What Is the Best Material for a Patio Door?

What is the Best Material for a Patio Door?Patio doors can be constructed using many different materials, just like windows. So, how do you know which is the best option when purchasing a new patio door for your home? The truth is that there are pros and cons that could be argued for any choice, so allow us to explain why we choose vinyl here at Frey Construction.

The Benefits of Vinyl Patio Doors

Vinyl continues to be the No. 1 material choice for both windows and patio doors for homeowners across the region. And, when you consider some of the benefits vinyl offers, it’s easy to see why.


Vinyl patio doors may be plastic-based, but innovations in the material’s manufacturing make it possible for it to emulate the look of other materials, such as natural wood. Plus, vinyl doors are typically available in a wide range of interior and exterior colors/finishes, for a look that perfectly suits your taste and complements your home.


Vinyl can stand up to the harshest elements, like torrential rains, heavy snow and ice, and even hail, without peeling, flaking, rotting, or fading. Vinyl is also resistant to scratching, denting, and warping.


Vinyl is rather well known as a more cost-effective solution than other materials, such as wood or fiberglass. Vinyl patio doors offer effective energy efficiency, longevity, and easy maintenance, all at an affordable price point.

Choosing the Right Vinyl Patio Doors

Not all vinyl patio doors are created equal, however. If you’re thinking about having a new patio door installed at your home, it’s important to choose an installer who uses high-quality doors from leading manufacturers. At Frey Construction, we’re trusted throughout the area for providing the best products and installation service in the area – in fact, we’ve been improving local homes since 1995 with outstanding products and our masterful craftsmanship.
