Stacked vs Pocket Sliding glass doors

Hi, we are in the process of signing a contract on a new home. We have to select structural features ASAP. we live in Fl and this will be a pool home. They have an option of stacked sliders opening from the center or pocket sliders opening from the center. There's also he option to open to one side. I'm trying to determine the difference between stacked and pocket because of price difference. I would think pocket doors would be preferred because they pocket away. However, the pocket option is $2k CHEAPER than the stacked option. Anyone have any idea why such a big price difference and why stacked is more than pocket?

Pocket doors are a pain to fix if the rail fails ( happened to us). I would go with the one that will put the least stress on the mechanism or the one with the best mechanism

Joanna, being in Florida myself I realize you are not talking about interior doors like everyone else is thinking, these are sliding glass exterior doors, correct? I have found that the sliders, usually three panels that pocket into a stuccoed recess are quite heavy to open since the last four feet you are sliding three doors.

Also the stacked doors are a pain if the get off track.. I watched when the guys came and fixed them at my friends in Florida and it seemed easy but was pretty pricey. I think the Stacked are more because of how much track is involved and they need to be perfect in order to slide and stack on one another..
