Swinging Patio Doors

A swinging patio door–sometimes known as a hinged patio door or a garden door–brings ample charm to your space. Swinging patio doors are available two styles: the French hinged door and the centered patio door. Allowing for natural light and easy access to the outside, swinging patio doors are an elegant addition to your home.

All swinging patio doors are available in custom sizes to suit your home. Find a pro or contact a distributor to purchase.

Compare French Hinged and Center Hinged Patio Doors

Swinging patio doors are available in two variations: French hinged and center hinged. Both styles are hinged and can swing into or out of your home. Below, we will dive into the differences between both swinging patio doors so that you can make the best decision for your home.

French Hinged Patio Door

French Hinged Patio Doors allow you to choose which way you want the door to swing; whether inward or outward.

A French hinged patio door is easy to open, affords a wide and beautiful view and adds elegance to any home. With both door panels opening, you will have more clearance than with a sliding patio door for bringing large items in or out of your home. Learn more here.

How much do French hinged patio doors cost?

The cost of a custom French hinged patio door is contingent upon style options, hardware finishes, and grid options. For an estimate on a French hinged patio door for your home, contact a Simonton pro here.

Center Hinged Patio Door

Center hinged patio doors exclusively open on one side. This patio door is perfect for those who prefer a swinging style door but do not have the clearance to allow both sides to swing open.
