Sabourin Patio Doors October 10th, 2017 - 01:42:48
Remember when it comes to hardwood patio doors you dont have to settle for the same old look everyone else has. In fact its a good idea to do some online research and look at some photos of wooden doors which can be a big help when youre trying to decide what you like best. To keep maintenance to a minimum you can have the wood treated with a weatherproofing formula that protects the wood finish. This allows you to enjoy your patio and those stylish doors for many years to come.
Going with a wooden door style means that youll probably pay a bit more and youll need to keep up with their maintenance if you wish to keep them from getting that weathered look. However wood is a luxurious material that provides your home with a natural ambience and charm. Patio doors can be found in hardwood types such as oak cherry and mahogany which are strong and blend well with many interiors and exterior areas.
Generally timber frames are considered more traditional and can look beautiful! Hard wood such as oak is as the name suggests far more hard-wearing than a soft wood such as pine. Weather especially strong sun can take its toll on timber frames which could need to be varnished or painted annually. Wooden frames can swell and shrink with humidity therefore opening and closing doors can require force and gaps can allow draughts in colder temperatures.
Bi Folding doors were launched around the turn of the century; they can be installed in place of French doors where both doors are hinged to fold as they open together to one side. Bi folding doors can also span an opening to around 7 metres wide depending on the frame chosen. A master door can be placed amongst the doors at the ends or in the middle wherever the opening is required; this door is a standard (pivot) opening door which enables the other doors to be pushed to the side or sides of the aperture resulting in a sliding-folding action concertina-style to maximise the width of the opening between home and garden or conservatory.
