Replacement Patio Doors from Superior Products Colorado
It’s no surprise that patio doors are probably one of the most popular features for homes in Colorado – where we enjoy 300+ days of sunshine per year. Replacement patio doors fill your home with natural light and fresh air, while providing a transition to outdoor living areas (custom decks, dining, or lounging areas).
If you’re planning to install or replace existing patio doors, the good news is that they’ve come a long way in beauty, durability, energy efficiency, and security.
Depending on the material you choose for your patio doors, colors & finishes will include white or neutral colors, wood tones, or any color of the rainbow for patio doors that can be custom painted.
Three Styles of Patio Doors Available
Superior Products Colorado can bring the outdoors into your home with a variety of patio doors from multiple manufacturers. What’s more, they come in a variety of finishes. Here’s a quick look at the three main types of patio doors:
- Sliding Patio Doors: Sliding patio doors do not swing in or out and interfere with placement of furniture. Instead, this style of patio doors features big panels of glass that glide on rollers. Sliders are particularly great when you want to showcase gorgeous views.
- Swinging Patio Doors: This style of patio doors comes in two styles: a hinged patio door or a French door. Hinged patio doors fold and extend out (or in) to provide access outside. French doors have hinges on the outer perimeter of the door frame. When closed, two doors come together and meet in the middle with no structural support. The French patio doors connect together to lock.
- Folding Patio Doors: Folding patio doors operate much like an accordion. The sections of this type of patio door system fold neatly away and can have up to 8 accordion panels.
Many Choices: Patio Doors Come In Many Different Materials
Patio doors are available in the following materials:
- Wood Clad
Patio Doors Are More Energy-efficient These Days
In the old days, patio doors provided a fair amount of heat loss in the winter, and cooling loss in the summer. But today’s patio doors are much more energy efficient. Frames are better constructed and insulated. You also can choose from many types of glass, including energy-efficient Low E glass (controls sunlight & heat loss), tinted glass, or plain clear glass when you want to enjoy panoramic views through the patio doors.
