Creating a Feature With Patio Doors – Stegbar
Patio doors are one of the most popular features of any home. They increase the amount of living and entertaining space, combining indoor and outdoor living and adding value to your home. You also get unimpeded views and lots of natural ventilation and natural light. Choosing a patio door style often comes down to aesthetics and functionality.
Sliding Doors (0:28)
Sliding doors are extremely popular as they let in a lot of natural light and are easy to maintain. The individual panels slide back and forth on hidden rollers and are parallel to the wall, so they don’t interfere with furniture placement or walking areas.
Hinged Doors (0:43)
Hinged patio doors are like a standard exterior door. They are full-view glass panels and often hung in pairs. There’s also the French door, which, when opened clear the entire area between the door hinges
Bi-fold Doors (0:50)
A bi-fold patio door system can open a wide area to the great outdoors. Each section slide on an overhead track and neatly folds away for full access.
Stacking Doors (1:00)
The stacking door system offers space saving versatility while enjoying unobstructed views. It allows two doors to slide across to stack on a third fixed door. You have a choice or two, three, four or six door combinations making it suitable for a variety of design applications.
The material you choose for your patio door depends on what factors are most important to you.
Aluminium is lightweight, strong and cost-effective. It’s corrosion-resistant and performs well in most climates. You’ll never need to repaint if you choose aluminium but you also can’t change the colour as it can’t be painted.
Cedar is a sustainably grown timber from North America. It’s a great insulator, and it’s rich warm tones are a stunning addition to any home. Cedar can be painted or stained, meaning you can change the colour palette of your home very easily
Siteline composite is like a suit of armour, with aluminium on the outer and timber the inside, providing exceptional energy and noise performance with no exterior painting required. You get the best of both aluminium and timber with Siteline composite patio doors.
Insect Screen Options (1:10)
If insects bug you, then standard sliding insect and retractable insect screens are a great way of keeping unwanted insects guests out. The retractable screens have the added advantage of sliding out of sight when not in use. This is especially great for bi-fold doors.
When choosing your new patio doors, energy efficiency should be a priority. The right patio doors and glass could actually pay for themselves in reduced energy costs.
