Common Myths about Patio Doors: Debunked

Common Myths about Patio Doors: Debunked

An efficient way of making the most out of limited space is by utilizing the right patio door.

Patio doors are essentially sliding doors which are most commonly used to separate the balcony, courtyard, patio, the deck, or any other room.

Here are some common myths you must have heard regarding patio doors and why you need to put them behind you:

Myth#1: Patio doors are not energy-efficient

To say that all patio doors aren’t energy-inefficient is misinformation at its best. The efficiency of your patio door depends on a number of factors, including the material it’s built from, the number of layers it’s composed of, and the installation quality.

If your glass contractor fits the patio door with great accuracy and precision, there are no chances that heat will escape. This is also why you should choose your contractor wisely.

If you’re looking for high energy-efficiency, you can always opt for a laminated glass patio door. The glass on such doors is sandwiched, with two different panes of glass separated by a sheet of vinyl. Other than that, you can also look for insulated glass options to save on both heating and cooling bills.

Myth #2: Patio doors are not good for privacy

Since patio doors cover the entire wall, most people assume this will cause privacy issues for them. In reality, this is not the case. You can choose from a wide range of patio door options according to the level of privacy you desire.

There’s no need to go for clear glass. You can choose tinted glass to match the shade of the interior of your house. Other than covering up for privacy, tinted patio doors also have aesthetic benefits. As an added bonus, a tinted patio glass will also help keep excess sunlight at bay.

Myth#3: Patio doors are unsafe

Safety is a common concern for both commercial and residential clients. One reason most people avoid getting patio doors is because they’re mistaken that the safety of a patio door can easily be compromised.

However, you can always get three-layered, high-strength patio doors which are not just resistant to pressure, but can also withstand adverse weather conditions such as thunderstorms and hurricanes. Other than that, most patio doors also come with high security locking systems that provide a tight seal.
