Why You Need Sliding Doors on Your Remodeling This Season

Why You Need Sliding Doors on Your Remodeling This Season

August 16, 2019

Open floor plans have long been a staple of many home remodeling projects. Today, this layout remains hugely popular, creating a need for windows, doors and other elements that help complement the freed-up space it provides. Large sliding doors lead the list of open layout features that homeowners are lining up to have.

Let our home remodeling experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee give you some of the top reasons sliding doors are in this season.


Unlike most types of doors, sliding doors occupy very little floor space in its operation. Because of this, homeowners can make use of a little bit of extra space to place other items like a console table for main hallways, large bureaus for memorabilia in the living room or even some potted plants to breathe life in an otherwise boring corner.

Energy Efficiency

For homes in warmer climates, large windows and doors allow more air to circulate the home, providing fresh and cool air to help improve your overall comfort. Moreover, the added glass area can brighten up a room better than a lighting fixture during the day. For homes with colder climates, good planning can help more of the sun’s heat enter your home, reducing the need to depend on your gas and electricity for warmth.


There’s a reason why sliding doors have been a favorite of both homeowners as well as windows contractor— design flexibility. Spice up a classic American Prairie with sliders that open up a cramped living room; blend entryways seamlessly with the muted aesthetics of postmodern design; or, create a unique transition between your indoors and outdoors with some sliding patio doors.

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.

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!!!

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.
