Patios are ideal for soaking in Las Vegas’ year-round sunshine. If you want to have easy access to your outdoor recreational areas, choose the right patio door. Unlike entry doors, this type of door comes with more glass and wider access. Patio doors also come in several designs, colors, materials, and decorative hardware.
Choosing the right patio door is easy if you’re familiar with the product. Renewal by Andersen® of Las Vegas presents the following design guide so you can select the right material, design, and color for your patio doors.
Door Styles and Their Function
Patio doors can be either hinged or sliding. The latter are the most popular because these provide wider access. They are made of large glass panels placed on a track, saving more space. Since sliding doors are opened by gliding left or right, you don’t have to worry about any obstructing indoor or patio furniture.
Hinged patio doors, on the other hand, are more similar to front doors but with larger glass area. Door contractors in Las Vegas, NV typically use French doors for patios. At Renewal by Andersen of Las Vegas, we combine the elegance of French patio doors with durability and energy efficiency. Our sliding doors are also built to last and reduce energy consumption.
When choosing patio doors, it’s important to consider durability and energy efficiency along with beauty. With these features, you can be sure to save money on frequent repairs and high electric bills. These features depend on what the frame is made of and the type of glass used. At Renewal by Andersen, we use the following materials:
• Fibrex® – Our patented composite material never needs painting and is guaranteed not to crack, pit, corrode, or rot. Fibrex is a blend of wood fiber and polymers that combines the strength of wood and low maintenance features of vinyl. Patio doors made of Fibrex are highly customizable, available in various colors and textures.
• High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass – This glass package offers 56% more efficiency during summer compared to ordinary dual-pane glass.
Choosing patio doors doesn’t stop at material and style selection. You can customize your new doors with colors, hardware, locks, and screens. When picking a color, make sure it matches the current theme of your patio and the interior. You can select different exterior and interior finishes for Renewal by Andersen doors to make sure it looks good on both inside and outside.
