Sliding Patio Doors
–Sliding patio doors or also known as gliding doors, are very popular due to their easy maintenance and functionality. This style provides ample lighting through broad glass panel options. Sliding doors have two or more individual panels that one or both can be fixed to slide back and forth on hidden rollers. This sliding patio door option allows easy furniture placement and walking areas so as to not interfere with your home’s living space.
Swinging Patio Doors & French Doors
-These types of patio doors operate on hinges and act much like standard exterior doors. For swinging patio doors, full view glass panels hang in pairs and are center hung, hinged on either side of a central mullen and open in the same manner as a butterfly’s wing. French patio doors are hinged at the side, in an opposite fashion of swinging patio doors. French patio doors are hinged at side jambs and open in the middle, creating an open space.
