Choosing the right patio doors for your needs

When it comes to choosing a bi-fold door or patio doors, there are plenty of options available for customers. The type of patio door you opt for will depend on your home design. To help you make the right choice, here are some of the most important design to help you choose the right patio door for your needs

Make best use of space

Bi-folding doors and French doors need room to open. To make sure you get the best use of the space they take up, you’ll need to consider factors like furniture and wall placement before determining which opening method works best for the space. If space is tight, a stationary panel with a single swinging door or sliding doors might be a better option.

Wider doorways offer more options

If you choose a design that has a wide doorway, it will provide greater access and stronger connection to your outdoor living space. Folding patio door systems or multiple French and swing doors can offer the best results for your design.

Choose the best glass you can afford

Glass is a major component of patio doors. The right type of glass will deliver the greatest benefits and the highest levels of efficiency. The correct type of glass can help to lower energy bills all year round and protect against UV fading. Decorative, tempered glass can offer increased privacy and in some circumstances adds a great deal of style, while still letting in natural light.

Choose a material that is durable and easy to maintain, especially if you plan on using your patio door as a main entrance to your home

Quality and Style of Materials Always Matters

Or one that looks cheap. At SRL we only use the highest quality materials to deliver the best solutions for our clients.
