The days are starting to get longer, while the nights are starting to get shorter. What does this mean for you as a homeowner? It means you can start dreaming of all you do with your outdoor living spaces once the warmth of spring returns. But all the fun in the sun won’t be as easy to enjoy without new patio doors. Here are some pointers for choosing the right ones.
Choose What Looks Best
You could always choose sliding glass doors for your patio. These doors are one of our specialties here at Capital Remodeling. If you live in a smaller home, sliding glass patio doors make for great space-saving solutions. Also, if you choose to install or upgrade to vinyl sliding patio doors, you won’t have to worry too much about maintenance. Perhaps best of all is that these doors allow plenty of sunshine to pour in, so you can lower your electric bill. Make the room with the door feel brighter and comfier all year long.
Select the Material
Vinyl: As we noted above, vinyl is low-maintenance, which makes it a smart choice for your new sliding glass patio doors. These doors can survive whatever weather comes your way as winter slowly changes into spring. What’s more important is that vinyl is incredibly energy-efficient as well.
Wood: If you want to make an elegant statement with the exteriors of your home, then wood could be the answer you want. Whichever color of wood paint or stain you would like to use works as well, as long as you keep in mind that wood is costlier to install and maintain than the other materials are.
Aluminum: While aluminum is inexpensive, you should know that lower cost has a trade-off. For one, the material can’t hold heat or cold in as well, which isn’t a good sign for those chilly winter nights or humid spring evenings.
Incorporate Some Upgrades
Grids: Grids are an excellent idea for upgrading your windows. But they can also enhance your sliding glass patio doors. Would you like a colonial pattern or diamond? The choice is yours!
Hardware: Opening and closing your sliding glass patio doors doesn’t only need to be accomplished with a dull door handle. Give bronze a chance, or choose eye-catching brass.
Colors: Choosing the right colors is another important consideration to keep in mind. After all, you’ll want to be sure your new doors blend in gracefully with the rest of your home.
Screens: Once spring and summer are back, you’ll also see an upswing in how many insects will invade your home. Keep them out with a screen for your patio doors.
