DISTINGUISHING GREAT PATIO DOORS FROM NOT-SO-GREAT ONES

Patio doors often don’t get the attention they deserve. As exterior units, they help tick the right boxes to make your space as livable as possible. If you choose the wrong products, your home would underperform in certain areas.

Distinguishing Great Patio Doors From Not So Great Ones

To choose great patio doors over not-so-great ones, make sure your replacement units do the following.

Help Burglarproof Your Home

All exterior doors come with at least a simple lock, but many of them aren’t that reliable when it comes to intruder deterrence. Experienced burglars can pick the single deadbolts in hinged units and simple latches in sliding ones nine times out of ten. To increase your defense against break-ins, invest in an advanced locking system and take advantage of every measure of security available at your disposal.

At Renewal by Andersen of St. Louis, our swinging French doors are equipped with a 5-point locking mechanism that secures both panels when activated. On the other h and, our sliding units have a unique Andersen reach-out lock that pulls the operating panel to the jamb tightly. It also comes with an optional auxiliary foot lock, which fastens the active door to the threshold. An exterior keyed lock is available in all of our patio units.

Provide a Wide Entry

Gone are the days that glazed doors only provide a means of access in and out of your home. They’re now used to visually connect your interior to your outdoor spaces and the surrounding l andscapes. With multiple opening options to choose from, we offer you plenty of ways to maximize your wall aperture.

Make Maintenance a Picnic

In the 21st century, patio door maintenance should no longer that big of a concern. The best units have a sturdy core covered with a waterproof and fade-resistant skin. We protect our doors by either a urethane base finish or a rigid vinyl sheath to make cleaning a breeze and eliminate periodic painting.

Contribute to Curb Appeal

No matter where you install your hinged or sliding patio doors, make sure they enhance the overall look of your home inside and out. Apart from choosing the right color, put a premium on the hardware style because God is in the detail.

At Renewal by Andersen of St. Louis, we offer a broad range of customization options to let you design your patio doors your way. We use our high-performance glass on them too to prevent unwanted heat gain and help keep your desired indoor climate.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
