The Makings of Reliable Patio DoorsMarch 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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
