Patio Door Customization Tips to Keep in Mind

Patio doors provide a nice visual complement to your home’s exteriors while also offering a glimpse into its interior design. They also serve as a nice transition from your kitchen/living room to your patio and surrounding landscape. If you’re planning to get a custom patio door for your home, Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis shares a few helpful tips to keep in mind. As a top choice for patio door and window installation companies, we want what’s best for your home!

Patio Door Customization

Choose the Right Material

There are many different materials to choose from for your patio doors, and each has its unique benefits and drawbacks. Aluminum patio doors, for example, are incredibly inexpensive and lightweight compared to wood and vinyl. However, they’re also not effective in retaining indoor heat which can mean higher energy costs during the winter season.

If you’re looking for a material that’s a cut above the rest, professionals in energy efficient windows and doors will recommend getting Fibrex® patio doors. Fibrex material offers twice the strength and durability of vinyl but performs much better when exposed to different temperatures and weather conditions! This is because they’re made from 40 percent reclaimed wood fiber by weight and 60 percent reclaimed thermoplastic polymer. This material also reduces thermal transfer 700 times better than aluminum, so you can keep your monthly energy consumption low throughout the winter season!

Pick the Right Style

Naturally, you should get a patio door style that matches your home’s overall visual design. Typically, you’ll select either hinged French patio doors or sliding patio doors depending on your personal preference. If you’re not sure which to pick, we also offer sliding French patio doors that combine the best of both worlds. That means you get the traditional French patio door design along with the convenience offered by the sliding function!

"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!!!"
