Your patio doors can enhance the look and feel of your home. They will add both beauty and value without sacrificing energy efficiency. Renewal by Andersen® of Atlanta installs only the best replacement windows and doors, and as such, we offer clients both French and sliding patio doors.
Here is a brief comparison of the features of both types of patio doors.
Ideal for Saving Space
One of the primary benefits of sliding patio doors is their space-saving features. While hinged French doors are the ideal patio door style, they need ample space to swing open. If you don’t have space to spare, sliding patio doors would be the more appropriate choice. They let you maximize the use of both indoor and patio spaces.
Large Glass Areas
Sliding patio doors make rooms look larger. The weight of the door sashes rests on the tracks. This lets you choose bigger sashes, which would be impractical on French doors. This means you get larger glass areas, and so create the illusion that the room and the patio are one large space separated by glass doors.
Both patio doors boast exceptional energy efficiency. This is due to the High-Performance™ Low-E glass system of Renewal by Andersen. It provides amazing benefits for cooling, heating, fade resistance and daylighting.
A Good View or an Architectural Centerpiece
Many homeowners enjoy the sleek movement and modern look of sliding patio doors. Their large glass area makes them ideal for viewing the outdoors. You can sit back and admire the outdoors—rain or shine. As a bonus, you can move from the house to the patio and back with very little effort.
Many people look to French doors for their architectural appeal. If your backyard isn’t that appealing, you can even make your French door your architectural centerpiece.
