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.

"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."
