Patio / June 30, 2018 /
One of the most popular styles of patio doors are sliding patio doors. Vinyl is one of the most popular materials used to construct patio doors. Vinyl sliding patio doors offer great energy efficiency as they are constructed much like vinyl windows, with insulated glass and frames. Sliding patio doors are also very easy to operate. They glide along a track and can be opened and closed with minimal effort.
Fiberglass French doors have become the go to French door option. Fiberglass has tactile flexibility to fit more obscure openings. Fiberglass doors may be more expensive than aluminum, but offer the additional benefit of reduced wear from warping, scratches and environmental weathering. Fiberglass can also match the finish of wooden doors or other textures for a realistic faux look.
