Is it time to replace your current patio door? Is it dated, foggy, or failing to open and close properly? Perhaps you are in the process of purchasing a new home here in Brampton, ON, and you need to select the right patio door for your design? Whatever your reason for a patio door search, our team has you covered! Here at Brock Doors and Windows, we know that choosing your patio door is just as important as choosing the right entry door. They both have significant impact on the interior and exterior appearance of your home!
So, how will you decide? Take it from us here at Brock and check out these three considerations before you choose your Brampton, ON patio door!
- Think about design
This is a natural starting point. Your patio door is going to be a focal point; it will assuredly catch the eye every guest who passes by or enters the space for years to come. It’s important to consider the door’s functions and restrictions (if there are any). Think about things like:
- How does it or how should it open (swing-open or slide)?
- How much space does the door need to make sense in the room you want it included?
Beyond type, think about the details: colours, grille patterns, material that best matches your home design aesthetic, etc.
- How will it fit into your outdoor space?
Step outside and take a thorough account of your patio. What does it look like and how large or small is it? For a large patio, you have the room to select a patio door that swings open to the outdoors—you just have to consider the placement of your outdoor furniture. Look inside—is your indoor space tight? If so, this is another reason to consider an outward-swinging patio door. If you have a small outdoor space, a sliding door or inward-swinging door may be the better option.
- How important is energy efficiency to you?
The answer is (hopefully): very! Energy efficiency these days seems to be the top priority for many homeowners—and that’s an exciting direction to see people move in! Thermal protection is not the sole job of your windows and HVAC system; your doors should protect your home from unnecessary heated and chilled air, too. Consider vinyl for your patio door—it requires very little maintenance and provides excellent thermal protection from the fluctuating temperatures outdoor, year round. Note: vinyl patio doors tend to be the most affordable, too!
