Hinged vs. Sliding Patio Doors: What Should You Pick?

Patio doors can offer so many great things for your home, but you’ll need to consider your choice of door styles carefully. Your available options come down to these two: hinged and sliding. Both offer distinct benefits that make them a worthy investment, and you’ll need to weigh those same advantages against your own specific needs. To help you make an easier decision, Window World of Boston, the premier door and siding replacement company in the area, shares a quick comparison. 

Hinged vs. Sliding Patio Doors: What Should You Pick?

Hinged Patio Doors

If your home style leans toward traditional, then you might want to consider hinged patio doors. Their neat and elegant design adds a timeless look, making these doors an instant focal point in your home. Hinged patio doors create a wide opening that makes the transition between your home interior and outdoor living space easier and more seamless. If you love entertaining, this particular feature should prove especially useful. Did you know that hinged patio doors can also keep your energy costs down? That’s because they create a strong and airtight seal when closed, preventing valuable heating or cooling energy from leaking out while also stopping outdoor temperatures from leaking in. 

Trusted door and roofing service provider, Window World of Boston, offers top-tier hinged patio doors with this innovative feature: vented sidelites. They not only establish a greater connection between your home interior and the outdoors; they also improve your access to natural ventilation. Along with special multi-point lock gears for improved safety, and a screen tab system for secure, tight closure, these vented sidelites make a fine addition to your hinged patio doors. 

Sliding Patio Doors

With their slim frames and expansive glass, sliding patio doors are a staple in modern and contemporary homes. Their sleek design not only maximizes your viewing area but also provides greater access to natural light. This means you won’t have to rely too much on artificial lighting to keep your home illuminated in the daytime, which, in turn, helps reduce your electric bills. The smooth and easy operation of sliding patio doors also improves accessibility in your home. Opening and closing them don’t require much effort, making them incredibly useful to those who have difficulty with fine motor skills.

The sliding doors offered by Window World of Boston are chock full of excellent features that make them a standout. They’re available in a wide selection of customization options including grids, colors, and hardware, allowing for many design possibilities. Thanks to their multi-chambered construction, our sliding patio doors also ensure improved strength and energy efficiency. Have we mentioned that they’re low-maintenance? The premium vinyl components of our sliding patio doors come with a baked-on color, which eliminates the need for painting and staining.
