Frenchwood and Narroline Patio Doors For Your Home

June 21, 2017

Patio doors these days are available in a bevy of options, with a selection of color, material, and design. Choosing can be overwhelming, especially for first-timers. Take a look at the following options from the experts in door installation, Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee.

Patio Doors

Types of Patio Doors

First, let us start with the basic types. A patio door can come in three types,: swinging, bi-fold, and sliding. Swinging French doors are good for porches and veranda, especially if you would like to emphasize the view once the doors are opened. If you want to do away with the traditional swinging doors, bi-fold ones that operate accordion style can be your option. Sliding, on the other hand, is the most common. Unlike swinging doors, this one requires less space and does not get in the way when opened.

Should you wish to install a sliding door, Renewal by Andersen offers two types of materials: Frenchwood® and Narroline®. The former type offers classic design and durability with its exterior feature made with reinforced High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass and Fibrex®frame. It can also be in hinged (swinging) or sliding style with adjustable self-lubricating rollers. The latter offers a contemporary look that will definitely suit a house with contemporary replacement windows.

Both Frenchwood and Narroline doors come in white, canvas, sandtone, or Terratone®. Accessories are also available for both options, such as hardware, grilles, and screens. If you are not sure which of these two suits your home, you can always consult our team during inspection or you can visit our website and go to the visualization tab for layout options.

Energy Efficiency Explained

Since Frenchwood and Narroline doors are both made with the same glass and framing material, you can be sure that it’s easier to maintain and won’t increase your energy bills. The glass contains a revolutionary coating that loosens any dirt upon exposure to sunlight. Unlike ordinary dual-pane glass, Low-E4 glass is 70% more efficient and can reduce your energy spending by up to 25% depending on the weather in your area.

Another benefit to consider is that this type of glass acts like a sunblock; it reflects ultraviolet (UV) rays harmful to your health and could damage your furniture. With Renewal by Andersen, we stand by the quality of our product and work with our 20-year limited warranty on Fibrex and glass and 10-year warranty on parts of the door such as screens, handles, finishes, and locks.

Hear From Our Customers

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!
