Patio Doors

uPVC patio doors are very popular as they allow plenty of light into your property whilst giving you an exit that leads straight out onto the garden.

However, there are a number of styles and types of uPVC patio door that you can get your hands on, so you can find one that suits your home.

Sliding patio doors are literally a large sheet of glass, with a small metal frame around the outside. This means they’re see-through, but will take up more room than a normal door as they’ll come in pairs.

To open the doors, one will slide behind the other but some allow you to open either side. You can also find styles that mimic French doors and even some that open like normal doors – so you really have endless opportunities.

uPVC patio doors require a lot of work to install, as you have to cut a large hole out of the exterior wall so it’s advised to bring in a professional to carry out the work.

But if you’re having replacement patio doors or simply changing the style, you might be able to carry out the task yourself.

On some occasions you may find patio doors that lead onto an enclosed area, like a sun room or conservatory. The doors would previously have led into the garden, but the extension was built at a later date.
