How to Choose a Patio Door

Choosing the right patio door can completely transform your living space, expand your views, and allow you to effortlessly transition from indoor to outdoor living. With the different patio door options available, starting the replacement process can seem like a daunting task. At Infinity from Marvin, we believe this experience should be worry-free. That’s why we’ve created this guide to help you find the right patio door solution for your home.

Sliding, Swinging, and Folding Patio Door Options

Choosing the right material - Ultrex® Fiberglass

When starting the replacement process, choosing the right patio door material has a big impact on your living space. That’s why we created Ultrex, a superior fiberglass material used by Infinity from Marvin. Compared to other materials, Ultrex is the strongest window framing material in the replacement industry and captures the beautiful details and profiles of wood windows, without the maintenance.  While other replacement materials such as Vinyl can warp, shift, and crack under everyday conditions, Ultrex fiberglass is a strong, durable material that resists expanding, contracting, and decay for long-lasting performance.

Patio Door Styles

Along with choosing the right material, deciding the style of patio door for your home is an important decision in the replacement process. At Infinity from Marvin, we offer three patio door options — sliding, swinging, and folding. Before choosing a style, take an accurate measurement of your living space. The size of the room and the space allocated for the door to operate is pertinent when deciding which style suits your home best.

Sliding Patio Door

The space-saving benefits that come with Infinity’s sliding patio door effortlessly connect your living spaces indoors and out. Our sliding patio doors feature narrow profiles and are customizable in 2, 3, or 4-panel configurations up to 16 feet wide for expansive, panoramic views. Easily glide our top-hung screen without getting caught on dirt or debris in the sill. Infinity from Marvin offers two different styles of sliding patio doors, the sliding French door and the sliding patio door.

Left vs Right Inswing French Door

A new patio door can improve the function, safety, and beauty of your home. When replacing a patio door, homeowners are often faced with multiple decisions. From choosing the door material, to the size of the door, to features and options, the decisions you make play an important factor in the outcome of your project. When choosing an Inswing French patio door, one major decision is often overlooked — choosing between a left or right-handed door.

Now, obviously one major factor that goes into the decision between a left or right-handed door is personal preference. In some instances, choosing between the two can be an insignificant detail. However, in many cases, an obstruction on either side of the door can impact the functionality of your door and limit the space in your home.
