1) Vinyl Patio Doors

Vinyl patio doors are one of the most common options to consider. They are cost effective, durable and won’t corrode. Sliding doors are used often when space is limited because swinging doors need room to swing inward or outward when opened. Colorful exterior frames can match the design and style of your home and tinted glass can also be considered. Customize even more with metallic interior handles.

4) Fiberglass Patio Doors

Fiberglass patio doors are not only beautiful but built to last. They expand and contract very little with temperature changes in the weather which also makes them energy efficient. They are extremely strong and resist rotting so they are a dream for homeowners who appreciate low maintenance. Enjoy them in swing or sliding door styles.

5) Aluminum Patio Doors

Aluminum patio doors create a sleek and modern feeling. They have very narrow frames to really maximize the amount of glass you can have. Thin profiles create a timeless look that is available in 3 colors: White, Clear anodized and Bronze anodized. Aluminum frames are easy to maintain and can be less expensive than other window frame materials. Plus, if energy efficiency is important, you’ll want to consider the Thermally Improved option.
