Tips on Choosing the Right Patio Door for Your Home

June 13, 2018

People don’t always pay attention to their patio doors. These doors, however, are an important design element that adds interest to your interior and exterior space. Renewal by Andersen of Milwaukee, a leading door replacement company in the area, shares some useful tips on choosing the perfect patio door style for your upcoming home improvement project.

Tips on Choosing the Right Patio Door for Your Home

Consider Space

Does your home have enough space to accommodate a hinged patio door? Remember that French patio doors can swing outward, so you may have to move the furnishings that can obstruct the opening. Another option is to install a sliding door, which can help you maximize space. It moves horizontally along a track, which means it can open without using extra space.

Think of the Overall Architectural Design

Your patio doors can reflect your home’s theme. For instance, French patio doors can match traditional homes because of their classic design. Sliding doors, on the other hand, have a contemporary vibe due to the extensive use of glass.

Pick the Right Colors

Use a color that can complement your home’s wall color. For instance, brown door frames blend well with muted tones. For a bolder look, use dark framing materials to make your patio doors stand out.

Be Meticulous About the Hardware

Even the smallest details matter when it comes to your patio doors. The wrong hardware can affect the entire look of your patio doors. Pick a door handle or knob that can add character to your patio door.

Prioritize Quality

Investing in a subpar set of patio doors can only cause more problems in the long run. Do not attempt to minimize installation costs  by choosing unreliable products. Instead, spend your hard-earned money on durable patio doors that can stand the test of time.

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!!!
