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. 

Renewal by Andersen® Patio Door Hardware

At Renewal by Andersen, we offer a wide range of styles and finishes of patio door hardware. Our gliding patio door locks feature a unique Andersen® reach-out locking system that pulls the door panel tightly into the jamp for weather tightness and improved security. You also have the option to add a gliding door auxiliary foot lock for added security when the door is locked. It also allows you to have the operating panel partially open. 

Meanwhile, our hinged patio door locks have a five-point locking system that improves energy efficiency and increases level of security. They can also come in an optional handle extension kit, which creates more clearance for shades and blinds.

"I can't say enough about Renewal by Andersen. From our initial sit down with the salesman to the final touches being put on our new windows, the whole experience was great! The windows look amazing & the installers were very careful to keep everything clean & cause minimal disruption in my home. Yes, they may be a little expensive, but you pay for what you get. These are quality windows installed by trained professionals. Communication was great & time frame was faster than i expected. They really deliver! I literally had nothing to worry about accept writing the check. I would strongly recommend this company to others! And I'll be calling them back out in the Spring to replace the last 3 windows on my house!"
