Patio doors play a crucial role in making sure that the connection between your patio and the rest of your home is seamless. Getting the first door you find isn’t always the best option. Renewal by Andersen® of Nashville shares a basic guide to the two most popular patio door options from which you can choose.
French Patio Doors
Our French patio doors combine the look of traditional craftsmanship with the latest energy-efficient features to create a timeless masterpiece. This type of replacement door operates by having the panels swing outward, creating an opening as big as the door frame and giving you unhindered access to and from your patio as well as boasting excellent ventilation and natural lighting.
Depending on your preferences, you may want to choose French Patio doors that swing inwards, outwards or both ways. Replacement doors that swing one way are great if one side of your home doesn’t have enough space to make way for the panels while those that swing both ways provide better foot traffic flow from both sides of your home.
Sliding Patio Doors
Do you feel like there’s not enough floor space for any type of French patio door? If you answered yes, then you’re better off with sliding patio doors. Since our sliding patio doors slide along their frames, you don’t have to worry about accidentally hitting something when opening or closing the door. They’re also a better choice if you’re looking for doors that are easier to secure, especially during windy days where a gust of wind can blow a partially opened French patio door open.
Sliding doors can also be designed to have a more contemporary look and feel, making them perfect for modern-themed homes. However, we also offer options that are designed to have a classic finish. Whether you want to keep your home updated or you prefer something that sticks to traditional design, we have a door that will suit your specific needs.
