Signs That You Need a New Patio Door

Patio doors are a good asset for any home. However, even the finest patio door will eventually need to be replaced.

In this article, Renewal by Andersen® of Dallas and Fort Worth, a top provider of French doors, reveals the signs that your patio door has reached the end of its lifespan.


Condensation can encourage mold and mildew growth in your home. If you notice that your patio door is experiencing condensation, it may mean that the door’s seal is compromised, putting your home’s energy efficiency in jeopardy. Unfortunately, the only true solution to this problem is door replacement.

Operation Difficulties

If you’re having difficulty opening and closing your sliding doors, this may require replacement. Apart from being an inconvenience, a faulty door can be hazardous in the event of an emergency and it can also be a security risk. Contact a professional to inspect your doors and determine the best solution.

Air Leaks

To determine if your patio door is indeed suffering from air leaks, experts recommend that you close it and stand by the door. If you notice a change in the temperature of your home around that area, it means that your patio door is suffering from an air leak and may need to be replaced. Otherwise, you’ll be risking your home’s energy efficiency, leading to higher energy bills.
