New Patio Door

If It’s Compromising Your Home’s Insulation

The windows and doors in your house serve as insulation for your home. If the comfortable temperature inside your home is being wasted through your defective patio door, you should consider replacing it. Make sure that your patio door still protects you from the harsh weather outside. A common sign that your home is poorly insulated is when there’s a sudden increase in your energy bill. You can test this by standing at your door and feeling the temperature change.

If Your Having Trouble Opening It

It may be necessary to replace your patio door if it is difficult for you to open and close it. If you can’t slide your door easily, the problem may be on the rollers. There is also a chance the door is misaligned on its track. You can look at the frame of your patio door. There’s a chance that the intense weather may have damaged and weakened it. A patio door should open and close easily without any obstructions. As an emergency exit, it’s important to keep it properly functioning.

"We love our new windows. The install was painless even with moving around 3 dogs as the crew worked through the house. So glad we went with Anderson windows."
