The Makings of Reliable Patio Doors

The Makings of Reliable Patio Doors

March 24, 2017

Rotten, drafty, and jerky patio doors require immediate replacement. Instead of spending more energy due to the leaks, investing in new ones that help keep your indoor heat where it’s supposed to be. Replacement units can reinforce your home’s security and increase its curb appeal, too.

Just like entry doors, you need to look for the right features for your next patio door replacement. This way, you can expect optimum performance for years to come. Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee recommends you look for the following features when buying patio doors:

Impregnable Design

Reliable patio doors are durable against any weather condition. They have heavy and thick frames that don’t fold under pressure. Compared with average units, they feature multiple lock points to ensure safety.

Our hinged French patio doors, for example, have a five-point locking system where one panel clamps tightly onto the other. In addition, the other panel fastens itself deep into the header and threshold for uncompromising security.

Adequate Opening

Local building codes require doors used for exiting to have an opening of a certain height and width. Depending on your available wall space, such requirements may affect your decision in choosing between swinging- and sliding-type units.

At Renewal by Andersen of Milwaukee, we’re updated on the latest local codes. We’ll help you design your patio doors that meet your functional and aesthetic needs while considering construction standards.

Energy-Efficient Glass

As glass would make up most of your patio doors, you should put a premium on glazing. The right glass technology would keep your indoors naturally comfortable all year round. We offer different glass packages for unique energy performance. Our solutions provide solar heat reflectivity, UV protection, and visible light transmittance. We promote maximum daylighting while sending the sun’s undesirable rays back to their source.

Maintenance-Free Frames

Wood is the most sought-after material, but it is susceptible to moisture. To keep it beautiful and structurally sound, you need to spend on routine paint jobs over the years. With our patio doors, you can expect long-lasting performance with little maintenance. All of our units come with a protective coating that ensures waterproofing properties. With their weather-resistant finish, their rigid wood core would remain intact throughout their service life.

Hear From Our Customers

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!!!

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.
