to choose from when deciding on which type suits your needs best. We use three different manufacturers for these doors: Pella- if you are looking for a true French door that is aluminum clad (exterior) and wood (interior). Lux-if you are looking for atrium or garden doors with aluminum clad (exterior) wood (interior) and Gentek- for your vinyl needs inside and out.

All of our products are energy star rated and most have Low E (a coating on the glass to block UV rays) and Argon gas (a gas insulator that is between the dual pane glass). In today’s market, depending on the manufacturer of product you select, there are many options to choose from. Mini blinds or shades between the glass are today’s most popular choice, grills between the glass are still available and SDL (simulated divide lites) grills are also very common in today’s market.

The most popular is the sliding patio door. It has a screen on rollers and can be used in situations where a door cannot swing inside or out. This type of door is very efficient and is the most economical. It comes in many different stock sizes but can also be built to accommodate custom sizes. They are dual pane which can be heavy for some people, but in the right location they are a great choice. The sliding patio door allows the greatest amount of light into your home.

The second most popular door in today’s market is the “Garden” or “Atrium” door. This door comes in a few different sizes- 5′, 6′ and 75″ to accommodate existing sizes currently in your home. These doors also have additional features like the sliding patio door. The best attribute for this type of door is the option to have one side constantly open with a screen and the other as a passage door. This combination allows for the greatest efficiency of the three doors by having the optional cam locks for a tighter seal.

The third and final style of patio door is the “French” door. It is the most sought after door after until customers learn more about the product. In a perfect world they are great. They are very open concept, can make moving furniture easy and provide a great entranceway to your home. The downside is that with our climate, freezing and thawing occurs so often it can throw this type of door out of alignment. They are tricky to install 100%, leaving very little room for error. Lastly, there are no screens included with these doors. Customers often have to purchase retractable screens (two) to seal up the opening and keep insects out.
