However, you also need them to protect you from unwanted intruders. When having sliding doors installed for your patio, here are some things you’ll need to keep them secure.
Secure Patio Doors
Additional Intuitive Locks
Most locks are simple in design. However, this means they’re also easy to access and unlock. This is why it pays to invest in additional locks that are out of view from the outside.

You can also add a foot lock to your sliding doors to keep them closed.
On the one hand, the view through your French doors can be a beautiful sight to the outside world. On the other hand, that view can also be seen by your neighbors and others who pass by your house. It would be a good idea to install a screen to obscure the view inside or reflective panels for the outside. Alternatively, you can buy some blinds or curtains and shut them whenever you need to.
It pays to find a good frame for your patio doors. Solid metal frames are generally sturdier than those made of vinyl or fiberglass, ensuring maximum protection for your doors and your home in general.
