Our Guide to the Features and Benefits of Patio Doors

Choosing patio doors for your home sounds simple enough. You either choose between hinged or sliding doors. But when you factor in the style options, benefits and how they fit into your home as a whole, it becomes just a little more complicated.

Our Guide to the Features and Benefits of Patio Doors

This guide to today’s patio door styles can help uncomplicate things for homeowners.

Traditional French Patio Doors

Traditional architecture calls for traditional styling, which makes our Frenchwood® hinged patio doors the perfect choice. French doors add a sophisticated look that allows full use of the doorway space. The fully-opened doors create a visual perspective that evokes a continuity between your indoor and outdoor spaces. In keeping with traditional looks, Frenchwood hinged patio doors are available in stainable pine, oak, maple or a prefinished white interior. If you have limited interior space, Frenchwood patio doors are also available in an out-swing option.

Contemporary Sliding Patio Doors

Our contemporary sliding patio doors are engineered to allow the biggest glass areas as possible, making them the perfect patio door replacement for modern architectural styles. Sliding doors are favored by homeowners who need to conserve space or need to have patio doors in areas where hinged doors won’t fit. Our Narroline® and Perma-Shield® gliding patio doors use Andersen®-designed tracks that feature two adjustable, self-lubricating tandem rollers that use steel wheels with ball bearings, resulting in patio doors that truly glide. The tracks also carry the door’s weight evenly, which lets you choose doors that are wider than usual. If you want a stainable natural pine interior, complete with mortise-and-tenon joints, choose our Narroline option.

Sliding French Patio Doors

For homeowners who want the traditional styling of French doors and the space-saving features of sliding patio doors, we offer a third choice: Frenchwood sliding French patio doors. This is the perfect option for traditional architectural designs that require more natural light or have areas that simply can’t fit hinged doors. All patio door options come with our energy efficient High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass and are covered by our Transferable Limited Warranties.
