4 Things to Consider Before a Patio Door Replacement

Have you checked your patio doors lately? Are they looking worse for the wear? Then, your doors should be replaced promptly. Fortunately, starting this project is not as daunting as you might expect, especially when you know which bases to cover.


1. Choose a patio door style that suits your needs. Patio doors usually come in two styles: hinged French and sliding contemporary. The former is a perfect match for more traditional home styles like Colonial, Farmhouse or Craftsman because of its classic design. Hinged French doors create a wide opening that helps blur the line between your home’s interior and patio, making entertaining large groups of people a breeze.

If you own a Modern or Contemporary home, you can go for sliding patio doors. Their sleek frames and large glass area allow for a lovely, panoramic view of the outdoors while providing superior access to natural light. What’s more, sliding glass doors are easier and smoother to operate.

2. Keep door customization in mind. You’ll want your new patio doors to be a focal point in your home. Choose a patio door color that can blend seamlessly with your home’s existing architectural style and exterior palette. Don’t overlook the smaller details, such as hardware finish, because they add something special to your door’s overall appearance. Speaking of hardware, make sure your new doors come with a durable locking system to enhance your home’s safety and security.

3. Consider the glass included with your new patio door. To prevent heat transfer to your home via the new doors, make sure they come with energy-efficient glass. This way, you can maintain a consistent and comfortable temperature in your living space.
