It can be difficult to understand the different features and advantages of each patio door, which is why we have created a breakdown of each type of door in a bit more detail.
French doors are fantastic for smaller patio openings and usually, consist of two doors which open up from the centre. There is usually no bar running down the middle which means the view will be unobscured. French doors can be made to measure which will give you a bespoke set of doors which will fit your home perfectly.

Sliding doors can be opened up to the full width of the sliding panel, making them perfect for the summertime when the weather is nice.

Which Patio Door Is For Me?
