Patio doors are a great addition to any home, but just like any other type of door, they’re not without their disadvantages. Fortunately, a few upgrades can address these disadvantages. Renewal by Andersen® of San Antonio gives some suggestions below.
Locks for Sliding Patio Doors
A lot of homeowners have concerns about the security of sliding patio doors. Dust and grime can easily accumulate in the tracks, preventing the door from closing properly. Unwanted guests can also jimmy the lock open, although this is true for any other kind of door as well.
Security is less of a concern for our patio doors. Our unique reach-out lock pulls the door panel into the frame, making the door secure and airtight. If you want additional peace of mind, our French patio doors come with a five-point locking system for extra security.
Improved natural indoor lighting is one advantage patio doors have over other types of doors, as more sunlight can pass through their wide glass panels. Better natural lighting can help make a cramped room feel bigger and brighten the mood inside the house. Of course, sunlight can be too much of a good thing, which is why it’s highly recommended that you install patio doors with glass glazing.
Our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass can help prevent the transfer of heat in patio and entry doors, reducing energy costs. Compared to standard glass, our low-E4 glass is 56% more energy efficient in the summer and 45% more energy efficient in the winter.
Building on Your Patio Doors’ Advantages
Glass patio door panels already add a touch of elegance to your exterior, but you can build on that further by installing grilles and using unique colors.
