Patio doors extend the living space towards the outdoor area of the home and thus provide a bigger living space. Modern patio doors can be found in a variety of styles, colors and materials but they all share one and the same function – to provide a smooth transition between indoor and outdoor space.


Patio doors – which is the best type

There are several types of patio doors and when you choose them you need to know a few things in advance. It is best to consult with your architect or with a professional so that you do not experience any problems afterwards. The best type of opening for particularly large patio doors would be the lift and slide door system as this will allow easy and convenient opening. Optionally, the lift and slide door system can be fitted with an engine and remote control. “Folding doors” will allow to virtually open the entire area and depending on the design and construction, the wing elements can be folded differently. French doors are classic and with a great visual aesthetic value. In addition they add a touch of a romantic atmosphere.

What is the best material for patio doors?

The main functions of patio doors are the good sound insulation and burglary protection as well as keeping the heat in the house. Of course, it depends a lot on the type of windows you use but also on the material of the door frame. Most popular materials are plastic, wood and aluminum. Plastic is durable and easy to maintain. It has good insulating properties and is cheap to buy. Wood frames offer a good protection against noise and low thermal conductivity but must be protected from frost, UV light and moisture which means they require care and maintenance. Wood and aluminum combination is a good choice as the strengths of both materials is combined.
