Patio Doors: Common Myths & the Truth Behind Them

Nowadays, a patio door is a common sight to see in many American homes. After all, with a patio door you can better enjoy the outdoors from the comfort of your home, and it provides a smooth transition from the inside to the outside of your house. However, some homeowners are reluctant to have a patio door installed due to various myths that they’ve heard about them. 

Patio Doors

In this article, door installation and roofing contractor Window World of Boston discusses the common myths often associated with patio doors and the truth behind them.

Patio Doors Limit Privacy

Patio doors come with large expanses of transparent glass, and as such, one of the myths that usually surrounds them is that they limit your home’s privacy. While it’s true that patio doors can leave you and your home’s interior exposed, it doesn’t have to be this way, as you’re more than free to install privacy films, blinds, shades or other window treatments that can ensure total privacy for your home.

Patio Doors Aren’t Energy Efficient

According to door and roofing replacement experts, another misconception that surrounds patio doors is that they aren’t very energy efficient. This is due to their large glass panes, which allow in a significant amount of sunlight, therefore bringing heat into your house. However, this isn’t exactly the case, as nowadays most door manufacturers make patio doors as energy efficient as possible to help homeowners reduce their home’s energy consumption.

Patio Doors Aren’t Secure

The final myth that surrounds patio doors is that they aren’t as secure as manufacturers say they are. This actually does have some factual basis to it, because when patio doors first came to be, they had flimsy frames and unreliable locks that were very easy to break. Now, however, you don’t have to worry about this, as most manufacturers make patio doors to include modern locking technology that increases security while remaining as durable and long-lasting as possible.
