When choosing a patio door for your home, it is important to be aware of the key features and advantages of your available options. But you probably have some questions about your patio door options. 

What Are the Advantages of a Hinged Patio Door?

A hinged patio door gives you the option to open just one or both of the doors. This is very convenient when you need to move large furniture into your home. Also, the door’s threshold is unobtrusive since there is no need for tracks.

What Are the Disadvantages of a Hinged Patio Door?

You will need room to swing open a hinged patio door so this type of door may not be suitable for small patios.

What Are the Advantages of a Sliding Patio Door?

Sliding doors do not take up space inside or outside so they are a suitable option when the space is an issue. Sliding doors also complement modern and contemporary home styles. They are also generally more affordable than hinged French patio doors.
