No matter which type of exterior patio doors you are looking to install, the question of frame material will need to be addressed. The three most popular choices are aluminum, vinyl, and wood folding doors. Below are some of the pros and cons of each material for exterior patio doors to help you make your decision:

Exterior aluminum doors: Aluminum frame doors are hard to beat in versatility, durability, and energy efficiency. They are known to withstand the harshest of climates, even with extreme weather and temperature fluctuations, and can keep your home or business warm in the winter and cool in the summer. They are also extremely low-maintenance and can come in a large variety of colors and finishes to match the look you want at reasonable price points.

Vinyl patio doors: The most affordable of the three main materials for door frames, vinyl doors come with the same extensive range of colors and finishes as the aluminum, and also offer excellent thermal performance. Having come a long way in technological advancements, our vinyl frames are just as stylish as most aluminum frames, and also resistant to peeling, flaking, rotting and corroding. The only down-side is potential for cracks in the vinyl when exposed to severe temperature fluctuations.

Wood folding doors: Though not quite as versatile as the other two door materials, wooden frames make up for this in natural beauty. Available in a multitude of tree species with a variety of finishing options, wooden doors can provide a gorgeous rustic flare to your interior. Since the material is 100% natural, there is some regular maintenance work that is required, but they do have the advantage of easy repairs for any small scratches and nicks.
