How to Choose the Perfect Patio Door for Your HomeAugust 09, 2017
If you have an aging patio door that isn’t functioning well, now is the time to start thinking about replacing it. The question is, with all the different styles of patio doors today, how do you know which to choose? It can be a tough decision, but here are some tips on how to choose the best patio door for your home.
- Consider space requirements. Swing space, swing direction, and furniture and wall placement all have to be considered when deciding on the best door style for your situation. When possible, choose , such as hinged French patio doors, that will widen your entryway and provide easier access to your outdoor space. However, if saving space is a priority, sliding patio doors are a better option. These work well for balconies and small patios, as well as homes where an inswing door would block furniture or interrupt traffic flow.
- Look for low-maintenance features. The right patio doors become a focal point for your home, so it’s essential to keep them clean and well-maintained at all times. Patio doors see a lot of use and abuse, especially throughout the warmer months, so you want to choose a door made of material that is strong, durable and easy to maintain. All the doors manufactured by Renewal by Andersen fit these specifications and are also easy to clean.
- Make energy efficiency a priority. While style and beauty are important, energy efficiency should be at the top of the list as well when choosing a patio door. Renewal by Andersen offers several High-Performance™ glass options that help homeowners save money on energy bills year-round while also protecting furnishings from harmful UV rays that can cause them to fade and break down prematurely.
