Like with entry doors, patio doors also keep the elements out while adding beauty to your home. They also make transitioning from your home’s interior to the outdoors seamless and convenient. Various factors, however, can affect their performance.
Overexposure to the Elements
Severe weather conditions, such as extreme heat and frequent rains, can deteriorate or even seriously damage your patio doors. On your next patio door project, make sure you look for one that can withstand severe weather. Our patio doors are manufactured to last for many years. They are made of strong wood covered with vinyl, fiberglass, or aluminum, making them resistant to the elements. You can also expect them to operate normally, despite sudden changes in temperature.
Defective or Damaged Hardware
Door mechanisms plays a big role in their performance. This means that if a component starts to deteriorate due to excessive use or weathering, your doors may not open or close properly. When choosing patio doors, make sure to invest in those that come with high-quality components similar to what we offer. Our sliding doors, for instance, feature durable and efficient track rollers for ease of function.
While quality material and components are essential for reliable patio doors, it’s the quality of their installation that determines its overall performance. Flawed installation can lead to uneven door levels and let drafts in your home. This can also make it hard to operate the door. Fortunately, you can count on us for a seamless door installation. We have years of experience and extensive training that will help us make sure that your doors are airtight and efficient.
