What You Need To Know About Patio Doors: Hinged vs. Sliding for your Scottsdale, AZ home

Adding or replacing patio doors in your home can come with a lot of things to think about. From color to material type or product line, there are a lot of things to think about. Among these options is the important decision of whether you go with a hinged or sliding patio door. Both are great options and offer their own unique benefits, but ultimately there is one that will work best with your home and style.

Not sure which option is right for your home? Here’s some more information to help you decide whether you should buy a hinged or sliding patio door.

Sliding Patio Doors:

  • If room is tight, a sliding patio door is most likely the ideal choice given that they don’t require room to swing open
  • Due to their construction they are easy to care for
  • Their large glass panels allow for maximum natural light
  • Offer a contemporary look for modern homes
  • Pella Sliding Doors are equipped with a foot bolt lock to open the door about three inches to allow for ventilation.

Hinged Patio Doors:

  • Provide a wider opening for more foot traffic and allow for furniture to pass through easily
  • Draw the eyes outdoors because of their detailed accents
  • Have a low threshold to make coming and going easier
  • Provide a more classic look
  • Pella Hinged Doors offer a multi-point locking system for added security
