4 Tips on How to Choose a Patio Door for Your Home
Now that the weather’s warming up, it’s officially patio season! And you know what that means: Lazy afternoons lounging in the sun, playing with your kids in the backyard on the weekends and warm, night-time BBQ’s— what more could you ask for?
If you’re looking to upgrade or install a patio door to help you enjoy the warmer months in Ottawa, but don’t know where to start, here are 4 things to consider:
When choosing your patio doors, think about things like furniture near the place you would like to put your doors, as well as the wall placement before deciding which opening method or style of doors you would like.
If you’re choosing swinging or French doors, make sure they have room to open, or go with a sliding door for convenience and to save on space.

2. Type of Glass
Since glass is usually the main component of patio doors, you’ll want to choose a type of glass that suits your needs.
Marlboro offers a wide variety of glass to choose from, including ENERGY STAR® approved low energy glass. ENERGY STAR®- approved products reduce energy costs, keep your home comfortable, and can also reduce condensation in cold weather.
You’ll be loving your patio door during the warmer months, and all winter long.
Choose a material that’s durable and easy to maintain. Once summer rolls around it’s easy to forget about those Canadian winters, but let’s be honest Ottawa, your patio door has to last through the cold months too.
Available in vinyl, aluminum or hybrid, Marlboro’s garden and patio doors not only feature outstanding design, but are affordable and energy efficient as well.
Just like your windows a patio door adds to your home’s overall look. Find a style that complements the existing aesthetic of your home. There are many options that can be combined to give your home a custom feel.
