What You Should Know Before Replacing Patio Doors

Getting new patio doors can be a serious investment for any homeowner. A patio door is not just about convenience, but also about security, energy efficiency, beauty, indoor comfort and longevity.

What You Should Know Before Replacing Patio Doors

Before purchasing a new patio door, it’s best to find out more about the type of door you need and discussing its benefits with your patio door contractor. Here are some of the factors you should consider:

Customizable Styles

No two homeowners are exactly alike. You want some unique features that reflect your personality. It’s best to work with a contractor that offers customizable patio doors. You can select the style, finish, grille pattern and interior stain of your patio door.

Energy Efficiency

A large glass patio door is an excellent addition to your living space, but the large glass is also a highway for heat gain or loss. This is why you should get only energy-efficient doors, such as those we offer at Renewal by Andersen®. These doors have dual-pane glass, just like our energy-efficient windows, and they allow in natural light and offer great views of the outdoors while also blocking harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays and solar heat gain.

Door Location

Homes have different architectural styles and floor areas. It’s good to know that your patio door of choice will enhance your living space instead of limiting it. For example, if your old patio door took up too much space for operation, consider Renewal by Andersen’s contemporary sliding door designs. You don’t have to worry about the swing-out space as these doors slide open easily. These are perfect if you have furniture in the way of a swing-out door.

Modern and Classic Combination

You want a classic French door design, but, as in the preceding paragraph, you don’t have enough space for patio doors that swing to open. Renewal by Andersen has the answer as we offer sliding French doors. The timeless beauty of French doors is combined with the convenience of contemporary sliding doors. You can save space, but not sacrifice beauty.

"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!!"
