Sliding Patio Doors
Sliding Patio Doors are the most space efficient of all door types. They open and close on a slider and therefore do not require any additional space around the door. You can put up sliding doors in alleyways, balconies, drawing rooms and a lot of other spaces; they are indeed a most versatile door type.
You can also use sliding doors to create a partition between two parts of a large space that you intend to use for different purposes. For example, if you have a big hall in your house, you can easily put up a sliding door to demarcate a formal dining area and the living area. In case you have a party at home, you can open the sliders up to again merge the two spaces. If you like things a little edgy, you can choose a decorative door style here, like stained glass, or a checkered grid; match it with the rest of the décor and you will be good to go.
These are the doors the way doors have always been – two panels moving on hinges. The traditional two panels can as well be replaced by a single panel based on space restrictions and your preference. French doors do need enough space for them to operate smoothly. But the plus side of installing a French door instead of a sliding door is, that French doors open out wider than sliding doors where at least one panel remains fixed.
When it comes to French doors, you can choose from an infinite range of designs. In addition, the choice of materials for French doors is also very large. The decision to choose the right design and right material for all the French doors in your house can be a tough one – at Chatsworth Window Replacement Experts, we make it easier for you by recommending to you the best design and material combinations.
The entry door to your house ought to be the sturdiest one, in addition to being grand and inviting. For most people it is also the most expensive door of the house and should therefore be chosen with great care. You can go for entry doors with arches, beautiful veneers and fancy doorknobs.
For the sake of security, always go for a very tough material. Install modern digital locks to significantly lower the risk of a breakin, and consider reinforcing your entry door if you need the additional safety.
And the last yet very important point is, installing an entry door that insulates well. Ineffective insulation can cause your entire home to get colder, subsequently increasing your power bills.
