Types of Patio Doors for Easy Indoor-Outdoor Transition

Types of Patio Doors for Easy Indoor-Outdoor Transition

March 25, 2019

It has been a growing trend to blend together indoor and outdoor living spaces. A well designed patio can serve as an extended living room.

To complement your patio, here are some entry doors to consider for your next renovation:

Glass Walls

Most people would really prefer a bigger space. By installing glass walls, your home will be given a light, airy vibe as it gives you an unobstructed view of the outside.

There are three types of glass walls: one is a pocket glass wall, wherein the glass panels that serve as the doors will slide into a pocket in the wall so that it will disappear from a person’s view.

Next are stacking glass walls. Like the pocket glass walls, this also slides to give way into the house. However, the only difference is that it goes on top of the other glass wall and doesn’t have a slot to store the door, hence why it is called a “stacking” glass wall.

Last is the bi-fold glass wall, which features a panel folding on top of another panel to allow entrance. These entry doors smoothly stack and fold against side walls for easy access.

Sliding Doors

Sliding doors leading to the patio are the perfect option for rooms that have pre-existing tight-fitting door openings with a limited floor plan space. This is mostly where balconies and sunrooms are categorized. Sliding French doors also have an aesthetic appeal, giving your home a classic look.

Another type of patio doors are the in-swing/out-swing. These are fitting for those who have enough space for their doors to open wide to allow entrance and also serves the purpose of letting a significant amount of light in.

Hear From Our Customers

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!
