Things to Consider Before Replacing Your Patio Doors

Homeowners choose to replace their patio doors for many reasons, from improving the look of their home to enhancing energy efficiency. When shopping for new patio doors, local patio door and window replacement company Renewal by Andersen® of Portland recommends considering the following features:

Maintenance Requirements

Your patio doors will be part of your home for many years. You probably won’t want to have to worry about scraping and repainting them every few years. This is why wood frames aren’t the most practical option. Composite frames are just as beautiful as wood but much lower maintenance.

The right type of glass can also make it even easier to clean and maintain your patio doors. Many of today’s patio door and window replacement products feature glass with exterior metallic oxide coatings. When activated by sunlight, they help remove water spotting on the glass.

Style

If you’re choosing the exact same patio door style as you had before, you may be missing out on an opportunity to rejuvenate your home’s beauty and functionality. For example, if furniture placement is a problem because of hinged doors, you could benefit from switching to sliding patio doors. Perhaps your home style calls for patio doors with traditional aesthetics and function, in which case French patio doors would be a better choice over sliding doors.

Workmanship Warranties

You need a patio door company that has a demonstrated track record of quality workmanship, with a strong workmanship warranty to back it up. Patio door failure is more often attributed to installation errors than manufacturing defects, which usually become evident within the first year after installation. This is why you need a good workmanship warranty.

Renewal by Andersen of Portland offers a wide selection of patio door and window replacement options that have these features, including a two-year limited warranty on installation.
