Replacing your patio door is a significant investment that shouldn’t be taken lightly. There are a few important factors to consider before initiating the project.
In today’s blog, the leading replacement windows contractor, Renewal by Andersen® of Greater Philadelphia, shares some tips as you plan your door replacement project.
Choose the Right Style
The two main categories of doors are sliding and French. If you are looking to maximize natural light and energy efficiency, you can’t go wrong with a sliding patio door. If you’re aiming for a more classic look, a French patio door is the way to go.
Consider the Maintenance Requirements
Whether you’re replacing your windows or doors, always keep in mind how much maintenance the new unit will require. If you have a busy lifestyle, you’ll probably want a low-maintenance door. For example, vinyl patio doors don’t require much maintenance, while wood patio doors are beautiful but require lots of maintenance.
Hire an Experienced Contractor
Installing a patio door is not a DIY task. Minor mistakes could compromise your door’s energy efficiency and security, which is why you should only entrust this project to an experienced, reputable professional.
