Many Options to Choose From
There are a variety of oversized patio doors from several manufacturers to choose from. Woodland selected the Marvin multi-slide to display and compare with oversized doors from Andersen or Pella. Marvin offers three basic options, the Ultimate Multi-slide door, the Ultimate Lift and Slide door, and the Bi-Fold Door. Selecting the right door depends on your home’s layout and how you want to use the door. Multi-slide doors are versatile with multiple size options, for instance, lift and slide doors may give you a broader expanse of glass while folding doors may work best where a wider threshold track isn’t feasible. What’s important is to understand your options early in the planning stage in order to understand which product is best-suited for the opening under consideration.
An Integral Part of the Home
In fact, we encourage homeowners, contractors and architects to select the right door at the earliest planning phase in order to prepare the opening as these doors aren’t installed the same way as other patio doors. People who want large openings to their patio, deck or sunroom want the doors to have minimal tracks, which interrupt the flow between the spaces. In order to deliver a seamless transition between the spaces, the threshold must be virtually level with the floor. With a recessed track, it’s vital that a water management system is part of the construction plan.
Having our new Marvin Multi-Slide door in the showroom gives homeowners and contractors the opportunity to see exactly how the door operates, the structural considerations and how the doors are finished to ensure optimal performance. Structural headers to support the doors weight, properly prepared lower thresholds for a seamless transition. Stacked or pocket door configurations are all part of the planning phase. Remember, how many doors you need determines your wall depth.
