Drafty Patio Door
Older patio doors were not built with insulation in mind. Elements such as the frame material, glass, weather stripping, and frame fit all affect your energy loss. Energy efficient patio doors should seal tightly to all areas of the jamb and have coated glass. Fiberglass and vinyl frames insulate significantly better than aluminum, which conducts heat.
Getting New Windows
Sometimes the patio door is forgotten as an important window in the house. We have patio doors to match all the windows we sell.
Single Pane Glass
According to ENERGY STAR, replacing single-pane glass with an ENERGY STAR-rated glass can save you between $146-$501 annually and 1,147-3,839 pounds of CO₂. Plus, upgrading to energy efficient double pane glass will increase your home’s overall comfort and security.
Similar to windows, your home’s patio door plays a crucial role in blocking noise. This is especially true if you live near a busy street or an airport. Our patio doors are engineered with advanced technology to reduce sound transmission.
Leaky Patio or French Door
French doors can be negatively affected by weather, warping beyond what can be corrected with weather stripping and locks. A leaky patio door can ruin interior floors and is a clear sign that patio door replacement should be considered.
