What are the main advantages to having patio doors?

Clearer views of your garden

Patio doors are well known for having very slim sightlines since they have more glass and less frame than other door styles. This can improve the amount of natural light that comes into your home, giving you a beautiful view from inside with no unappealing obstructions blocking it.

Perfect for outdoor gatherings and parties in the summer

Patio doors are the perfect summertime feature. Whether you are barbecuing with your family or relaxing on a sunny day with your friends, it will be much easier to enjoy your time outdoors when you don’t have to keep opening and closing doors when you need to enter or exit. Patio doors are constructed of a double slider that makes moving between inside and outside almost effortless.

Reduce the cost of your energy bills

If you are looking to save on energy costs year-round, you need to make sure your home has quality windows and doors in place. Energy efficient patio doors can help by boosting air venting throughout your property via the usage of double-glazed window panes to cut down on heat loss. Higher quality glass also helps reduce noise travelling between rooms so that you can sleep peacefully. Our range of contemporary external doors have cost-effective features to ensure you reduce your energy bills and increase the natural light in your home.

Increase your property’s value

Even if you aren’t planning to sell your home in the near future, making it more attractive and desirable to potential buyers is never a bad thing. Double-glazed patio doors, particularly when combined with an extension of your existing decking area, are an ideal way to add a modern touch to any home whether you are intending to sell it or not.

High level of security

It may at first seem to you that glass patio doors won’t offer extensive safety and security features, but you may be surprised to learn that they come with a variety of mechanisms that provide absolute protection. This includes multipoint locks and steel reinforced frames which are fitted to toughened or laminated glass. Security systems such as the anti-lift blocks are offered as standard and you have the option of anti-pick cylinder locks if needed, so you can have complete peace of mind and sleep soundly knowing your home is safe from intruders.

Less maintenance needed

Another key benefit of patio doors from Clydebuilt is that they are low maintenance. Of course, for those homeowners who are looking to achieve the very best results with their new patio doors, regular cleaning is recommended. However, most homeowners today just don’t have the time to regularly clean and maintain their doors. With our patio doors, all that is required is the occasional wipe with a sponge and warm soapy water and the doors will remain looking brand new for years to come.

Patio Door FAQs

French doors are installed as a pair & fitted onto hinges which enable them to open outwards or inwards. Patio doors are more of a catch-all term that refers to any set of doors that open directly onto a paved area. This means patio doors can include entries that open with a slide, whereas French doors do not.

uPVC doors are very good at being soundproof due to the conducting properties of the material, but it is good to note that if you live on a busy main road, whilst it may reduce it drastically, it may not eliminate it together.
In order to ensure a good fit for your new uPVC door, it is essential to have the doorway accurately measured by our installers. There are many factors to think of when measuring, and you need to get the height and width from the outside opening correct; you also need to take into account the thickness of the plaster & the floor height too. For glazed rear doors, including French Doors getting the right size is essential to be certain that the doors open & close correctly and provide access.

There are a range of materials available when it comes to patio doors and the best one for your home will be based on multiple factors including your personal preference and the style of your property.


uPVC has come a long way in terms of popularity over the years due to technological advancements. It’s now the material of choice for homeowners who want to get an alternative look in comparison with other materials but can’t afford something as demanding as wood especially when it comes down to its maintenance needs which are more challenging than many others like uPVC. Also, uPVC provides protection for your family and belongings because you can work it into pretty much any design, and we provide you with locks that work across all materials including uPVC and can keep everything safe.


Aluminium has become regularly used in more modern homes, mainly because of its sleek, contemporary design; however, it can also work well in a more traditional home for those looking for a futuristic twist. Aluminium doors were not thermally efficient in the past but the advancements in aluminium materials as well as thermal break technology that provides an energy saving solution now means aluminium has become a front runner for many homeowners.

Usually installing patio doors is considered as a permitted development (PD), which means no planning permission is required, but if you live in an area with PD restrictions, then measures would need to be taken accordingly. If your property comes under a conservation area or lies within an area of outstanding natural beauty, limitations could apply. Also, if you live in a listed building you will need to get consent before you are able to make any changes to your windows and doors.

Sliding patio doors are installed by sliding them into tracks, one behind the other. The weight of the opening rests on a pair of floor-mounted housing units that need to be in place when the door is installed. These allow you to decide whether the doors are to be stacked inside or outside.

The choice between a sliding door and a folding door will be based on your home and your needs. A broad guideline to go by when thinking about which you want is if you have a large garden, countryside views, or simply prefer to see as much of the outside world as possible without obstruction, then it would make more sense to get sliding doors since they won’t have as much frame visible.

Folding doors may be the preferable choice if you have a smaller area, and you want to connect the inside of your home to this area better. Sliding doors will give you larger glass panels, better views, improved light transmission, and is the ideal product for creating the desirable ‘glass wall’, which makes them very popular with modern extensions.

Sliding patio doors in Stirling are a versatile option for any home. With an extensive range of sliding patio doors on offer from Clydebuilt Home Improvements, you will be able to find the perfect type for your home no matter whether it’s traditional or more contemporary.
