Patio doors help create an indoor-outdoor connection, which can relieve stress and tension right from the comfort of home! Selecting the right material is important, as it will help bring character to your home while also enhancing its natural architecture.
The three main types of materials you have to choose from are fiberglass, vinyl and wood. Each material has its benefits, so the final decision comes down to your personal tastes and preferences. Let’s explore these three materials in more detail so that you can make an optimal choice for your Phoenix home!
Wood Patio Doors
Wood is a classic and versatile option that offers a traditional look. Wood is also energy efficient and sound-resistant, but it does require more maintenance than other options. For instance, you’ll need to refinish your wood patio doors every few years to keep them in good condition.
It’s good to know that there are options that will give you the look of wood while offering more protection, so be sure to ask us about them! As an example, Pella offers aluminum-clad wood that will protect the exterior of your door. This finish is weather-resistant and low in maintenance, so you can easily keep your patio door looking like new – even in the Arizona heat!
Fiberglass Patio Doors
Fiberglass is an excellent material that we highly recommend to our customers, as it holds up well to extreme changes in weather. This is important, as the hot Arizona sun beats down on your patio doors daily. Thankfully, fiberglass is impervious to rot, mold and termites.
Fiberglass is also easier to maintain than wood, and it’s durable, attractive and energy efficient. But if you’re still sold on the look of wood, you can choose fiberglass in a wood grain pattern – no one has to know! Fiberglass patio doors are also available in dozens of colors and finishes to complement your home.
Vinyl Patio Doors
One last option to consider for your patio doors is vinyl. Vinyl is a popular, low maintenance and affordable option that will keep you comfortable year-round. And when you shop with a high quality manufacturer, you can upgrade the style and functionality of your vinyl patio door.
Perhaps the biggest perk about vinyl patio doors is that they require virtually no maintenance. They’re sturdy and can handle shifts in temperature rather well without peeling, flaking or rotting. Quality manufacturers like Pella make vinyl patio doors that require no painting, staining or refinishing!
