Patio Door Replacement Projects: What You Shouldn’t Do

While they may not seem like it, patio doors are actually important parts of your home. This is because not only do they allow you to enjoy the outdoors from the comfort of your home but they also allow you to improve your property’s aesthetic appeal and energy efficiency. As such, if your patio door is at the end of its lifespan, it’s best that you have it replaced when needed. However, when you’re replacing your patio door, window and door replacement experts say that there are a few things you shouldn’t do.

Patio Door Replacement Projects: What You Shouldn’t Do

These include:


Not Getting a Free Consultation


When you’re having your patio doors replaced, it’s highly recommended that you first get a free consultation with a professional, especially if you intend to explore the possibility of custom doors. By doing so, professionals can assess your needs and determine what replacement patio door is best suited for your requirements.


If you intend to get a free consultation for your patio door replacement, don’t hesitate to turn to Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis, the experts in installing patio doors and vinyl replacement windows.


Forgetting to Embrace Natural Light


According to experts, one of the mistakes that you should never do when replacing your patio door is forgetting to embrace natural light. Remember: patio doors can help improve your home’s energy efficiency as by embracing natural light, you can lessen your reliance on artificial lighting during the day. This in turn allows you to reduce your monthly electric bills, all while imparting a sense of spaciousness to your home. With that in mind, when replacing your patio door, be sure to allow one that allows you to maximize the amount of natural light that enters your home.


Failing to Think About Space


While a patio door may look nice on its own when you see it in a catalog, it’s never recommended that you pick it based on its looks alone. In fact, you also need to think about space when conducting a patio door replacement project. This is because if your space is quite small, a hinged French door isn’t recommended as a replacement; instead, you should consider a sliding patio door for your home. On the other hand, if your dining room is big enough, you can install French doors that can further improve the room’s aesthetic appeal.

"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!!!"
