Tips to Make the Most of Your Patio Door Replacement

You need a good patio door to access your deck or patio. There are dozens of styles, colors and materials you can choose from, and every one of them have their own sets of advantages and disadvantages. For example, French doors are a great stylish option to accentuate a beautiful outdoor living area. On the other hand, sliding doors are useful for homes with limited floor area due to their space-savvy operation. So, you need to be careful during the selection process.

Tips to Make the Most of Your Patio Door Replacement

Consider Daylighting Options

Brighter rooms can appear bigger than they actually are. This means that if your patio leads to a small landing area indoors, you can create a bigger and more welcoming environment as long as you keep things well-lit and airy. Combine this with convenient sliding patio doors, and you have the perfect recipe for a well-designed living area. This works incredibly well for homes whose patio doors happen to already face the general direction of the sun during the day.

Energy-Efficient Patio Doors

Aside from design and daylighting factors, energy efficiency should also be a priority. Large glass areas in patio doors can increase your solar heat gain coefficient, that is, the amount of heat that enters your home from sunlight. Today, there are modern glass and glazing options that can reduce indoor heat gain without sacrificing how much light they let inside. Talk to your professional about which glass solution is best for your new replacement patio doors.

Design Consultation

The best way to make replacing your patio doors go as smoothly as possible is to enlist the aid of skilled professionals. Do not attempt to DIY a patio door replacement as the risks simply do not justify the amount of money you could potentially save. Save yourself the trouble, and contact your local door and window company to get started on your project right away.

"The service provided by Renewal by Anderson is great, both on the sales and the installation side. Our sales representative was very accommodating and helpful. The installation crew was efficient and they all were professional. These are really nice windows and a great upgrade especially from builder-grade windows."

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
