An often overlooked part of the home, your patio door is almost as important as your entry door. Like your front door, a patio door keeps the weather out, provides extra security, and provides a way for natural light to enter your home. These days, doors are much more complex than they used to be, offering eco-friendly, cost effective options to rival more traditional options that probably came with your home. The modern patio door is all about energy efficiency, designed to keep heat in during the winter, and out during the summer. Here at John’s, we stay on top of the industry, in order to keep our customers up to date with all the current trends and new products, so you don’t have to worry if you’re making the right decision.
At John’s Lumber, we carry a wide selection of patio doors from two of the best brands in the business, Andersen and Jeld-Wen. Between both brands, there are a wide variety of options available, from choosing between sliding, folding, or swinging doors, to selecting the right style for your home. There are plenty of possibilities to choose from, and our experienced window and door staff can help you pick the one that best fits your style, and your home.
When choosing a patio door, it’s good to look at your options. Below are some of the different materials commonly used in building patio doors:
- Fiberglass – Meant to look and feel like wood, without the hassle. Fiberglass doors are the industry standard these days, being affordable, durable, and long lasting.
- Steel – Cost effective, sturdy, and perfect for security, steel doors offer the best protection from the outside for the cost.
- Vinyl – A strong plastic material that is used for its durability, energy efficiency and ability to stand up to the elements. An extremely strong plastic material, vinyl is one of the most common materials used in windows and doors these days. Very cost friendly, while remaining strong and energy efficient, it’s no wonder vinyl is so popular among home owners.
- Wood – While not as long lasting or energy efficient, wood doors offer unmatched beauty that can’t be matched by any artificial material. Available in a wide variety of species, all with different grains and colors, wood doors are a great choice.
