Patio Door Customization: What You Need to Consider

Your home’s patio door provides a visual transition from your kitchen/living room to your patio and surrounding landscape. If you’re looking to get a new one customized for your home, don’t just trust any other contractor for the job. Make sure you work with the right people who can guide you in each step of the process. And as a trusted name in patio door and replacement window services, Renewal by Andersen® of Montana knows what’s best for your home!

Patio Door Customization

Here are a few key factors to consider for your custom patio door:

The Right Material

Patio doors are made with different materials that offer certain benefits and drawbacks. Let’s say you’re keen on getting aluminum patio doors because of their affordability. Aluminum is much lighter compared to wood and vinyl, but you should know that they also have poor insulation. This means they’re not effective in retaining indoor heat, which means your HVAC or furnace will consume more energy during the winter season to maintain room temperature.

Wooden patio doors can also be good options if you’re willing to handle the upkeep. Wood can warp when exposed to high humidity levels and moisture, which is typical of winter weather. Make sure that the doors are applied with the right finish to keep them intact. Other materials such as vinyl are much stronger than aluminum and wood, but they’re not always suitable in cold climates as they become brittle under low temperatures. 

As local professionals in custom windows and doors, we have a material that mimics the likeness of wood while also being twice as strong as vinyl. Our Fibrex® patio doors are made from a special material that offers excellent strength and durability while also performing much better against cold weather!

The Right Style

A patio door’s style should always match your home’s overall visual exteriors. You can select either a sliding patio door or a hinged French patio door depending on your needs and preferences. Many homeowners would get traditional French patio doors because of their timeless design while others go for sliding patio doors for ease of use. Sliding French patio doors are also an option if you want the best of both worlds!

The company kept in contact with me before, during, and after the installation and let me know what to expect. I'm in love with my new windows!
