Patio sliding doors are available in various types and designs. Traditional favorites have wood frames. However, patio sliding doors with metal frames like aluminum are also getting popular these days because of their reputation as sturdy doors. Another favorite of American homeowners is vinyl sliding patio doors. It is not as tough as aluminum nor can it match the elegance of a sliding door with a wooden frame, yet a sliding patio door with vinyl frame is valued for one important thing: affordability.
Timber, good quality wooden frames look good in traditional homes. Hard woods, such as teak and oak are more expensive than soft woods but are also more resiliant. Timber frames are more prone to weather conditions sun and rain can take their toll swelling, shrinking or warping the frames, making the doors difficult to open or close and facilitating draughts. Stained or painted, wooden frames are high maintenance compared with aluminium or pvc.
