Top Benefits of Patio Doors for Your Sunroom


A patio is a wonderful extension to any home. A patio with a roof allows the homeowner and their guests to enjoy the feeling of sitting outdoors without being faced with the elements. There's nothing more relaxing than taking a seat, putting your feet up and enjoying the view. While having a roof over your head is great, patio doors can also be highly beneficial and allow you to really enjoy this beautiful part of your home.

 

Aesthetic Appeal and Value

Patio Doors come in many different sizes and designs. No matter the style of your home, you will find various options at NorthShield Windows and Doors. Not only will your new patio doors improve the appearance of your home but it will also add to its value.

 

Energy Efficiency

By installing patio doors, homeowners add an extra barrier that will improve the overall energy efficiency. Your patio will act as a layer of insulation which will reduce heat loss during the cold winter months. Likewise, your home will also maintain a more comfortable temperature during the hot summers. The patio will warm up before any surrounding rooms experience an increase in temperature. If you use an air conditioner in the summer, you will notice that it will no longer need to work quite as hard to keep your home cool.

 

Visibility Outdoors

If you have children or grandchildren, you will know how much they love to run and play outside. Many times, their screaming and shouting can be misinterpreted and have you running outside to evaluate the situation. Installing doors to close off your patio will help keep noise levels down without obscuring visibility. You can still watch over little ones without the nasty side effect of ringing ears!

 

Keep the Elements Out

Throughout the year, we can expect anything from unbearable heat to snowstorms and everything in between. It really is a shame to not make use of your patio just because of unsuitable or unpleasant weather conditions. Many people admit that they love the sound and smell of the rain. Watching the rain pour down while your patio offers shelter can be the perfect way to unwind.

The wind can also be extremely unpleasant. Especially if you are trying to settle down and read a book. It is far more pleasant to listen to the wind howl and enjoy the natural light that enters through your patio doors.

 

Entertain No Matter What!

A fully enclosed patio really does act as an additional room in your home, and it is excellent for entertaining guests regardless of the weather. The patio is the perfect compromise for those who do not want to host a party inside their home but are unable to set up outside due to the weather.  Even if you do set up outdoors and the weather changes in a hurry, you can quite easily move everyone under cover! By using your patio as a venue, you will not need to worry about your entire house being turned upside down. It won't even be the end of the world if somebody spills some food or wine.

 

When selecting doors for your patio, it is important to consider popular options such as sliding doors. Sliding doors tend to take up less space due to the manner in which they open and close. Sliding doors can also be opened partially so that your pets can get in and out without forcing you to leave the door completely open. You can also open up your sliding patio doors completely to make it easier to move furniture in and out of your home. So many times the front door is simply not wide enough, and you are forced to take your new piece of furniture apart just to move it into your home. All of this can be avoided by choosing the right doors for your patio.

We had our windows installed last summer and absolutely love them - especially the large kitchen window. Our sales rep Jim S. was terrific and knowledgeable. The installers did a professional, skilled job of installing our windows. And the windows themselves are high quality, easy to open and easy to clean - as well as reasonably priced. We are very happy with our entire experience with this company and highly recommend them. Thank you!

We had our windows and door installed by NorthShield, we are very satisfied. The sales man Jim was fantastic, he answered all our question and concerns and made sure we understand all what we were inquiring about. We are happy with the product and the price. The installation crew Anton Alex and Russ were amazing, they were polite, professional and very friendly.They explained and showed us how to operate our new windows and door and cleaned up after themselves even after we told them not to worry about the cleaning. We have recommended NorthShield to our friends and neighbours.
