Your patio doors are responsible for transitioning your interior to your exterior or garden area. As the literal gateway into your house from the outdoors, it needs to be tough and resilient. All doors are naturally tough, but there are certain factors that can affect how long they stay sturdy in your home.
Renewal by Andersen® of New Mexico shares what these factors are in this post.
What your doors are made of will affect how well your door operates. Keep in mind that not all materials react the same way to certain factors like the weather. Wood, for example, has high heat tolerance but is not as tough against water.
Our patio and french doors are made of high-quality materials. More importantly, we take into account your local climate when we manufacture your custom door. When we install your new patio doors, you have the peace of mind knowing the material we used is the right one for your local weather.
Patio doors feature large glass areas, and the glass itself must be the right kind to handle the heat from the sun. Failure to pick the right one will result in a patio door that’s too hot and will let a lot of UV light into your home.
Glazing is especially important for the sliding patio door design as it has a larger glass area than the classic design. At Renewal by Andersen® of New Mexico, all of our patio doors come with advanced High Performance™ Low-E4® glass. Our SmartSun™ variant blocks 95% of harmful UV light entering your home, and is 56% more energy-efficient during summer and 47% more energy-efficient during winter.
Finally, keep in mind that your new patio door is only as good as how well it was installed. That’s why it’s important to work with an experienced contractor when you plan to install or replace your old patio doors.
At Renewal by Andersen® of New Mexico, we custom manufacture your new doors. This means the hardware we install is unique to your home and takes into account your property’s measurements. Quality installation is what you can expect from us.
