Main Characteristics All Reliable Patio Doors Have in Common

Buying a replacement patio door requires careful consideration of several key factors. The right product will contribute to the overall livability of your home, while the wrong one will do the opposite.

Main Characteristics All Reliable Patio Doors Have In Common

Here are the qualities you should think about when planning your patio door installation:

Sturdy

Assigned to secure one of your home’s primary entry points, your patio door can’t be flimsy. Be particular about its material and construction so it’s heavy enough to deter potential intruders.

Unlike interior doors, glazed, exterior door systems must have a solid core with thick glass panes. Renewal by Andersen® of Portland patio doors have raw, laminated veneer lumber sash and treated pine frame for maximum durability.

Impregnable

Don’t skimp on locks because you can never be too safe. Always choose a product equipped with a sophisticated locking mechanism. This is especially important when buying sliding doors with simple latches since they tend to be a liability to home security.

Well Insulated

Most solid-core doors are excellent insulators because they are built with real wood as the substrate. However, continuous weatherstripping separates the most energy-efficient unites from the rest. An interlocking design helps keep your home draft-free.

Low Maintenance

Pay attention to the cladding material covering the solid core of your desired product. In addition to being fade-resistant, it must be immune to moisture to protect the wood underneath from decay. Doors with a low-maintenance finish usually don’t require periodic scraping or repainting and only need occasional, basic cleaning.

Much like our replacement windows, our replacement patio doors are designed to offer the best balance among beauty, durability, energy efficiency and maintenance requirements. With plenty of customization options, your new exterior doors can be designed your way.
