The 411 on Patio Doors
In general, there are two kinds of patio doors: sliding doors and swinging doors. Swinging patio doors are often called “French doors.” They can swing outward or inward, depending on how much room you have on either side.
Sliding patio doors commonly have two frames, but it’s possible to have three or more. You can also have operable and inoperable panels, meaning that some doors slide while others remain fixed in place.
Again, you will find numerous options, so it’s essential to find glass suitable for your home and the climate in the St. Louis area.
Types of glass:
Tempered – Traditional glass that’s heated to an extremely high temperature and then rapidly cooled. This treatment creates glass that is 4x stronger than average. If it breaks, it’s more likely to shatter into small round pieces rather than create jagged shards.
- Pros: More affordable
- Cons: Breaks more easily so intruders can get in. Not as resistant to storm damage.
Impact-resistant – This type of glass is often called “laminated glass.” With this process, two panels are pressed between a layer of vinyl. If broken, glass remains attached to the vinyl.
- Pros: Less resistant to breakage, making them more vulnerable to storms and intruders.
- Cons: More expensive
No matter the type of door, be sure to use double-pane glass as it’s more energy-efficient than single-pane glass. Enhanced weather stripping along the frame will also increase efficiency, keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
