Sliding Patio Door


I am getting ready to put a new door in at our beach house. The one contract is suggesting a Simonton ProFinish door vinyl. Everything gets ruined at the beach anyway. Any better suggestions for a manufacturer.

Why not a french door instead?
Less maintaince, double the opening size avalible if need be.

Sliding Patio Door


I have a home on FL coast, built in 2006, windows are Simonton Vinyl and have held up very well, doors are Plastpro in Vinyl and match the white vinyl windows, they are French Doors, I believe they call mine garden doors as they are almost all glass and fit a 6 ft opening. These have the wind rated hardware, including 3 latches built into the doors and very water resistant, far more than sliders. I agree with the guy who suggested French Style doors in place of sliders, as they also are far more energy efficient. You can get in impact or non impact glass, I think they also make a similar door in fiberglass.

If you in a high wind area I like to use out opening French doors. Reason being as the wind blows harder it trys to hold the door closed, not plow it open.
It also leaves more useable room inside the house.
