3 TERRIFIC TIPS TO CHOOSE THE BEST PATIO DOOR HARDWARE

In patio door design, the hardware is a small detail that makes a big difference. It contributes to the function and beauty of the unit, and it’s an essential part that completes the utility of the whole. It should never be an afterthought because a wrong choice can affect the success of your patio door replacement.

3 Terrific Tips Choose Best Patio Door Hardware

To outfit your patio doors with the perfect hardware, Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis shares some practical pieces of advice:

Get Cues From Your Home

Your patio door hardware must be consistent with the existing theme in your home design. If the fixtures in your space are predominantly chrome, choosing brass could be visually jarring. Think of it as something that ties everything together; when it can coexist with the rest of your design elements, expect marvelous results.

We provide a dual hardware option, allowing you to choose different pieces for hinged or sliding patio doors. This way, your replacement units can mesh with your home design inside and out.

Worry About Tarnish and Corrosion

Inferior hardware finishes deteriorate with time and everyday use. Not all that glitters is gold, as they say. It’s imperative to choose your patio door hardware with foresight to ensure its functionality and beauty over the long term.

At Renewal by Andersen of St. Louis, we offer you the impressive Estate™ collection of hardware with eight metallic finishes. Our brass, chrome  and nickel options have a special coating that protects the desired finish against tarnish and corrosion. Our bronze finishes have a “living” patina, allowing them to become lovelier with time and use.

Put a Premium on Safety

Exterior doors safeguard one of your home’s main entry points. This is why you should choose contemporary or traditional French doors with a sophisticated locking mechanism for security. An exterior keyed lock or a simple latch alone won’t suffice.

Moreover, invest in every optional lock available because you can never be too safe. For instance, our sliding door systems can come with an auxiliary foot lock that offers another layer of protection.

Hardware is only one of the many details you can customize in Renewal by Andersen of St. Louis’s patio doors. Learn about the rest during our initial visit. Call us at (314) 310-3636 today to schedule your FREE, in-home consultation in St. Louis, MO, to discuss your project in detail.

"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!!"
