FACTORS YOU SHOULD CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A PATIO DOOR

Your choice of patio doors has a big effect on the beauty of your outdoor space and your home’s comfort and energy efficiency. Consider several factors when selecting patio doors for your project. Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis explains what these factors are:

Factors You Should Consider When Choosing A Patio Door

Maintenance

Get a replacement patio door that will fit your lifestyle. It’s no use installing a beautiful door if you have no time to keep it in good condition. Fortunately, we offer patio doors that have very minimal maintenance requirements. For example, we offer doors clad with a water-resistant covering so it can stay impervious to the elements without losing its attractive appearance over time.

Style

Your patio door is a big part of your home’s exterior design and your patio’s appeal. Make sure your patio door’s exterior color and interior finish match the rest of your home. To help make things easier for homeowners, we make sure that our hinged and sliding patio doors come in colors and finishes that will look great with many home styles. We also allow you to customize several parts of our door, such as the hardware type and finish.

Operation

The way your doors open and close could affect access to your home, furniture arrangement and many other things. Hinged doors that open and swing wide need plenty of clearance. On the other hand, sliding doors are space-savers. Remember, however, that the sliding door’s design usually means that its door opening is not as wide as a hinged door.

Security

Patio doors secure one of the main entry points to your home, so you have to take that into account when choosing your door type. Fortunately, we offer several kinds of locking systems depending on the door type we install. These locking systems are all strong and secure.

Energy Efficiency

Patio doors tend to have large panes of glass, and this can allow heat to easily enter and escape your home. That’s why all of our patio doors come standard with our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. This glass is energy-efficient and will help keep solar heat away from your home in summer and prevent heat from escaping your interior in winter.

Our French doors and other patio door types can serve as wonderful additions to your home. Renewal by Andersen of St. Louis offers numerous customization options for our replacement patio doors and offers energy-efficient glass packages to fit your needs. We serve many areas, including St Louis, MO. Call us at (314) 310-3636 to learn more about our patio doors. You can also get a free estimate.

"Very pleased with installation of six windows and a ProVia entry door. I love the look of the windows and door. I am pleased that my wife is thrilled with the look of the door. She is very pleased that the bronze color fits in well with the color of the brick."

"I just had my Renewal by Andersen windows installed and couldn’t be happier, the entire process went very smoothly. The windows are high quality and look great. But the installers Roy, Zack and Jordan were the stars, they introduced themselves upon arrival walked me thru everything they were going to do and when they finished took me to each window to make sure I was completely satisfied. They were clean and courteous and I would definitely recommend and have them work in my home again."

"Wonderful experience with knowledgeable, competent employees. We had Andersen windows in a previous house & didn’t even consider anything else this time. After replacing our patio door almost two years ago, we replaced all our windows this year. What a difference over builder-grade windows, especially in the really cold temperatures we’ve had this year. Andersen windows may be a little more expensive than other brands, but they are top quality."
