Title: Garden Doors versus Sliding Patio Doors: Which Is Better for Your Ottawa Home?


1
Garden Doors versus Sliding Patio Doors Which
Is Better for Your Ottawa Home?
2
When it comes to updating the look and appearance
of your home, one door homeowners consider
upgrading and replacing is the door used to
access their garden, patio, or deck.
3
Two of the most popular choices of doors used in
this area of the home are garden (French-style)
doors and sliding patio doors.
4
Deciding which Ottawa door installation option is
best for your home depends on several different
factors.
5
Among the most important is your own personal
tastes and preferences. Even still, you can find
door solutions in both garden and sliding styles,
so it can still be confusing to make a decision.
6
To help you out, we offer the following details
that highlights the pros and cons of both door
styles.
7
Garden (French-style) Doors This style of door
typically has two sections one on the left and
one on the right which look like traditional
doors used on your home.
8
You can lock on side of the door in place, while
the other side is the main one you use to enter
and exit, with the option to unlock the other
side and fully open both doors.
9
Provide a classic, refined appearance to
your home.
Pros
  • Offer multi-locking system for improved security.

10
No sliding tracks to install or maintain.
Easier to move large furniture in and out of the
home by opening both doors.
11
Require space to swing inward or
outward which you may not have.
Cons
On newly built homes, can be slightly more
difficult to adjust as the home settles.
Requires a separate screen door to be
installed.
12
Sliding doors consist of two sections, like
garden doors. One part of the door is locked in
place and the other slides back and forth along a
horizontal track system.
Sliding Doors
13
Most styles come standard with a sliding screen
door that fits into the exiting track system, so
you can leave the door open and get fresh air in
the home.
Pros
14
Ideal for smaller homes and or in locations where
you lack space for doors to fully swing inwards
or outwards, since the door slides horizontally
along a track.
  • Easier to adjust on newly built homes as the home
    settles.
  • Provides a modern-contemporary look to your home.

15
Cannot always open both sides of the door,
depending on the design, which means you can only
have one side of the door open, or if both sides
do slide open, you will have a much smaller space
on each end with the doors overlapped in the
middle.
Cons
16
The sliding track system needs to be cleaned and
lubricated on a regular basis to keep the door
operating correctly.
17
If you are still not sure which door would be
best for your home, we recommend scheduling a
free, in-home consultation with one of our
replacement door experts to discuss your needs
and explore your options.
