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

Published on

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 options to consider. Among these options is the key decision of whether you go with a hinged or sliding patio door. Both are great selections and give you their own unique benefits, but ultimately there is one that will work best with your home and style.

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

Sliding Patio Doors:

  • If an area is tight, a sliding patio door is most likely the better door given that they don’t require room to swing open
  • Due to their construction they are easy to take care of
  • 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:

  • Give you a bigger opening for more foot traffic and allow for furniture to pass through easily
  • Draw the eyes outdoors with their intricate 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
