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.

"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!!"
