3. Cost Effective

4. Enhance Natural Light Indoors

There’s nothing like an abundance of natural light teeming through your windows to give your home an uplifting atmosphere. While patio doors are indeed doors that create a fluid entrance to your backyard, they also serve as windows and give your home more natural light.

5. Increase Property Value

Homebuyers love the welcoming look of a patio door. If you have a pool, a great view of the river, a beautiful garden, or an oasis of trees in your backyard, why not give potential homebuyers an early glimpse of your home’s backyard assets by showcasing them through a patio door.

6. Protect Your Home

Today’s patio doors come with strong security locks that are built right into them when they are manufactured. Their three-tier protection gives homeowners peace of mind about their protection. Alarms and security bars can be added to your door’s locking system to boost safekeeping even more.

7. Maximized Space

If your home has limited space, you can avoid typical doors that swing in and take up space inside your dwelling. Clearance for these doors needs to be reserved no matter what season it is, gobbling up your indoor space. A sliding glass patio door offers you more space inside your home.

8. Save on Utilities

When natural light streams into your home, you can save on heating bills, and on the energy needed for ample lighting in your home. A patio door can be opened to allow cool breezes to flow into your home, saving you on air conditioning.

9. Double Paned Glass

Today’s patio doors are available in double paned glass, which helps you keep your air conditioning inside each summer and heat inside each winter.

Patio Door Material Options

Your patio door replacement can be customized to match your desires for great looks along with high performance. Choose from:


This popular material is often used in new construction as well as remodeling. Vinyl is a cost-effective, energy efficient, and low maintenance option.


The beauty of genuine wood brings an authentic feel and warmth to your home. Customize your wood door with the paint or stain that brings out the best in your home. There are high maintenance requirements for wood, but if you love the look, it’s worth it. Stay on top of a wood door’s need for upkeep to avoid wood rot or warping from moisture penetration.


If you love the look of wood, but don’t want to have to deal with its high maintenance needs, opt for fiberglass door frames. Durable fiberglass (think hard hats and canoes) stands up to moisture and gives you long-lasting performance you can rely on. Fiberglass doors are energy efficient and can save you on utilities.


This cost-effective material is not as sturdy as fiberglass or other door materials. Aluminum is lightweight and can be dented or scratched easily. It has a high heat conductivity, making it a less than ideal option.


Enjoy a low maintenance, strong steel patio door that boosts your home security.
