Patio doors are the key to connecting your indoor and outdoor spaces. When properly installed, they can infuse your living area with natural light and transform its ambiance.
Like windows, patio doors come in a variety of styles. To make sure your new doors are an ideal fit for your home, consider these factors before choosing a style:
Sliding doors are one of the most common patio door options, and for good reason. They provide a smooth transition that blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor living, with large glass panels letting in sunlight and views of the outdoors.
Sliding patio doors are also available with a variety of glass options, including insulated windows that help lower your energy costs and tinted glass to increase privacy while maintaining natural light and views. This makes them ideal for homes that want to connect internal living spaces and create a more connected, sociable home.
Sliding doors are top-hung, which makes them more durable than bottom-rolling patio doors that require more frequent maintenance because they are exposed to dirt and debris that can wear down the track. Sliding doors are also more flexible than French or bi-fold doors, which makes them a great choice for homes with larger openings.
For homeowners who want the classic look of traditional patio doors, our french door styles can help. These doors feature large glass panes that create an inviting portal to your outdoor space. They can be paired with single or two-door configurations and are engineered for easy operation and maintenance.
The composite stiles and rails on our french patio doors can withstand high impact, while the fiberglass door skin resists splintering, warping, rotting, and denting. The standard LoE 366 insulated glass with Argon also helps reduce energy costs.
Upgrading your patio doors can help bring in abundant natural light, transforming the ambiance of your indoor living spaces. They can also improve your home’s energy efficiency, reducing heating and cooling costs. We offer a wide range of options to suit your taste and budget. And, as a Renewal by Andersen dealer, we can provide one of the strongest window and patio door replacement limited warranties you’ll find.
When opened, a set of bi-fold doors creates a seamless connection between your home and outdoor living space. They provide a wide expanse of glass that helps maximize your view and enhance natural light penetration. These doors also feature a space-saving design that takes up less frame area than sliding patio doors. They can be fitted with a traffic door on one panel that allows easy passage in and out of the room.
When choosing a bi-fold door, look for insulated glass that can help improve indoor comfort and reduce energy costs. A weathered threshold is also a good choice for protection against rainwater and inclement weather.
Some manufacturers offer different options, such as whether the threshold is level or sloped. If you live in an area prone to storms, consider doors with a sloped threshold that will help to prevent water from collecting underneath the patio door. Security is another important factor to consider, and most bi-fold doors have a multi-point locking system that secures at various points of the track instead of just at one point.
