Metal frames usually aluminium provide strength in compact form. As notoriously good conductors (which is a bad attribute for insulation) frames made from aluminium are thermally-broken which is a good attribute. It means that the metals on the inside and outside of the door frames are not joined preventing the temperatures from being transferred between them. A bare metal frame would look completely unattractive so it is powder-coated in a choice of over 100 standard colours including a white that resembles pvc.
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.
Once the measurements have been taken care of it is time to explore the market for the right kind of door to fit the patio area. The most effective way to decide over the different types of patio doors is by looking at layout and design of the patio itself. If the patio windows are made up of glass walls a glass patio door will fit best. If a home features a screened in patio a screen door will look most appropriate. After the type of door is chosen different costs will be incurred for the different types of doors. Glass patio doors are going to cost a little bit more but can serve as storm doors that insulate the home much better. These doors tend to cost in the $200 or more range but are effective and elegant pieces to add to the patio setting.
Some manufactures offer optional extras such as tinted glass anti-sun laminated obscured glass and Argon-filled double-glazing. It is also possible to match existing period features by specifying Georgian bar or leaded-light in rectangular or diamond style. An innovative option is switchable privacy glass which enables molecules inside the double-glazing to become transparent or opaque at the press of a button; this is expensive though typically doubling the original price of good quality patio doors.
