Making the Most of Your New Patio Doors

Patio doors are a great addition to any home, featuring wide glass areas that let in ample amounts of sunlight, which can brighten the mood inside. Hinged French doors have a classic aesthetic appeal that complements a traditional home while minimalist sliding patio doors help save space and wouldn’t be out of place in a minimalist home. How do you make the most of a new patio door? 

Energy-Efficient Features 

Of course, sunlight can be too much of a good thing. Your interior may become uncomfortably warm if too much heat starts to build up inside, which is why we recommend looking for energy-efficient doors. 

Renewal by Andersen® doors have continuous weatherstripping and interlocking design features that help keep your home draft-free and reduce heating and cooling costs. 

Here’s a buying tip: Check if a patio door replacement has the ENERGY STAR® label. Only windows and doors that have met the EPA’s stringent performance standards have this label.  

Security Features 

Some homeowners are concerned about how unwanted guests can easily jamb sliding patio doors’ locks open easily. However, all types of doors are prone to being jammed open if they don’t have sufficient security features. 

Security won’t be an issue for our patio doors—our unique reach-out lock pulls the door panel to ensure your door is secure and airtight. And if you want added security for your home, our French patio doors also come with a five-point locking system for extra security. 

Customized Designs 

You can build on French patio doors’ Old-World charm by installing grilles and using unique colors. As part of our Signature Service, we customize each door according to our customers’ preferences and needs. For more design tips, you can consult one of our design experts.
