Doors and windows are the most important aspect going into your new home or remodel; they are responsible for air flow, natural light, and the transition from indoor to outdoor living spaces. Your choice of door can transform and modernize your home and create a life of luxury. Choosing a new door to replace your outdated patio doors can be difficult. With the many styles and options available, we know it can be intimidating and stressful navigating the world of patio doors! Continue reading to learn more about the styles and options available, and to find the right patio door for your home design project.
Bi-Fold Patio Doors
Bi-Fold Patio Doors are glass doors which fold away accordion style and neatly stack together. With Bi-Fold Doors, you can open entire walls to the outdoors and blur the line between where the living space ends and the view begins. Folding door systems are perfect for those who want to maximize their view and don’t have the space for pocketing doors. Bi-Folds have a unique look that will add instant luxury to your home.
Multi-Slide Patio Doors
Multi-Slide Patio Doors are glass doors which slide open smoothly and stack together. If space allows, the doors can pocket into a wall and completely disappear, leaving a wide-open space in their wake. Multi-Slides have a sleek and modern look and will let an abundance of natural light into your home. If simplicity and innovation is what you seek, investing in automation of your sliding door system is a smart option.
Lift and Slide Patio Doors
Lift and Slide Patio Doors are glass doors which require the rotation of a lever, which lifts the doors and allows for effortless sliding and stacking of panels. Lift and Slides can also pocket into the wall and create the perfect transition from indoors to outdoors. The technology of Lift and Slides has been around for a long time and provides a more classic option while maintaining a similar function and look to Multi-Slides.
French Swing Patio Doors
French Swing Patio Doors are simply your classic and timeless French doors that meet at the middle and swing open and closed. These beauties have an in swing and out swing option and are a great choice for a project with narrow wall space. What you lack in width can be compensated for in height—pictured above are 12-foot French doors that exude luxury and class.
AG Millworks offers many customizable options for Bi-Folds, Multi-Slides, Lift and Slides, and French Swing Doors to fulfill everyone’s design needs. Doors are available in all-wood or aluminum clad/wood. Wood can be painted or stained—whether you want a dramatic stained interior, or a crisp white cottage feel, AG Millworks has the interior wood species that’s right for you. We’ll even make your door with different wood species on inside and outside surfaces! Aluminum clad/wood doors are available in 5 standard colors, with optional custom colors.
