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.
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.
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.
