Patio doors and garden doors

A patio door is synonymous with a panoramic view of the outside world. An indispensable link between your home and your back yard, a patio door is a way of welcoming nature inside. Portes et Fenêtres Verdun can design your patio door to suit your needs, whether you want a door that’s country style or modern, small or oversized.

Choosing the right patio door

Before you can make an informed decision regarding the future door to your back yard, you need to distinguish between a patio door and a garden door. A patio door generally slides and is made almost entirely of glass in order to let in as much natural light as possible. Well-insulated and durable, it can be adapted to any environment and is available in a wide range of sizes. Current trends favor large patio doors, especially of the lift-and-slide variety, as these greatly increase the amount of light that enters the room. A garden door, on the other hand, swings open, thus providing maximum ventilation. You can even choose the very practical option of having both doors open all the way. These doors are valued for their esthetic aspect—a perfect marriage of wood and glass. Another valuable asset is their security, which is ensured through numerous anchor points.

The glass used in patio doors is tempered, so it’s resistant to impacts. In general, patio doors consist of single thermopane glass doors. They’re available with two, three or even four panels. The frame material ranges from PVC and aluminum to PVC-aluminum hybrids and wood-aluminum hybrids, depending on the homeowner’s budget and needs. The hardware, which can feature a modern or rustic style, not only ensures that the door opens and closes easily but also provides maximum security when the door is locked.
