Trying to do some research on slide & tilt patio doors right now and there isn't a whole lot out there about what's available in Ireland so wondering if anyone has a slide & tilt patio door? Is it good? Where did you source it in Ireland? Will I need to re-mortgage to get one?
I'm simply trying to solve a big problem I've had in my house since I moved a few years ago. My house is a townhouse and only has one room to the back which is the livingroom and the only window in the room is the sliding patio door. It's great in the summer but any other time I dread leaving it open to air the room as I absolutely dread mice and rats and don't want them getting indoors so never leave the door open unless I'm in the room. This means that it doesn't get aired nearly enough as in winter by the time I get home it is dark and cold and sitting with a door open isn't really an option.
As I absolutely do not want french doors opening either in or out of the room and I cannot see any sliding doors with an integral window that can be opened I'm beginning to think that a slide and tilt patio door may be my only option.
Any information would be a bonus - what a pity architects don't think of all practicalities when designing houses!
