If you have an old patio door that is inefficient and not performing well, you may be thinking about getting a replacement. Yet with all the different patio door styles available on the market today, deciding which product to choose can be confusing. To make things a little easier, here are some tips that can help you choose the perfect patio door for your home.
Tips for Choosing a Patio Door
In order to choose the perfect patio door for your home, there are a few important things to do:
- Focus on energy efficiency. While every homeowner wants a door that’s as stylish as it is functional, these aren’t the most critical aspects to think about when it comes to choosing a door. Instead, consider an energy-efficient Infinity from Marvin® patio door installed by Callen. Infinity patio doors are engineered to keep outdoor air where it belongs and even exceed residential requirements, performing at light commercial performance grade ratings. An energy-efficient patio door will help you save money year round.
- Make your life easier with low-maintenance features. Most homeowners have busy schedules that don’t allow a lot of time for home maintenance, which is why you want a door that’s durable and easy to clean. After all, a new patio door will be one of the home’s focal points, so you’ll want to keep it well-maintained. In addition, patio doors need to be strong in order to hold up to the increased use they’ll see during the summer months. This is no problem with Infinity from Marvin’s advanced Ultrex® fiberglass frame material, which is eight times stronger than vinyl!
- Take space considerations into account. Swing direction and overall space must be taken into account when determining the right patio door style for your home. If you have the space, a hinged French patio door is an excellent option, as it will give you a wider entryway with easier access to the outdoors, creating a seamless transition between your indoor and outdoor spaces. However, if space-saving features are more of a priority, a sliding patio door could be a better option. This style works particularly well for balconies, small decks and patios, or any space where a door that swings inward would block traffic flow or interfere with furniture placement.
