When Is the Right Time to Replace Your Patio Door?

Patio doors are designed to be sturdy and durable and at the same time capable of providing additional aesthetic value to your home. But no matter how well-built your patio door is, there will come a time when you have to replace it. Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis, a trusted window company, discusses some of the signs that typically indicate the need for patio door replacement.

When Is the Right Time to Replace Your Patio Door?

Gaps

Gaps are often the result of warping in the frame and/or sash. Warping, meanwhile, is usually caused by harsh weather, but it can also be the result of shoddy installation. Experts recommend replacing the door and frame as soon as gaps begin to form. This is to ensure safety and keep your home adequately insulated.

Difficulties in Opening and Closing the Door

Your patio door should open and close without difficulty. That said, when you can’t open or close it effortlessly, it could mean that there’s a mechanical issue or the door is approaching the end of its life span. In the case of sliding patio doors, the problem often occurs in the rollers, which could have been damaged or misaligned from the track. Much like window replacement service, door repair or replacement must be done as soon as possible. Leaving your patio door with malfunctioning components could impact your home’s security. For example, intruders or burglars would find it easy to access your home if you are unable to close or lock your patio door properly.

Condensation

Watch out for fog especially in the panes of your patio door glass. Condensation could potentially mean a seal has been broken, and this can allow air and moisture to infiltrate the panes. Of course, air and moisture in the panes could mean trouble for you, so you should consider replacing the entire patio door.

"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!!!"
