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:

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.

Reviews

"Love the windows and patio door. We want to finish the whole house when we can financially. We give Anderson and employees, especially the sales rep Mike that came to our house, the highest rating. Mike was knowledgeable and courteous. Also not high pressure."
