Changing the look of your patio can be accomplished with something as simple as putting in new patio door. How your house was built will greatly dictate what type of new door you can install, so it is best to employee the help of a professional company if you plan on making drastic changes. A company like Renewal by Andersen can help you determine not only if you can install a different type of door than what you already have, they can also direct you to the best replacement door if you decide to stay with the same type of door.
A Basic Patio Door
Some homes have a simple, hinged door that leads to their patio; similar to the doors that are found at the entrance of a home. Replacing this type of patio door is as simple as choosing a new exterior door that looks better.
The difficulty comes in when you want to change this simple door type with a new patio door like a gliding door or French doors. Because these other door types are larger than the door that is already in place, the surrounding walls have to be cut into. In some homes there is no room to make this expansion. In other homes a professional will need to assist you in removing the wall and the items in the wall to be able to put in a larger patio door.
French Patio doors are double doors that swing open. If you already have these in place and want to change the look of your patio, you don’t have to change the type of door you have. Instead you can select a new style of French doors, new colors, patterns on the glass and even screens to put on the door.
There are so many different things that you can change on a French patio door, that these doors make giving your patio a new look simple and easy.
Gliding Patio Doors
Gliding patio doors are on a track where one or more of the glass doors glide open. They have a large selection of styles, colors, and materials to choose from; so changing the look of your patio by changing this type of patio door can be easy. Well, making the selection can be easy; but making the change can be complicated.
That’s why talking to a Renewal by Andersen representative before you get your heart set on changing to a particular style is always a good choice. They can help you decide what changes to this type of patio door are the easiest or will make the biggest difference in how your patio looks.
