Sliding vs. Hinged Patio Doors

Patio or back doors are not only a necessity, but they can also be used to physically enhance homes. What shape is your patio door in? Is it time to replace it?

If you’re in the market for a new patio door, you have a couple different options. If you need door replacement for your home in central Indiana, contact Overhead Door Co. of Indianapolis & Muncie—or keep reading to learn more about your different patio doors options!

Types of Patio Doors

The two main types of patio doors are:

  • Sliding
  • Hinged

What’s the difference between these two styles and which one should you get?

Hinged, or swinging, patio doors—usually in the French door style— take up more space and aren’t ideal for smaller rooms or tighter floor plans. They are similar to traditional exterior doors.

Sliding patio doors—also called gliding or bypass patio doors—slide open and closed along a track. They work well in any sized room since they don’t take up any interior space, tend to be extremely energy-efficient and offer expansive views.
