Sliding patio doors have gained in popularity over the past several years. And why not?

Having a patio door also works well on those days when you want to enjoy a welcome breeze during the warmer days.

We have many patio door options for you to choose from, including styles, colors, and hardware.

Here are a couple of advantages of having a patio door:
Natural Light & Space Efficiency
Installing a patio door can take the place of old windows, or even a solid wall, allowing natural light to flood into your home creating an inviting and airy environment. The floor-to-ceiling view brings in the sunlight, views and fresh air are at your disposal 365 days a year! Sliding doors can save space in your home and make it seem larger than it really is. Using a patio door is so easy as it simply slides effortlessly open to access the outdoors without taking up valuable space.
Ventilation & Fresh Air into Your Home
On those warmer days, having the patio door fully open, halfway open, or even slightly open allows for fresh air and circulation. This could be especially beneficial on those warmer Colorado spring days when the fresh breeze can air out your stuffy home. The space of a patio door is big enough to allow for large surges of air to come into the home, cooling the home which could reduce your need for air conditioning on some days. Improving the air quality, smell and feel of fresh air in the house can make a world of difference in your home.
Easy of Access & Traffic Flow
As the sliding doors are easily opened to the side, you can easily access your backyard or patio. Because they don’t swing open, they won’t interfere with furniture or the entryway. This is especially convenient for get-togethers with family and friends, as it allows for greater foot traffic to and from the house.
Patio Doors offer Safety & Security
Most patio doors have optimum security, with some of our patio door options having keyed locksets that offer greater security and peace of mind when away. Dual point stainless steel mortise lock ensures ultimate security by engaging in multiple areas. Some of our patio doors offer a two-position toe lock which permits the door to be locked in an open airflow position or adds extra secure locking.
Patio Doors Easy to Maintain
Patio doors have an effortless operation as they glide on a monorail system for graceful operation making opening the patio door a smooth and quiet process. They are relatively low in maintenance and easy to clean. Sliding doors are a great and affordable way to add functionality to your home.
Sliding Doors offer Increased Energy Efficiency
Many of our patio door options are available in dual or triple-paned configurations with tempered glass for ultimate energy performance while maximizing safety. Some of our patio doors have multiple rows of weatherstripping combined with fully interlocking panels to keep your home secure and free from drafts or leaks. Be sure to ask about our Energy Star-rated Patio Doors!
Blinds Between the Glass
Some patio door options also have blinds between the glass. With this option, you can take control of privacy, security, and daylight. Fingertip adjustment effortlessly operates tilt, raise, and lower operations. Sturdy aluminum blinds are sealed between two panes of Low-E tempered glass. These blinds are covered by a 10-year warranty against material and operational defects.
Increased Home Value
Whether you need replacement windows or a sliding patio door, these upgrades will help add more value to your home, as they can become a primary selling point.
Depending on the style of a patio door, there are other options you can consider such as a patio screen door. Having a patio screen door installed can help make your home safer, as well as protect your home from insects. Another add-on option is installing a pet insert on your patio door. Your pet will absolutely appreciate the easy access, and as a pet owner, you will also appreciate that you don’t have to open and close the door every time your pet needs come and go. The pet inserts come in different sizes, allowing you to find the best option for your pet.
