Give homeowners what they need
Carmen Velilla, brand manager at PatioMaster, says sliding patios offer homeowners the perfect combination of aspiration and practicality.
Turn on any home improvement or home search programme and you see the aspirations of today’s homeowners: they want large, open plan living spaces that are flooded with natural light.
A key part of the dream home is the large expanse of glass that opens onto the garden and creates an indoor outdoor space.
The simplicity of the design and the linear movement of the facade mean that sliding patios deliver the large expanse of glass that homeowners are looking for. In fact, when the doors are closed, they give a wider expanse of glass than the bifold alternative. And let’s face it, as we’re all too well aware after shivering through the first five months of this year, the British climate means the doors are likely to be closed more often than they’re open.
It’s this combination of visual appeal and practicality that is so appealing to homeowners and it’s a key selling point for fabricators and installers.
Quality is something that is important to highlight in any sale, especially when a space is being remodelled or big changes are being made. Every homeowner wants to feel confident in the investment they’re making and it’s here where PatioMaster really delivers.
Features such as the easy glide, stainless steel rollers and track system mean our doors are easy to use and have a long service life as well.
They are available in two-, three- and four-pane options with a triple track option coming soon. They have a 70mm outerframe, accommodate standard 28mm IGUs, and can achieve U-values as low as 1.2W/m2K.
Security features include a multipoint locking system with a deadbolt and one-piece keep, a dual purpose anti-lift/sash stabilising trim, and a patented interlock shootbolt system. Our doors are PAS 24: 2012/16 and Part Q accredited as standard, and where security is critical, a Secured by Design accredited version is available too.
Every PatioMaster door is precision manufactured to order using top-quality components by our skilled team and comes with a ten-year guarantee.
Alongside the focus on the door itself, fabricators and installers need to stay aware of the bigger picture. Homeowners don’t just want a revitalised space that transforms their lifestyle. They also want to achieve it without any hassle. This means offering knowledgeable, expert advice during the sales process and working cleanly, tidily and professionally during the installation process. In this way you can make every step of their home improvement journey a pleasure.
Sliding patio doors are the practical answer to creating the living spaces of homeowners’ dreams. Fabricators and installers that highlight the advantages they offer and combine this with exceptional service are best placed to capitalise on the opportunities.
