What You Need To Know About Patio Doors: Hinged vs. Sliding for your Birmingham, AL home
Adding or replacing patio doors in your home can come with a lot of choices. From color to material type or product line, there are a lot of choices to ponder. Among these considerations is the crucial decision of whether you go with a hinged or sliding patio door. Both are great selections and give you their own unique benefits, but when you boil it down there is one that will work best with your home and style.
Not sure which option is right for your home? Here’s some more information to help you come to a decision on whether you should go with a hinged or sliding patio door.
Sliding Patio Doors:
- If an area is tight, a sliding patio door is most likely the best choice given that they don’t require room to swing open
- Due to their construction they are easy to care for
- Their large glass panels allow for the most natural light
- Offer a contemporary look for modern homes
- Pella Sliding Doors are equipped with a foot bolt lock to open the door about three inches to allow for ventilation.
Hinged Patio Doors:
- Give you a wider opening for more foot traffic and allow for furniture to pass through easily
- Draw the eyes outdoors with their detailed accents
- Have a low threshold to make coming and going easier
- Give you a more classic look
- Pella Hinged Doors offer a multi-point locking system for added security
