Finding The Right Patio Door For You

Naperville wood and windows

The patio door can be the gateway to your beautiful backyard. With kids and barbecues, it has the potential of a lot of traffic. It will bring in amazing natural light helping you get the right start to your morning. So let's review some options for doors so that you can find the one that is meant to be in your home.

Swinging vs. Sliding

Swinging (hinged) doors can have the extra open look. They typically come in pairs and you can open them together and add to that openness feeling to your home. Sliding doors can be nice where you don't have to worry about where you put the furniture. In other words, there doesn't need to be a certain distance to keep for the furniture as the door will not be swung open.

Materials

There are many options for the material used as well.

1. Wood.
