When it comes to patio doors, there are so many products to choose from in Tucson that it’s hard to know which is right for you and your home. The last thing you want is to feel like you’re playing Wheel of Fortune…where you roll the dice and hope you come up with a winning patio door. If that is the criteria for your patio door selection, you’ll never have a winning hand.
Back in the day, mention the words “patio door” and you got a door that was synonymous with heat loss, leakage and poor security. You’ll be pleased to know that these days, modern patio doors offer significant improvements. Frames and glass are more energy efficient, multi-point locks are often the norm and sophisticated flashing packages prevent leakage.
All you need to be is INFORMED.
The Right Choice
Choosing a patio door that enhances your room’s spatial style often comes down to a matter of aesthetics and functionality. Consider the three basic patio door styles and imagine what each may or may not do for your home.
Hinged or swinging patio doors operate in much the same fashion as standard exterior doors. They are full view glass panels and often hang in pairs. The doors are center hung, hinged on either side of a central mullion and open much as butterfly wings. A second type of hinged patio door is the French door. French doors are hinged at the side jambs so the door panels meet when closed. The latching mechanism is contained and mounted to one of the doors. When French doors open, the entire area between the hinges is clear.
Gliding or sliding patio doors on the other hand allow for a lot of natural light and are easy to maintain. Sliding doors consist of two or more individual panels, at least one of which slides back and forth on hidden rollers. The sliding panels can be combined with fixed panels to create dramatically broad expanses of glass. Panels slide parallel to the wall so they don’t interfere with furniture placement or walking areas.
And finally, a folding patio door system can open a wide area to the great outdoors. The system operates accordion-style, which means each section slides on an overhead track and neatly folds away for full access. They are available in several configurations, ranging from two to eight leaves.
