Choosing Hinged or French Patio Doors
If you are going for a classic look, French or hinged patio doors are a great option. There are different hinged or French patio door types. You’ll have your choice between two fully operable doors, one operable door alongside a fixed door, or a single door that is operable.
Advantages of Choosing Hinged Patio Doors
You will want to choose French style patio doors if you want to be able to open the doors the entire width of the door opening. They are the best option if you want to be able to control the ventilation. Two door styles allow you to open one or both doors to allow in as much breeze as you’d like. Hinged doors also have a number of styles you can choose from.
Choosing Sliding Patio Doors
Because they are functional, easy to use, and practical, many homeowners opt for sliding patio doors. Since the doors don’t swing out, the area has more usable space. Items can be placed close to the door without inhibiting opening or closing the door. Sliding doors are easy to take care of and provide a good source of natural light.
Advantages of Choosing Sliding Patio Doors
One of the top reasons homeowners choose sliding style patio doors is because they are on a track. They glide open and closed easily without requiring much effort on your part. Another reason homeowners tend to choose sliding doors is that they run along a parallel track. This keeps them from taking up any space other than the doorway, even when they are fully opened. Some choose this style of door because of the security of the design. They are designed so that they cannot be lifted off the tracks to allow access.
