Select a Style

There are many styles to choose from when it comes to patio doors. One of the most commonly used designs is sliding doors. These are large glass panes fixed on a frame. The panels glide left or right along the track. Sliding glass doors are ideal space savers because of their orientation. With this style, you won’t have to worry about any indoor or outdoor furniture or décor blocking the doorway.

Swinging patio doors are also popular options today. Most homes use hinged French doors because of their elegance and class. When you choose swinging doors, always allow appropriate space for opening.

Choose Durable and Energy-Efficient Materials

Your new patio doors should withstand everyday use and different weather conditions. Picking the right framing material and glass option can lead to great savings in terms of repair and energy efficiency.

For long-lasting performance against elements, sliding and French doors from Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis are made of our durable Fibrex® material. Our composite material has the strength of wood combined with the low maintenance feature of vinyl. It is also resistant to rot and decay. Fibrex is also a great insulator. We also use High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass, our most energy-efficient glass package available.

Pick Stylish and Functional Add-Ons

For your patio doors in St. Louis, consider curb appeal and protection. The colors, finishes, and hardware that you choose should complement the theme of your patio and your home’s interior. As for protection, consider installing locks for enhanced security and screens for protection against insects.

At Renewal by Andersen, we have a wide range of color options and finishes that will match any architectural style. You can also pick from eight different handle styles for your doors. For added curb appeal, we also offer different grille patterns.

To keep you secure, we use a reach-out and five-point locking systems for sliding and hinged patio doors, respectively. We can also install optional auxiliary foot locks and exterior keyed locks. To keep insects from entering your home, we also have insect screens available for both styles.
