Patio Door Customization: Upgrades to Consider

When having your patio doors replaced, experts recommend that you don’t simply replace the old door with the same version. Instead, it might benefit you to make a few improvements here and there, especially if you’re already upgrading to a custom patio door. But what exactly are these patio door upgrades?

Here door and window contractor Renewal by Andersen® of Dallas/Fort Worth reveals the possible upgrades you can consider when customizing a new patio door.



If your old patio doors were made of a certain material, such as wood, then consider upgrading to a different one during the replacement process. You can have your pick of vinyl for energy efficiency and affordability, fiberglass for its low maintenance features or aluminum if you’re looking for a cost-effective material.


According to door and window installation pros, the style of your new patio door is another upgrade you can consider. You can choose between hinged and sliding variants. If you want to save space and create a smooth, effortless transition from the indoors to the outdoors, experts recommend that you choose a sliding patio door. However, if you want to add a hint of elegance to your home, then consider a hinged patio door instead.


On the other hand, if you want to add to your new patio door’s aesthetic appeal, it’s important to choose the right grilles. When it comes to grilles, you’ll have an abundance of style options to choose from, such as colonial, diamond or perimeter grilles.


The color of your door can affect how it fits with the rest of your home, and as such, can impact the door’s aesthetic appeal as well. Thankfully, when you’re choosing a new patio door, most manufacturers offer a wide variety of color options that are sure to fit well with your home.


When you’re customizing your patio door, you can choose between various hardware finishes such as bronze, nickel and polished brass.
