PRACTICAL TIPS: CHOOSING THE BEST PATIO DOOR FOR YOUR HOME
When you want to enhance your home and lifestyle, a sturdy patio door complete with glazing is a good choice. This fixture contributes to the aesthetic appeal of your indoors and outdoors so it is imperative that you focus on certain considerations before you decide on the right product.
Practical Tips: Choosing the Best Patio Door for Your Home
Renewal by Andersen® of Arkansas, your local door replacement contractor, shares the following practical tips to help you select the best patio door for your home.
Consider Options for Opening and Closing
The patio doors’ configuration influences the way you enter and exit your home. When you have a large opening and enough floor space, consider two hinged doors. With these, you can utilize the capability of glass in terms of daylighting and framing outdoor views, and accommodate the door’s operation. When you want to save on floor space, choose the sliding type.
Consider the Locking Mechanism
Patio doors protect one of the most important entryways in your home, which is why it is not enough that you have such fixtures with only a simple lock. Fortunately, today’s hinged French doors and sliding patio doors are equipped with impregnable reach-out lock systems that provide increased security and weathertightness. Locked at multiple points, you can be sure of the utmost protection from possible intrusion.
Consider the Cladding Material
Popular patio doors nowadays require little to no maintenance. Such products utilize wood as their strong base, with low-upkeep sheathing to protect the material against moisture and other causes of damage. Here at Renewal by Andersen®, we offer patio doors with cladding composed of either rigid vinyl or urethane-based coating for an attractive appearance and long-term durability.
For your new door installation project, trust our design consultants to guide you with your selection. Our traditional French doors and contemporary sliding doors are fully customizable, allowing you to feature either one of them as a centerpiece of your home.
