Replacing your patio doors is a big project, but it shouldn’t be stressful. By planning ahead and avoiding common mistakes, you can ensure a smooth and stress free experience and enjoy your new French or sliding doors for many years to come!
Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of Dallas and Fort Worth highlights key mistakes to avoid when planning your project.
Failing to Consider the Layout of the Space
You need to consider the layout of the room where the patio door will be installed when planning your project. If space is tight, then a French door might not work because it needs floor space to swing open. In this case, you might be better off with sliding doors, which glide open horizontally rather than swinging open like French doors. On the other hand, if you have plenty of space and your home has a classic style, hinged French doors are the perfect choice to improve the room’s overall aesthetic.
Not Getting a Free Consultation
Before you buy a patio door, take advantage of the free consultation most patio door replacement experts offer. This is especially critical if you’re considering custom doors for your home. An experienced door contractor will come to your home, take measurements and advise you on what type of door is best suited for your home’s available space.
Forgetting to Embrace Natural Light
Patio doors can help improve your home’s energy efficiency by allowing abundant natural light to enter your home, reducing your reliance on artificial lighting and allowing you to save on your monthly electric bills. With that in mind, when you’re having your patio door replaced, never forget to embrace natural light as it can help you in the long run.
