Early Spring in you open Patio Door
And picture early spring, with a patio door. You will be able to enjoy the first rays of sun after those long grey or cold months. Open the door just a little smell and feel that it is true. Spring has arrived.

Sliding Doors often have one door that is fixed and one that slides. Usually they have aluminum frames, but you will also find vinyl, steel or even wood. Aluminum is the least expensive option.
The sliding doors themselves usually come in:
- Wood Clad Doors
Vinyl Low Maintenance, Energy Friendly
Vinyl Sliding Patio doors are energy friendly and the material doesn't need a lot of maintenance. Their energy friendliness improves even further when you install double glass and weather stripping.

Wooden Doors Warn and Cozy looking
Wood doors are in my opinion the most beautiful but they also are the most expensive option.
Wood Clad Sliding Patio doors are wooden doors and frames with a vinyl, fiberglass or aluminum coating on the outside The coating is in fact an armor that protects the wood from the elements. This means less maintenance while you can still enjoy the natural look of wood from the inside.
