Patio doors make great additions to any home. They bridge the gap between your interior and exterior, which extends your view and makes your living space feel larger. On top of that, a new patio door also gives you the opportunity to physically extend your living space and make the most of your underused exterior.
In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Dallas and Fort Worth shares tips to keep in mind when investing in new patio doors.
There are two main types of patio doors: the classic French style, which is hinged, and the more modern sliding door style. Standard French doors swing open and close, which means they require more floor space so they can be operated properly. This means they are usually the practical choice for rooms with ample floor clearance to accommodate them.
Sliding doors, on the other hand, don’t require any floor space to operate, making them ideal for smaller or more cramped rooms. They do require more wall space to operate, however, so keep this in mind if you’re leaning toward sliding doors.
French doors are the usual choice for traditional and more design-heavy homes due to their classic style. This is in contrast to sliding doors, which are more minimalist and therefore more modern looking.
Finally, you need to prioritize energy efficiency when investing in new patio doors. At Renewal by Andersen, our patio doors boast High-Performance™ Low-E4® Glass that’s 56% more energy-efficient during summer and 47% more energy-efficient during winter compared to ordinary double-pane glass.
