There are a wide range of designs, styles and options of patio doors to select from for your home. It is important to keep in mind the amount of space you are working with when choosing the right patio doors for your home. If you have a small space, you may want to go for sliding doors for your doors. On the other hand, a large patio would be best served by a pair of expansive French-style doors. The doors you select should also be weather tight against the elements such as wind, rain and snow.
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.
Metal frames, usually aluminium, provide strength in compact form. As notoriously good conductors (which is a bad attribute for insulation), frames made from aluminium are thermally-broken, which is a good attribute. It means that the metals on the inside and outside of the door frames are not joined, preventing the temperatures from being transferred between them. A bare metal frame would look completely unattractive so it is powder-coated in a choice of over 100 standard colours, including a white that resembles pvc.
