What type of double glazed patio doors suit your home and what type of style or design information is available online – two good questions that could use a price guide.
There are a few basic easily identified patio door styles:
First of all, let’s assume you want to save money on the cost of the work, so you should start your search with some good phrase – maybe ‘Cheap Patio Doors’, but be careful, there is a big difference between cheap & low cost.
The features you should consider for your property is mainly how the doors will look & operate. If you have loads of room and want a great view, try looking at Bi-fold Patio Doors. On the other hand, if room is a bit restricted maybe you should have doors that open outwards like French Patio doors.
In all cases you should consider having doors with anti-lifting tracks, toughened safety glass, 5 lever & multi-point locks so that they are secure.
For energy efficiency, there are options for low-emissivity glass which reduces bot heat loss & heat gain whilst keeping out the cold weather & maybe even gas filled double or triple glazed glass sections for extra thermal efficiency.
