patio sliding door material

james_007August 31, 2012

I am looking for a replacemnet of my existing aluminum patio sliding door. I am in Boston area. I don't think the aluminum is a good option because there are condensations during the winter.

Then which material door I should buy? wood, fiberglass or vinyl?

There are good doors in all of those materials.

In order of expense, they will usually go from cheapest to most expensive as vinyl, fiberglass, and wood.

What do you want the door to look like?

Vinyl clad over wood is my vote.
