Remember, when it comes to hardwood patio doors, you dont have to settle for the same old look everyone else has. In fact, its a good idea to do some online research and look at some photos of wooden doors, which can be a big help when youre trying to decide what you like best. To keep maintenance to a minimum, you can have the wood treated with a weatherproofing formula that protects the wood finish. This allows you to enjoy your patio and those stylish doors for many years to come.
In addition to your choice of wood type, you can also find hardwood patio doors in a variety of sizes, styles and colors. While some hardwoods are stained a certain color, others are painted white or left in their natural color. Popular styles of wooden doors for patios are French doors and sliding doors, although, there are several other styles that also work great. French patio doors have that old-style provincial look that is very classy and elegant. These doors can have one big pane of glass or multiple panes of glass. Depending on how large your door area is, you can have two doors installed, or as many as four standing side-by-side to create a stunning scenic view to your backyard.
You may not have notice, but your old fashioned patio door is causing you to spend unnecessary energy. Ordinary glass is a notoriously good thermal conductor. During summer months, it can let heat from the outside to travel inside. And when it is winter, it can easily radiate coldness inside and may cause drafts. More heat or cold inside the home during summer or winter translates into more use of air-conditioning or heating systems. That means more energy use and more carbon emission and more expensive electric bills. But these doors are such an elegant household feature that many home owners before are not worried about spending more money for electricity and more energy that would cause more carbon emissions. Some have advocated the use of tinted patio glass doors. While tinted glass may be a good thermal insulator, it would deprive a home owner the most valued asset of this type of door: visual transparency. A patio door that would not allow a home owner to relax inside his home to get an uninterrupted view of his garden or yard would be just the same as a standard entry door.
