A patio door replacement can dramatically improve how your home looks and feels. To ensure the best results, you need to plan carefully so you can avoid common pitfalls along the way. Read on as we’ll share some pointers.
Don’t Make Your Decision Based on the Price Alone — You’ll likely be doing some comparison shopping before you make your final choice. While price is of course a key consideration, it shouldn’t be the only one. Unscrupulous contractors purposely cut corners to achieve a low bid. Make it a point to review every quote carefully, make sure it matches your requirements and weigh it against your budget.
Don’t Overlook the Size of the Room — Hinged patio doors require floor space to swing open and closed, which means they work best in uncluttered rooms. If you don’t have the swing space for hinged doors, consider sliding patio doors. If you prefer the aesthetic of French doors but have limited floor space, consider our sliding French door option for the best of both worlds.
Don’t Take the DIY Route — Patio door installation is a big job that requires skills and experience. Even a small error made during the installation can compromise the weathertightness and security of your patio doors. It’s best to leave this job to the pros.
Don’t Neglect Natural Lighting — Working with a custom patio door company like Renewal by Andersen gives you the advantage of designing patio doors that are optimized for maximum natural lighting. If you are concerned about increased indoor cooling requirements or faded fabrics and furniture, our High Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages feature coatings that can block UV rays and heat from the sun.Renewal by Andersen of Seattle is your leading provider of hinged and gliding patio doors.
