On the surface, patio doors might just seem like a frill—something you buy if you’ve got extra cash on hand or want to pretty up your property a bit. While patio doors can certainly add some pizzazz to a home, they’re not only there for their looks.
In fact, high quality patio doors actually come with some pretty serious benefits for homeowners—benefits like:
- Increased safety and security – Patio doors add yet another barrier for potential threats, and with the right locks, materials and designs in place, they can increase security significantly. Doors with frosted glass and other smart styling options can help add privacy as well, making residents feel safer and more at ease.
- Energy usage – In a state that averages nearly 100 degrees in the summertime, patio doors can make a huge difference in both comfort and energy usage. Not only can they keep homes cooler in the heat of summer, but they can ensure that cool air doesn’t escape, thus keeping summer month A/C bills at a minimum.
- Resale value – The right patio door—or any aesthetic element, for that matter—can add to a home’s curb appeal and, subsequently, its overall value. That means when it comes time to sell, you may be able to ask for more than you originally put in—and then some.
