Vinyl Patio Doors. Vinyl patio doors are built to last for years to come and stand up against severe weather in your area. Vinyl is less expensive than wood and fiberglass, but still has the energy efficiency benefits that wood and fiberglass have. Vinyl patio doors also come in a wide variety of colors to choose from, including a woodgrain laminate that is designed to look like real wood.

Wood Patio Doors. Wood doors boast a stylish look and can be customized to any paint or stain color you choose. However, they are commonly more expensive than the other materials and require more upkeep to make them looking beautiful year after year.

Fiberglass Patio Doors. Fiberglass requires little to no maintenance, can weather outdoor elements and can be customized to blend effortlessly with the design of your residence. However, with its benefits comes a higher price. Fiberglass is the most expensive patio door material.

Aluminum Patio Doors. Aluminum is one of the least expensive materials to choose from, but it also has downsides. Because it is lightweight, aluminum is unable to retain heat or keep cool air inside as efficiently as other materials. So, you can expect your energy costs to increase with aluminum doors. They can also dent or scratch more easily.

Sliding Patio Doors. A great space-saving option, sliding patio doors boast style and extreme functionality. Sliding glass doors create an effortless transition from indoors to out, and if you have a vinyl sliding door, it will require little to no upkeep.
