What You Need To Know About Patio Doors: Hinged vs. Sliding for your Southern Pines, NC home

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

Unsure which option is right for your home? Here’s a little more information to help you choose whether you should purchase a hinged or sliding patio door.

Sliding Patio Doors:

  • If room is tight, a sliding patio door is most likely the best door 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:

  • Offer a bigger opening for more foot traffic and allow for furniture to pass through easily
  • Draw the eyes outdoors due to their gorgeous accents
  • Have a low threshold to make coming and going easier
  • Give you a more classic look
  • Pella Hinged Doors offer a multi-point locking system for added security
