Patio doors play a vital role in a home’s beauty, energy efficiency and security. Since they’re exposed to the elements 24/7, they’ll eventually succumb to wear and tear and require replacement.
Today, Renewal by Andersen® of Austin, your local source of doors and windows, shares the signs it’s time to replace your patio doors.
Difficulty Opening and Closing the Doors
This problem is more than just an inconvenience—it’s a safety hazard that could compromise the security of your home. If opening and closing your sliding doors has become difficult, it could mean they need to be replaced. The rollers on the bottom part of the doors may have sustained damage, one of the doors may be misaligned from the track or the frames may have been damaged due to constant exposure to the elements.
Like custom windows, patio doors play an important role in keeping your home comfortable all year round. If you notice drafts around your patio doors, it could mean there’s a leak. This indicates poor insulation, which leads to wasted energy that results in a steady rise in monthly energy costs.
Condensation Between Glass Panes
Check for condensation that has built up inside the glass panes of the door. This means the seal is compromised, with air and moisture finding their way between the panes.
