A patio is an important part of a home and its overall environment. Not only does it act as a great spot for entertaining, but a patio can also encourage us to get outside a little more and breathe in some fresh air. That’s why it shouldn’t be a big surprise that the entranceway to the patio is just as important. Regardless if it’s a hinged or sliding patio door, it can provide you a lot more than just being another door in your home.

Whether you’ve just built a patio for your home and are searching for a new sliding patio door or you are simply swapping an old one, there are a number of possibilities to choose from when you kickoff your research. We thought it might be helpful to make the process a little easier by covering a few of the basics of the most common patio doors you will find out there.

Sliding Patio Doors

One of the benefits of sliding patio doors is that they don’t swing open, meaning you have added space to work with when it’s time to decorate and place your furniture. Sliding patio doors also allow for a great deal of natural light, adding a warm glow to your home.

So what do you need to know about sliding patio doors to help you decide if they are right for your home? Here are six helpful tips to help you in your search:
