A patio door replacement project can help improve your home in many ways, from keeping your interior more comfortable to increasing the value of your property. Here are the warning signs that your patio doors need to be replaced:
- They’re Hard to Operate: Whether you have traditional hinged French doors or contemporary sliding doors, opening and closing your patio doors shouldn’t be a big deal. If your patio doors take a lot of effort to operate, this is either because of hardware issues or the frame material may have succumbed to changes in temperature. Renewal by Andersen® patio doors will make you forget you’ve ever had such problems.
- They’re in The Way: Your old patio doors may be cumbersome in your home. For instance, your French patio doors’ swing space may be blocked by recent remodeling or by new furniture. In this case, switching to gliding patio doors may help improve access. Alternatively, our Frenchwood® hinged patio door is available in an out-swinging version and a sliding French door version.
- You Feel Drafts Around Closed Patio Doors: Drafts indicate that your patio doors are not forming a proper seal when they’re closed. If installing new weatherstripping doesn’t solve the problem, it’s time to consider replacement. The best part about getting Renewal by Andersen replacement patio doors is their locking systems. Our sliding patio doors feature a reach-out lock system that creates a snug seal against the frame, while our hinged patio doors feature a five-point locking system that ensures consistent closure from top to bottom.
- Your Energy Bills Are Too High: Another consequence of having leaky doors is reduced energy efficiency, which causes your energy bills to soar. New patio doors help keep precious heat where you need it, reducing the burden on your heater. You can expect a significant reduction in your energy bills once your new patio doors are installed.
