A good place to start would be a home design store that offers patio doors with built in blinds. You will need to know the measurements of your door area in order to get an idea of the sizing needed. The more popular door units will be energy efficient to keep your home insulated from both hot and cold weather temperatures. The actual blinds themselves are usually white in color and have features like tilt and raise operation and maintenance free styling. These doors are also built to be strong and weather resistant, so they should last for years without any problems.
Traditional patio doors are made of wooden frames. Wood is certainly an elegant frame for a door. The main drawback those with wooden frames is cost. Arguably, these doors are a lot cheaper than wooden ones. In terms of durability, aluminum beats wood. With a high tensile strength, aluminum is made to last a lifetime. It does not easily get scratched by cats or dogs like wood does; aluminum is virtually scratch-free if taken cared of properly. Longevity of aluminum cannot be questioned, too. Compared to wood, aluminum does not suffer from rot. Nor would it easily corrode. Pound for pound, aluminum doors to your patio outmatch wooden ones where toughness is concerned.
As with timber, the quality of pvc frames available can vary - and generally, you get what you pay for. The better ones will usually be reinforced with metal, internally, for greater strength but the cheaper options can be a nightmare to live with - sticking, twisting, splitting, discolouring, warping - often within a very short time. Most usually supplied as white, some manufacturers offer limited colour options or wood effect finishes.
