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.

2) Black Framed Patio Doors

Black framed patio doors are a hot trend right now, especially when you match both the exterior and the interior. This look is perfect for Farmstyle and contemporary homes and can really make a stunning impact.

If you are looking to make a statement in your home and want to embrace indoor outdoor living, AX550 Moving Glass Walls could be just what you are looking for. When it’s closed, enjoy your sweeping outdoor view and flood your home with natural daylight. When it’s open, get ready to entertain as this door invites people to linger outside. A truly stunning choice.

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.

I like the sound of aluminum

I like the sound of aluminum patio doors like you talked about. They would be very durable, I'm sure! We are looking to replace our old patio door with a new one, so I'll think about getting an aluminum one.

Sliding glass door

I really love to have a sliding glass door since I have my pets I want them to see the outside of the house since I cannot always let them out especially when I'm at work. I really love those moving glass walls, I believe it has more of an exceptional style than the others.

Great selection of patio doors

Patio door trends

Patio door trends are interesting. When it comes to decoration, there can be many new trends and techniques that can be work together: Patio doors, walks, wall treatments. I like these photos for inspiration.

Vinyl or fiberglass patio doors

It's good to know fiberglass patio doors can be very energy-efficient. I was initially torn between vinyl and fiberglass, but I guess this is the better choice.

Bi-fold patio door

I have been considering getting a new patio door for my house. I like seeing all of the different options and really like the bi-fold door. That would be a great addition.

Aluminum patio doors

Aluminum frames are cheaper and ease to maintain, aluminum is alternate to wood. Bronze anodized looking good in interior design of homes.
