Patio Doors: To replace or Not to replace?

Here are some symptoms that indicate the need for replacement doors.

  • The door gets stuck or is difficult to open. Normal wear and tear, severe weather conditions like heavy rains or snow, or too much sun can warp dorm frames. This makes it difficult to open and/or close the door.
  • The temperature in the room is unusual. If the room is too cold, too hot, or drafty; it means the door’s seals are compromised. This decreases your home’s energy efficiency and increases cooling and heating costs.
  • There are leaks, cracks, and other visible signs of damage. Leaks, cracks, gaps, peeling, chipping, blistering, warping, and other obvious signs of damage can lead to further damage and more costs in the long run.
  • They are outdated. Doors can make or break your house’s aesthetics. More modern styles increase the value of your home and your home’s energy efficiency.

Choosing the Best Patio Door Material

  • Wood – Many manufacturers use different kinds of materials but a lot of them are designed to look like wood. Why? Because there is nothing more elegant and timeless than wood. Wood door frames add charm and flair to any home.
  • Moving Glass Walls with Aluminum or Aluminum-clad Wood Frame – Modern, sleek, and functional; moving glass walls allow you to have sweeping outdoor views, tons of natural daylight, and seamless indoor and outdoor living.
  • Fiberglass – Fiberglass is built to last, is low maintenance, and is easy on the eyes, too. They adjust well to temperature changes, so they are virtually warp-resistant as well as energy-efficient.
  • Aluminum – Go for narrow aluminum frames for a sleek and modern vibe. They are less expensive than other frame materials and easy to maintain.
  • The Cost
