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.

This the second time I used Northshield. They replaced five windows and two doors. Work was done efficiently and accurately. Would recommend it to all my friends and family.

Northshield replaced 9 windows in our house. Our only complaint would be that the colour doesn't really match the sample we were shown. The woman we first encountered in the showroom was pleasant and helpful. There are only so many things she could tell us in the showroom but it was enough to convince us to book an appointment with a salesman. Walter, the fellow who came to our house, wasn't really a salesman at all and yet he knew exactly what he was doing. Answered all of our questions, clearly knew his business inside and out, was patient with us, made some really helpful suggestions, and just generally made us feel confident and comfortable. Next came Vladimir. He came to do the final measurements and to verify the details of each window. Another very very knowledgeable guy. Clearly an expert in his field and yet friendly and patient with us. The team of men who came to do the install were all very much polite and professional. Their workmanship is first rate. In the end, what I know is this, the new windows are in, the drafts and rattles from the old ones are gone, the price was fine, the quality is A1, and every single individual along our journey was a genuine pleasure to work with.
