How to Deal With Common Patio Door Security Mistakes

Some homeowners are hesitant about having patio doors installed because of security issues. However, with proper installation and by choosing the quality hardware, your patio door can be just as secure as your entry door. How to Deal With Common Patio Door Security MistakesLearn about common patio door security mistakes and how to fix them from a local provider of energy-efficient windows and doors.

Avoid These Mistakes

Using Simple Latches – Your patio door should be at the same level of hardware security as your front door. Go for multi-point latches for hinged French door and reach-out latches for sliding doors. 

Choosing Single-Pane Glass – Single-pane glass isn’t only inefficient but also easier to break, which defeats the purpose of a lock. Multipane, ENERGY STAR® windows and doors won’t only help secure your home but also give you savings on heating and cooling costs.  

 Showing Too Much of Your Interior – While they can give you unobstructed outdoor views, sliding doors can show too much of your interior if it’s not installed on the right side of the house. If this is the case, then treatments like windows and blinds can help as well as using privacy film.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
